We’ve Sustained Akunyili’s Legacy By Wiping Out Fake Drugs, Says NAFDAC by Mrakeli: 6:26am On Mar 26
National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) yesterday said it has sustained the legacy of the late Prof. Dora Akunyili by working towards drug security in Nigeria.

The director-general, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, at a media briefing to mark the 25th anniversary of the agency in Abuja, noted that NAFDAC was able to seize 23 containers of Tramadol worth about N198 billion last year.

According to her, the celebration is to enable the agency “look back to see what we have learnt in the past 25 years.”She said, “Dr. Akunyili was zealous in the fight against substandard drugs. We have continued on that. What is more important for these 25 years is almost like closing the loop of legacy. We are setting a much stronger foundation for NAFDAC to exist for decades to come, so that it will take a genius to destroy it.”Adeyeye stressed that the agency was working towards ensuring that local drug manufacturers were able to sell their products globally.

“So, we are doing things that will position NAFDAC as an agency to compete globally.“Our Gross Domestic Product (GDP), when it comes to pharmaceutical manufacturing, is low. Our goal is to improve the GDP.“We are pursuing improvement of local manufacturing to make sure we don’t have drug insecurity. We are changing so many policies,” she added.

On the improvement of service rendered by the agency, the NAFDAC DG said: “Based on our current process, if you submit an application for food, by 90 days your application should get to the final stage and you will be notified whether it is approved or not; unless there is a problem in the middle. If it is drug, it is 120 days. We are not there yet, but we are 10 times better than where we were nine months ago.

“We are laying a foundation that others after me can build on to benefit this country.“We now do e-registration. We have 200 companies that have signed on already.”The anniversary celebration was preceded by a health walk by workers of the agency and tree planting by the DG.

Dora Akunyili deserve a status. She is a rare gem in our history as a country. Before her reign as NAFDAC boss, only a few knew what NAFDAC is and the duty it performs.

Dora saved millions of lives by destroying illegal drugs cartels.

She is a GEM!

Unfortunately, good people don't live long. It's bad people that spend decades. Which is why I have a big problem with all religions and what their books say.

This woman and present day El Rufai were 2 of the most hard working enthusiastic characters in the then Obj's cabinet. Hate El Rufai all you want. He "may" be something else today, dunno him personally. But he had a drive then.

Spot on! From her reign in NAFDAC to NOA, with the Good People, Great Nation campaign for Nigeria, she made tremendous impact! Memoriams have been made in her honor. I notice one in Enugu and maybe Delta. But, I think more should be done to immortalize her because she's a true patriot. Just like Dr. Stella E, in the heroic Ebola story.

Until I her read a thorough profile in which it was noted that she'd once lost a loved one to fake drugs, I wouldn't have known what drove her to such an extreme in the crusade against fake drugs. Albeit, a bit vengeful, that was fair enough, it birthed the superhero in her, like some Wonder Woman, or Captain Nigeria. Many things inspire our actions, good and bad. It's always good to be passionate about them for the right reasons!

Talking about the incumbent DG keeping her legacy, I'm not very sure about that. I still see a couple of malaria drugs carrying the swoosh, popular Nike logo :-)

This woman has a lot of work to do clean up the mess the last DG created. That good for nothing man, rode on the good will Akunyili created for the agency and he destroyed it and dinned with the criminals Akunyili fought against and he enriched himself at our collective expense.

Dora died with the real NAFDAC. The Igbo's are still producing fake Drugs and foods daily.

God punish NAFDAC and anybody that engage in production of fake Drugs, food and drinks.

Arguably one of the most patriotic Nigerian who ever lived.

She put her life on the line.

She did her work diligently to the T.

Very intelligent.

You are on point bro. That man was a politician with no ethics, only God knows how he got the post. The woman even said things are now better that it was 8months ago, the man no try at all.
Dora, sun ree l'órun.

Yes, you have sustained her legacy. You did well yet an expired malaria drug killed Eric Arubayi in this Obodo Nigeria. With all the fake and sub standard and expired drugs being sold on the streets. How come we still have shacks as drug stores, when pharmacies need to be registered?
