The United Fish Sellers Association of Nigeria has expressed its readiness to combat those operatingÂ substandard coldrooms in Lagos.
In a statement signed by the associationâ€™s General Secretary, Nureni Akiode, members of the union saidÂ they will assist the government to ensure healthy living of citizens by sensitising all fish sellersÂ in the state on the need to maintain hygiene at all times.
According to the statement, â€œwe shall send our monitoring team to all coldroom operators in the stateÂ to solicit their support in order to ensure that none of our members engage or pratronise illegalÂ substandard coldrooms.
â€œAfter visitations, we shall release the list of standard cold rooms to our members after which weÂ will take necessary actions against any erring operator.â€
