NAFDAC: Ooni decries fake drugs, demands clampdown on counterfeiters


 


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has urged  the National Agency for Food and Drug Adminstration and Control (NAFDAC) to intensify campaign against fake drugs.


Mr Ogunwusi said this when the agency’s management paid him a courtesy call at his  palace on Wednesday, in Ile-Ife.


The Ooni commended the efforts of the agency  in sensitising the general public on necessary steps to take on proper medication.


According to him, NAFDAC has been contributing their quota to the development of the country by orientating the public on steps to take to safeguard their health.


He called on stakeholders in the health sector to join NAFDAC in fighting against fake drugs and pledging to support the agency.


NAFDAC’s director of special duties Abubakar Jimoh, who represented  the director-general, Mojisola Adeyeye, lauded Mr Ogunwusi for his fatherly role, especially during the upsurge of the coronavirus pandemic.


He said the fumigating  machines distributed by the traditional ruler in all the 36 states and FCT, was a sign of his genuine interest in the health of the people.


Mr Jimoh also said NAFDAC had intensified  campaign against hawking of drugs, drug abuse, loading of groundnut oil in kerosene tankers, among others.
