NAFDAC Introduces E-Registration, Justifies Action
The NAFDAC agency introduces the new e-registration to simplify the Registration exercise for its customers.
Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, the NAFDAC’s Director-General, said this in an interview with news reporters in FCT, Abuja.
Adeyeye also said the NAFDAC agency would embrace digitisation in carrying out its activities to help reduce regular human interaction.
She also noted that the reforms are aimed at creating a disciplined workforce geared at proper service delivery.
“Our staff do so much work daily.
“We go through danger, including the threat of kidnapping, and with all these, we have to have a disciplined workforce.
Our reform unit work round the clock, our staff have been trained, we are trying to look at the act regulating the agency and make sure we increase fines for those who violated our law.
“National task force against counterfeit and unregulated products is resident in NAFDAC; there are also standby policemen who follow us during investigations.
“We are mopping up the mess created in NAFDAC between 2011 and 2018,” Adeyeye added.
She further said that the agency had decentralised power to zonal offices to allow for direct interaction with customers and promote the ease of doing business initiative.
“We decentralized the food and simple cosmetics to the zones to allow for direct interaction with customers, she added.
