Sachet alcohol prohibition raises concerns among manufacturers about potential job losses totaling 5.5 million


The Distillers And Blenders Association Of Nigeria warns of significant consequences if the Federal Government maintains the recent ban on sachet and PET bottle alcohol production and sales, estimating losses exceeding N1.2tn and potential unemployment for 5.5 million workers.

DIBAN, a sub-sector of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, expressed its concerns in a letter to President Bola Tinubu, disputing NAFDAC’s justification for the ban and emphasizing the absence of evidence linking alcoholic beverages in sachets and pet bottles to hard drugs.

DIBAN, with a conglomerate membership of over 24 corporate organizations, urges the president to lift the ban and advocates for increased monitoring rather than an outright prohibition to safeguard investments and jobs.
