Barely two days after some negative report on the Nigerian Yam export, that some yam exporters to Europe and the U.S. have decried negative reports about the produce, saying it is de-marketing Nigerian yams in the international market. A positive news has emerged that BA will now fly yam from Nigeria to UK.
According to report, British Airways has offered to fly Nigerian yams to the United Kingdom in a bid to sustain the export of the produce.
Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, disclosed this during a chat with the press in Abuja, weekend.
He said: “British Airlines just called and said they are willing to fly the yams. You know when they are leaving Nigeria they carry no cargo, it is only when Nigerians are coming back that they overload the whole place with hand luggage. So they said the luggage holes can take one or two tons of yams.
