National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control -NAFDAC has urged medicine dealers, stakeholders in pharmaceutical business and Nigerians to share information with it in order to arrest fake medicine paddlers.
The State Coordinator of NAFDAC in Enugu State, Chike Obiano, made the appeal while speaking with journalists in Enugu.
According to Obiano, sharing information and intelligence with NAFDAC will further enhance the regulatory actions and functions of the Agency.
He noted that NAFDAC was intensifying its regulatory functions through regular markets and shops visits, mopping up of expired and suspicious products and use of technology, to track down counterfeited medicines.
He, however, urged stakeholders in the medicine business to secure their supply chain as well as monitor supply chain in their operational areas on receipt of counterfeit product alerts to avoid infiltration.
