Pharmacy Laws by Gummy8: 7:19am On Nov 25
The pharmacists council of Nigeria is the only legally recognized body to regulate the training and licensing of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians as well as pharmacies and patent medicine vendors, and i am very sure they never sent you on this your fraudulent mission.
Those illegal pharmacies and patent medicine stores you talked about are ILLEGAL and when the long arms of the law catches up with them, they not only lose their monies but face the full wrath of the law. Many such illegal premises have been closed down in recent time by PCN and i advise you to visit PCN website to get informed.

Drugs are sensitive substances that shouldn't be sold like every other goods, hence some countries don't even allow the patent medicine dealership as we have here in Nigeria. This is why self medication is so rampant here with the resultant high death rate. Go to even Ghana, they don't have patent medicine dealers. In Nigeria, they were meant to serve the people in rural areas where pharmacists can not cover, but due to negligence of the regulatory bodies they now operate in urban areas. Even at that they are still kept in check to ensure that they deal only on over the counter medicines(OTCs).

My friend stop deceiving people here! You can't train anybody to open a pharmacy without the person being a pharmacist or having a superintendent pharmacist. Unless the person wants to waste his money because pharmacists council of Nigeria will not hesitate to lock up such shops and have the person arrested.

Those who tried lost their monies.

If you want to run a pharmacy, go to pharmacy school and get trained. Simple!

Gummy8:
If that were the case, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY UNLICENSED PHARMACIES/CHEMIST in the county?
If you do not know, get the necessary information and don't hinder people from getting help and improving their lives.
The course is called MEDICINE COUNTER ASSISTANT and not Pharmacist. They get hands on training on Pharmacology and dispensing techniques and lots more. In addition to that, they are coached on HOW TO START UP AND RUN A PHARMACY, meaning they are taught the "know-how" of starting a Pharmacy. Of course it is common knowledge that a Pharmacy Technician and Pharmacy Assistants all function under the supervision of a Licensed Pharmacist and running a Pharmacy is no different.
My friend, don't be an enemy of progress, encourage growth...ignorance is killing Nigeria today and we need to stop it.
GET THE FACTS RIGHT!!!
If i may ask, who licensed you to TRAIN people on how to PREPARE and DISPENSE pharmaceutical products. You are the ignorant one here or just a scammer who is looking for gullible people to defraud. The pharmacists council of Nigeria is the only legally recognized body to regulate the training and licensing of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians as well as pharmacies and patent medicine vendors, and i am very sure they never sent you on this your fraudulent mission.
Those illegal pharmacies and patent medicine stores you talked about are ILLEGAL and when the long arms of the law catches up with them, they not only lose their monies but face the full wrath of the law.

So mr man, you can't train anybody to Prepare and sale pharmaceutical products like you claimed, only the universities can do that under the supervision of PCN. Stop looking for gullible people to scam.

I searched the name of your "organization" on PCN website to see if it is a registered institution, but alas my suspicion has been confirmed! You are nothing but a fraudster looking for people to dupe.

I have also sent your contacts to PCN, so get ready to face the law.
