Covid-19: Vaccines Produced In Nigeria Meets International Standard – NAFDAC

 

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has assured Nigerians during the weekend that COVID-19 vaccines produced in Nigeria will meet international standards.

The Director General of the agency, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, made this assertion during the oversight visit to the NAFDAC facilities and COVID-19 laboratory projects in Lagos by the House of Representatives Committee on COVID-19.

According to her, “We have the African Free trade Agreement already here with us now for the nation’s pharmaceutical industry to take advantage of with quality products. There will be a lot of competition, and if NAFDAC’s laboratory is not strengthened, we will not be able to compete.”

She stated, “For Vaccine, we are hoping that the vaccine facilities from the public-private partnership will soon happen’’, warning that ‘’but if the regulatory agency is not strong, we can make a vaccine that will destroy our people.”

While affirming the strong tie between NAFDAC and the World Health Organization, WHO  Prof. Adeyeye maintained that ‘’Nigeria can now make her vaccines, and we can assure the populace that there is quality in whatever is being manufactured because of NAFDAC’s strength’’.
