NewsMonitor recalls that the Federal Government in April inaugurated a Task Force Committee under the National Fertilizer Quality Control Act 2019 in the Ministry of Agriculture and rural development to monitor and control chemical use in production of fertiliser.
The Committee would also ensure compliance with the recommended standard in the production of fertilisers.
Echeng said that fertilisers must be properly and professionally handle to ensure they did not get into the had of unpatriotic elements.

“More especially *Urea* also known as carbamide, is an organic compound with chemical formula CO(NH2) must be handled with care because if it finds its way into wrong hands can be used to produce explosives,” he said.
