The Federal Government says it is set to convert all the waste from slaughtered animals in abattoir to manure and liquid fertiliser.
The Registrar, Environmental Health Council of Nigeria (EHCN), Dr Yakubu Baba, made the commitment in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said the council is coming up with public health solution, whereby all the wastes in the abattoir will be converted into wealth by providing manure to our farmers.
According to him, the council is developing a public health solution in which all the wastes from the abattoir will be turned into money by giving our farmers manure.
“The council wants to ensure that wastes that come out of any slaughtered animal will no longer be wasteful, rather such wastes will be converted into manure and the manure will be sold to our farmers.
“The solid that will come out from the biogas digester is a manure that can be packaged and sold to farmers.
“The liquid content also will be bottled as a liquid fertiliser and sold to the farmers as well,” he said.
