Member of Parliament (MP) for Lawra and deputy minister-designate for Roads and Highways, Anthony Abayifa Karbo says he believes dog meat can be packaged and exported.
According to the MP its feasible to establish dog meat factories in the three northern regions to export the ‘delicacy’.
He opined such a move could help reduce the current rate of unemployment in the three northern regions.
Karbo made the revelation when he appeared before the vetting committee as a nominee
for the deputy roads and highway portfolio.
“The same way, you know Dagartis and Frafras are play mates and some honourable friends [MPs] here will admit that dog meat is a delicacy and a huge delicacy in Korea and China. Dog meat is an exportable product. Let’s put all jokes aside, I have lived in Bolga for so many years and I know there are dog hunters in Bolga who go around buying dogs and hunting for dogs. It’s a big delicacy,” he added.

Expatiating more on his suggestion, Mr Karbo stated that such a factory would not be a bad idea because the dog meat could be potentially exported to China, Korea and other parts of Asia, where it (dog meat) is already a delicacy.
