- A former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has said that it would be difficult to let Nigerians see reasons why they should check expiry dates of looted items
- This is coming after reports of hoodlums breaking into warehouses in many states and carting foodstuffs
- Sani's tweet received mixed reactions from people as some said that hungry people are not concerned if food items are bad or not
As looting continues nationwide, especially the breaking of warehouses storing Covid-19 palliatives, Shehu Sani spoke about the possible fallout of the situation.
In a tweet on Sunday, October 25, the former member of the upper chamber, hinted that some of the looted items could be bad for consumption as he said:
"It’s difficult to convince people to check the expiry date of those cartons of Indomie and Bags of Rice."
Many have since reacted to his post on the bird app as some said that even if some of the items are bad, cooking would right the situation.

As at the time of writing this report, his post has gathered tens of comments and hundreds of likes.
Below were some people's reactions:
"At this point expiry dates means nothing to them. The Government that kept those covid-19 palliatives knows it won't expire anytime soon! More so 'disease no dey kill black'."
"I never knew u are so good I'm comedy,, watin concern aboki and expiry date. Open make we cook jor."
"Not when the stomach hasn't condemned it."
"Goods are usually not stored beyond their expiry in warehouses, especially goods such as palliatives...I think people know that. There's definitely a timed purpose for warehousing them which would not outstretch the expiry dates."
"Expiry date in the face of hunger! Hu cares? It's easier to turn out progressive and constructive discussion when people don 'belleful.'"

"But why stock up palliatives meant for the poor masses without checking the expiration date."
"Don’t worry sir, it’s dry goods, hence it’s best before & not use by. They are safe to eat."
