NAFDAC Director-General, Professor Mojisola Adeyeye speaks on drug insecurity during an interview on Sunrise Daily on March 3, 2020.

 

The only ingredient Nigerian pharmaceutical companies do not import is water, according to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control.

However this is changing as the Muhammadu Buhari administration steps up investment in the sector, Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye said on Saturday during her appearance on Sunrise Saturday.

“That is changing as we speak,” she said. “There are two or three companies now that is going to be making some active pharmaceutical ingredients.

“There is another talk about making lactose. Lactose is one of the nonactive ingredients – we cannot even make it because we think importation is the best thing, but it is the worst thing that could have happened to us.”
