The federal government of Nigeria has indicated its determination to stop the sale of drugs in open markets in the country at the end of 2018.
The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, made this known on Saturday when he visited the site for the construction of a Pharmaceutical Coordinated Wholesale Centre at Oba, near Onitsha in Anambra.
According to him, the Federal Government had announced July 31, 2017 as the deadline to end the sale of drugs in open markets.
“May be people still believe that the Federal Government is joking, government does not joke.
“We do not want fake drugs or falsified labels; we just want genuine drugs and the only way to do so is centralizing the drug market so that we can determine what comes in and what goes out.
