NAFDAC Bans 30 Pesticides, Other Chemicals, Says Nigeria Not A Dumping Ground

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administra­tion and Control (NAFDAC) has refuted claims that 40 per­cent of registered brands (not active ingredients) of pesti­cide products used in Nigeria are banned or restricted for use in the European Union (EU), putting humans, ani­mals, and the environment at danger.

The agency’s Director-General, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye, stated this during the organisation’s two-day top management committee meeting in Lagos.

Prof. Adeyeye said in a statement released by Sayo Akintola, Resident Media Consultant, on Sunday that NAFDAC is an ISO: 900: 2015 Quality Management System (QMS) certified organization that has established proce­dures to allow the Agency to make regulatory decisions about whether an active in­gredient should be banned or restricted.
