DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
(Tip 237)
“IT IS A CRIME TO KEEP, SELL OR DISTRIBUTE FERTILISER WITHOUT APPROVAL OR EXPORT SAME IN NIGERIA.”

Fertiliser is a government controlled commodity in Nigeria. Federal government determines who sells, distributes, transports and keeps custody of fertiliser as well as selling points.
It is a crime for any person to deal on fertiliser, sell, distribute, convert, dump or transport fertiliser in any part of Nigeria without approval of the Minister of Agriculture or his delegate. It is also a crime to export fertiliser from Nigeria. The offences are punishable with 10 years imprisonment without an option of fine.

My authorities are sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 11 of the Fertiliser (Control) Act, 1992.
