Ebonyi State Governor Bans Consumption Of Fanta, Sprite & Coke At Government Functions


Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has banned the consumption of Coke, Sprite and Fanta at government functions in the state over health risk. Umahi gave the order during a meeting with traditional rulers and town union executives in the state.
“I don’t want these brands of soft drink to be served in any government function again”, David Umahi stated this while entering his lodge, venue of the Tuesday meeting, and noticed the soft drinks on the tables.
Umahi then ordered the ushers to remove all bottles of Coke, Sprite and Fanta from the hall, affirming that “they are dangerous to health.”
It will be recalled that a Lagos State High Court had in a suit between Fijabi Adebo Holdings Limited and Emmanuel Fijabi Adebo against the Nigerian Bottling Company Ltd and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, ruled that Fanta Orange and Sprite may be hazardous if consumed with vitamin C.
According to the Court, the soft drinks may contain high level of two additives, benzoic acid and sunset yellow, which may be dangerous for human consumption.
