Ondo State Bans Locally Made Gin

The production of locally made gin otherwise known as “Ogogoro” is now prohibited in Ondo state, The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju, said this at the weekend, while addressing journalists, in Akure.


He said “We appeal to the general public to desist from drinking the gin until we are able to identify the source of contamination or find out how the methanol got into the drinks”.
“Until we are able to get the source of contamination or how the methanol get into the ‘Ogogoro’, it would remain banned in the entire state, not even only in Irele.
“We don’t know the extent of the contamination. We just need this sacrifice now, so that Ondo State would be free from this deadly disease,”

The health commissioner, affirmed that the state government was already putting modalities in place and synergiseing with the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and the National Orientation Agency (NOA) to sensitise members of the public on the dangers of consuming such drinks.
