Kano orders immediate closure of restaurants, bakeries, others




The Kano State Consumer Protection Council, KCPC has ordered the immediate closure of all restaurants, bakery homes, drinking water producing companies and other food processing companies without health certificates.

The Acting Managing Director of the Council, Hon. Dr. Baffa Babba Dan’agundi gave the directive on Friday afternoon after the expiration of a two-week grace period issued to all concerned.

According to him, the order became pertinent in view of a recent discovery of hepatitis B and other dangerous communicable diseases patients working at such restaurants and other places mentioned above.

Dan’agundi stated that a matching order has been given to his men to clampdown and shut down such premises that are not certified fit to run such business by the State Health Ministry.

This is to further safeguard the lives and health of the people of the State against contracting diseases as a result of patronizing such business premises.
