Why FG should build cold-rooms


The ProtectOzone Sustainable Living Initiative NGO called on the federal government to create cold rooms from solar technology to lengthening nutrients and shelf life of products.

Olakekan Sipasi, the founder of the organization, called in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN) in Lagos.

Sipashi said that the call became necessary because cold stores can store nutrients in food that can be lost to other preservation methods.

“If properly exploited, Nigeria can produce food not only for itself, but also for neighboring countries.

"A world without hunger is possible if parameters are considered that would accelerate the cost of agricultural production, especially in Nigeria."

He said that many farmer settlements or communities can be given lower electricity tariffs to stimulate agricultural production, because farmers need to use technologies that require electricity to function.

“I personally feel that farmers should not pay for the same tariff as ordinary consumers.

“Agricultural communities should have a lower tariff in order to increase food production.

“If we have lower tariffs, agricultural products can be cooled to guarantee a longer shelf life, especially in rural communities,” he said.

He thanked the government for FADAMA programs and other initiatives, adding that such programs increased the harvest.
