NAFDAC Begins Testing Of COVID-19 Remedy Drugs



Director-General National Agency for Food Drugs and Administration Control (NAFDAC) Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye says it has started working on Coronavirus potential remedy drugs submitted by Nigerians.


Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye disclosed that the submissions were made after the agency called for expression of interest for the COVID-19 related medicines from researchers and practitioners.


The DG also added that the four applications submitted would undergo “due diligence”.

She said “I made a call for people to submit their application and I believe we have about three or four now and we are going to expedite the processing because it takes a while for us to go through the laboratory testing and what not but I have already given the directive to expedite.


“So, where we are right now is just to make sure that the information submitted is okay and by the end of the week, we may be sending these samples to the lab after we must have gone to inspect the site where the products are made because we don’t want a product that somebody will take and the person will start vomiting.


“So, we will go and inspect the site to make sure that whatever sample we are going to get must have been prepared in an environment that will not make the drug to compromise the health of the user.”
