Substandard Products: NAFDAC warns Manufacturers, Dealers In Imo State

Manufacturers and dealers of regulated products have received a strong warning from NAFDAC, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, to desist from creating and marketing counterfeit and inferior goods.

The alert was delivered at a stakeholders’ meeting on Friday in Owerri by the agency’s South East Zonal Director, Martins Iluyomade.

The agency’s State Director, Mercy Ndukwe, arranged the gathering for representatives of several associations that handle NAFDAC-regulated goods in the region.

According to Iluyomade, the organization was prepared to guarantee that goods produced and marketed in the nation had standard certification on a national and worldwide level.

He tasked the officers with making sure the goods they sell to Nigerians unsupervised are of the same caliber as those they roll out during production inspection.

“NAFDAC is now going beyond testing your products only at the production inspection stage.

“We have constituted a committee that goes into the markets to purchase any product of our choice for our personal analysis,” he said.

The purpose of the meeting, according to the State Director of NAFDAC, was to collaborate with the stakeholders and update them on the agency’s year-long operations.

Ndukwe added that the purpose of the meeting was to make sure that the stakeholders did not carelessly violate NAFDAC norms in the course of conducting business.

Dr. Norbert Ajero, the state chairman of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, stated in a statement that members would keep trying their hardest to support the agency’s operations.
