The need for change in Hygiene safety and legal regulations in a country with a population of over 200 million must become of concern to the federal government of Nigeria
Standards and Hygiene regulations must be established through a scheme and monitored by an agency to help with food borne diseases and illness from contamination, through poor health hygiene practices, especially commercial consumption of food and drinks.
The spread of Lassa fever, Listeriosis, salmonella and e coli are mostly food borne diseases spread through poor hygiene I.e through the use of dirty utensils and poor hygiene handling of food.
The surdid rate at which food borne illnesses have risen from poor hygiene by commercial operators due to no regulations and monitoring scheme to help reduce the rise of food borne diseases that can lead to mortality is a source of concern and it should be to the public interest that a petition should be signed for the implementation of a Hygiene scheme under a health agency. It will not only save lives but also create employment.
In conclusion this regulatory body will not only help to save lives but will also standardised food hygiene and trainings in Nigeria thereby saving the Gross National Income, GNI of the country by creating employment and establishing a healthier and safer Nigeria
