ABU has rem­edy for Tomato Ebola — VC

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The Vice-Chan­cel­lor, Ah­madu Bello Univer­sity (ABU), Zaria, Prof. Ibrahim Garba, says re­searchers in the in­sti­tu­tion have suc­cess­fully de­vel­oped a rem­edy for Tuta Ab­so­luta, pop­u­larly called Tomato Ebola.

Garba said this while re­spond­ing to ques­tions on the News Agency of Nige­ria (NAN) Fo­rum in Abuja.

He said the univer­sity’s In­sti­tute of Agri­cul­tural Re­search (IAR), which car­ried out the re­search, had since sub­mit­ted its find­ings to the Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture.

He added that due to the dis­cov­ery, the spread of Tuta Ab­so­luta had since been checked.

“Our In­sti­tute of Agri­cul­tural Re­search has al­ready done quite a lot of work and has ac­tu­ally sub­mit­ted a re­port to the min­is­ter. They stud­ied the out­break, found the rem­edy and it has al­ready been ar­rested,’’ he said. (NAN)
