The Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL), Dr. MONDAY UBANI has threatened to sue the Federal Government if it follows through with its threat to ban cooked cow skin, popularly called ‘ponmo’.
UBANI in a statement noted that ponmo is the most common delicacy that is mostly enjoyed by the average citizen due to its affordability, and given that fish, meat and other sources of protein has become very expensive and thus unaffordable by the common man in Nigeria.
UBANI queried the rationale behind government’s resolve to ban one of the very few staples that gives the common man joy.
He also wondered why Nigerian leaders derive so much pleasure in inflicting pain and agony on the common man in every aspect of governance.
