Award winning Ace Musician, Mr Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo popularly known as D’Banj today stormed the new ultra modern regional administrative headquarter and laboratories of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) in Lagos to lend support to the Agency’s renowned Public Enlightenment Campaign against counterfeit drugs and other substandard regulated products in the country.
D’banj who was conducted round NAFDAC’s laboratories at oshodi and yaba strongly commended the Agency for its relentless fight against counterfeit drugs and efforts to save the lives of millions of Nigerians.
He explained that his tour of NAFDAC laboratories and the illuminating explanations offered by the Regulatory officers on duty should be widely disseminated to millions of vibrant Nigerian youths who are ignorant about public health issues and regulatory activities.
His words “I am very impressed and inspired with what I have seen at NAFDAC laboratories and other offices. Before now I find it difficult to distinguish a genuine drug from the counterfeit. We hear a lot of news about fake drugs. From what i have seen today, I am well informed. On behalf of the Nigerian youths, I just have to commend NAFDAC for their good works”.
D’banj who was visibly mobbed by enthusiastic fans praised the Director – General of NAFDAC for taking the Agency to greater heights as one of the top 20 medicines Regulatory Authorities in the world.
Director – General of NAFDAC, Dr. Paul Orhii who was highly elated said D’banj’s visit was a morale booster and source of encouragement for the NAFDAC Regulatory workers saddled with the sacred mandate of safeguarding public health.
Dr. Orhii thanked the celebrated musician for his show of solidarity and readiness to strengthen NAFDAC’s public enlightenment campaign through his musical platform.
