Nigeria seeks certification to export honey to EU, Awolowo says at TEF forum

Nigeria is working to get certification from the European Union to export its agriculture products, Olusegun Awolowo, the chief executive of Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) said at the ongoing Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Forum in Abuja.

Products such as honey and others are on the list of products the agency is pushing to get EU certification for, he said.

Awolowo spoke as a plenary member on Tackling the Challenges that Plague African Entrepreneurs at the Forum.

He reiterated that Nigeria is focused on generating more revenue from its non oil sector, as the country targets at least N2.8 trillion in export revenue.
