Moghalu Supports Nigerians in their Protest Against Proposed ‘Ponmo’ Ban

The Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria -CBN, Kingsley Moghalu, on Monday, reacted to the proposed ban of cowhide otherwise known as ‘Ponmo’ or ‘Kanda’ in Nigeria.

This is coming after the Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of Leather and Science Technology, Zaria, Prof. Muhammad Yakubu, had recently announced that the institute and other stakeholders would approach the National Assembly so that legislation on the consumption of cow skin can be established.

According to Prof. Yakubu, the decision was aimed at reviving the abandoned tanneries and leather industry in the country.

However, this announcement did not go down well with Nigerians as they had immediately kicked against the proposed ban while slamming the Federal Government for being insensitive to their plights. Moghalu who had made a series of tweets on Twitter had described the proposed ban as unimaginative.

Moghalu had additionally, pleaded with the government to use that same energy to ban motorcycles used by Boko Haram insurgents and bandits in the country.
