Gbosa: NAFDAC Reveals how Nigerians spend N1billion on sachet water daily

THE National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has stated that it has made registration of products less cumbersome as one can now register anywhere he or she is resident.

Speaking at a stakeholders’ consultative forum held at Arewa House, Kaduna on Friday, the Acting Director General of NAFDAC, Mr Ademola Mogbojuru, stated that the idea is to key into the recent Federal Government directives of diversifying the economy.

According to the acting DG, the recent study conducted by his agency shows that there are 59 million registered small scale enterprises in the country, adding that this implies that small scale industries hold  the key to our economy.

“It was based on this premise that the management met and resolved to review it’s guidelines and streamline it’s operations to march with the present realities, “he stated.

Represented by the Director, Special Duties, Dr Abubakar Momoh, he assured that the recent move will ensure more entrepreneurs coming to register their products.

Citing example of pure water, the NAFDAC boss affirmed that Nigerians consume 10 million sachets water daily. This according to him means Nigerians spend N1 billion on sachet water daily.
He said the recent drive by the agency will encourage prospective entrepreneurs to register their products.

“We have now decentralised registration in our six geo-political zones.

‘Our zonal coordinators, as well as state coordinators are expected to meet every two weeks to register would be entrepreneurs,”he said.
