The Kano State Consumer Protection Council,(KCPC) has ordered the immediate closure of all restaurant, bakery, table water producing companies and other food processing companies without a health certificate.

The Acting Managing Director of the Council, Alhaji Baffa Babba Dan’agundi gave the directive on Friday afternoon after the expiration of a two weeks grace period issued to all concerned.

This was contained in a statement issued by Council Information Officer, Musbahu Aminu Yakasai, on Friday and sent to Solacebase.
