Furthermore , he stated that  the habit of eating cow skin, which has no nutritional value to human health should be stopped to save the industry and boost the nation’s economy. He said: 

“To the best of my knowledge, Nigerians are the only people in the world that overvalue skin as food, after all, Ponmo has no nutritional value. Going further, he blamed the massive consumption of skin by Nigerians for the present comatose state of tanneries in Nigeria”.
