Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, the Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has canceled the contract the agency has its consultants over claims of irregularities and anomalies.
Prof. Adeyeye said in a press Statement, that the activities of the consultants were not good for the Federal Government’s ease of doing business policy.
“The operations of the NAFDAC Appointed Consultants in recent times have been fraught with a lot of challenges and irregularities, which militated against the very purpose of their appointment i.e. easing regulatory business of the industry with NAFDAC.
“NAFDAC, in this new dispensation under my watch, cannot allow these anomalies to continue,
“Therefore, I have directed immediate revocation of the appointments of NAFDAC Consultants,’’ the Director-General said.
She added that all organisation and businesses that indend to deal with the agency, should do so directly and not through the cconsultant.
“Each business management interfacing with NAFDAC especially the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME’s)/Academic Consultants and company Regulatory Officers can interface with our staff,’’
