The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, Tuesday, has commended members of the Onitsha Patent and Proprietary Medicine Dealers Union, OPPMDU, for voluntarily surrendering fake and expired drugs to the tune of N25 million to the agency for destruction.
The commendation was given by the Assistant Director of NAFDAC in-charge of Onitsha Special Zonal Office, Dr. Christiana Esenwah, while receiving the drugs from the traders, said the bold initiative was a giant stride towards ridding the market and Onitsha of expired drugs.
In Esenwah’s words, “this goes a long way to show that NAFDAC’s partnership with traders in its fight against fake, sub-standard, expired, unwholesome and adulterated drugs is yielding anticipated results.
“We are grateful for this step of ridding this market of unwholesome, expired, fake and sub-standard drugs for the benefit of all and the agency is still looking up to the market executives to do more.”
