XINHUA 08/08/19 Au moins 200 000 Nigérians meurent d'une intoxication alimentaire par an, selon un responsable. ABUJA, 8 août (Xinhua) -- Au moins 200 000 Nigérians meurent chaque année des suites d'une intoxication alimentaire, une tendance préoccupante que le gouvernement s'emploie à inverser, a annoncé jeudi un responsable.
En outre, le pays africain le plus peuplé enregistre jusqu'à 90 000 cas de maladies d'origine alimentaire, a déclaré le secrétaire permanent du ministère nigérian de la Science et de la Technologie, Bitrus Nabasu. S'exprimant lors d'un atelier sur la sécurité alimentaire dans l'État de Nasarawa, dans le centre du Nigeria, M. Nabasu a dit que de nombreuses mesures sont prises pour lutter contre ce problème. L'intoxication alimentaire est causée par une contamination lors de la transformation et de la conservation des aliments. Le gouvernement est sur le point de conclure un accord avec les acteurs concernés de la chaîne de transformation et de production des aliments afin qu'ils fournissent des données scientifiques factuelles, a-t-il déclaré.

People love eating it. So the BBC's Ijeoma Ndukwe asks: why don't they grow more of it instead of importing so much? A long line of customers queue along a glass divide separating them from a rice food station at an eatery in Lagos, Nigeria's commercial capital. Diners can choose between white rice, fried rice and jollof at this popular local restaurant known as "The White House". A steady flow of customers is served in the main hall, and in two packed adjoining rooms diners are enjoying Nigerian dishes. Rice is the basis of the popular national dish jollof and a staple across the country. The problem is not a lack of land, or that there are not enough people to grow it in Africa's most populous country. During the grain market crisis eight years ago, Nigeria experienced shortages in rice that made the country rethink its food security and ability to supply the local market.

Nigerian flag (sciencekids.co.nz) The Federal Republic of Nigeria shipped US$34.9 billion worth of goods around the globe in 2016, down by -30.2% since 2009 when the Great Recession kicked in and down by -37.9% from 2015 to 2016.Nigeria’s top 10 exports are highly concentrated accounting for 98% of the overall value of the country’s global shipments.
Exported crude oil and petroleum gases account for the largest shares of that top 10 percentage.Based on statistics from the International Monetary Fund’s World Economic Outlook Database, Nigeria’s total Gross Domestic Product amounted to $1.125 trillion in 2016. Therefore, exports represent about 3.1% of total Nigerian economic output.Given Nigeria’s population of 186.1 million people, the total $34.9 billion in 2016 Nigerian exports translates to roughly $190 for every person in the West African nation.Nigeria’s unemployment rate was 13.9% as of September 2016 per Trading Economics.

The presence of the mecA gene in staphylococci codes for methicillin resistance.
It has been reported by Igbinosa et al.  that the detection of the mecA gene in staphylococci is a gold standard for the detection of methicillin-resistant staphylococci, as it codes for the presence of the penicillin binding protein 2a (PBP2a), which has a low affinity for beta-lactam antimicrobials. In the present study, 98% of the isolates that were resistant to methicillin using culture based method prove to harbor the mecA gene thus genetically resistant to the action methicillin. It was observed that there was no significant difference in the respective genes detected from the meat sources (p > 0.05). This could result to the fact that all samples were from animal sources and reports have revealed that they are usually treated with antimicrobials.

Introduction Many health problems encountered today arising from consumption of unsafe food are not new as they date far back in history. JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND EPIDEMIOLOGY - SEPT 2015 - Knowledge of food borne infection and food safety practices among local food handlers in Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of Ogun State. Increase in food borne infection has been linked with the lack of knowledge of food borne infection (FBI) and poor food safety practice (FSP) of food handlers.
This is a major determinant of the kind of patronage received by local restaurants and fast food restaurants. This study was carried out to assess the knowledge of FBI and FSP of local food handlers in Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of Ogun State. Four hundred and seventy three local food handlers (snacks and cooked food handlers) were recruited for the study. Interviewer’s administered questionnaire was used to gather information on knowledge and practice and a score index was then created. Data was analyzed using SPSS version 15. Key words: Food vendors, food borne infection, food safety practices, knowledge score, disease outbreak, hygiene, micro-organism. FBI is usually characterized by diarrhea (which may be sometimes bloody) and vomiting.

Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa with approximately 155 million people , has an estimated 140 million poultry, nearly 60% of which are raised in backyard flocks .
Highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H5N1) (HPAI) in domestic birds was first reported in Africa at a commercial farm in Kaduna state, Nigeria in February 2006 . In response to this outbreak, millions of chickens were culled. Between 2006 and 2011, Nigeria reported 65 HPAI outbreaks in birds , with identification of virus from 3 distinct lineages , suggesting ongoing transmission across and within national borders.
