Executive Chairman of Bogoro Local Government Council of Bauchi State, Hon. Iliya Habila has promised to collaborate with the National Agency for Foods and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), to ensure that only quality consumables and drugs are brought into the area for human consumption.
The Council Chairman made the promise when Bauchi State Coordinator of NAFDAC, Mrs Josephine Daylim paid him an official visit in his office.
Iliya Habila stressed the importance of partnering with relevant agencies towards providing quality drugs and other food commodities in the face of a rising spate of illegal importation of fake drugs in Nigeria.
He, however, called on NAFDAC to intensify efforts to rid the area of all harmful drugs and food items through checks at stores and selling outlets.
Speaking earlier, the Bauchi State Coordinator of NAFDAC Mrs Josephine Daylim said that she was in Bogoro as part of the Agency’s familiarization visit to seek the support of the Council towards eliminating fake drugs and other consumables.
She appealed to residents of Bogoro to be wary of fake drugs in circulation and always ensure that they consumed drugs and food products certified by-products.
