The Masters Bakers and Ca?terers Association of Nigeria (MBCAN), Lagos chapter, at the weekend, appealed to the Federal Government to intervene in the distribution of cassava bread equipment to bakers.
Mr Jacob Adejorin, Chairman of the association, said in Lagos that only few bakers had benefit?ed from government?s grants for the equipment.
He said that the equipment grant was made available through the Bank of Industry (BOI) to guarantee success of the ten per cent cassava flour inclu?sion in bread-making.
Adejorin said that members of the association had completed documentations for the grant as mandated by BOI but that the fund had yet to be disbursed.
??The grant is supposed to be a 50-50 arrangement between the government and the bakers,?? he said.
