Nigerians are foodies, no part of a beef is waste!
Don’t blame Nigerians for not leaving any left over when they eat, its due to the harsh economic conditions many Nigerians face, we cannot afford to be wasteful life when it comes to food and money. Some even say Nigerians have tightened hands, let them say…
This our “waste not, want not” attitude even extends to meat (all forms of red meat). From the hide to the offals, every part of cow, goat, ram, sheep etc is consumed here.

Boiled, fried or even grilled, Fuku is one part of meat we all enjoy eating.
