The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has cautioned clearing agents and importers against illegal activities, saying sanctions await culprits of any shady deals.
The caution is in a statement signed by NAFDAC’s Resident Media Consultant, Mr Olusayo Akintola in Abuja on Sunday.
Akintola stated that the warning was given by the agency’s Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, during a recent virtual stakeholders meeting.
He quoted Adeyeye as saying “NAFDAC will not tolerate any unprofessional act from its stakeholders.
Adeyeye said that it is the disturbing development when agents connive with importers or engage in falsification of documents.
She said they will not tolerate it nor treat the matter with kid gloves by taking all legal means as an agency set up by the Law of Nigeria to prosecute any erring stakeholders, importers.
She also advised importers and clearing agents to ensure that they completed every clearing transaction with NAFDAC up to the point of generation of NAFDAC electronic Release Notices.
