The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, and Pharmacists Council of Nigeria, PCN, have called on pharmaceutical products manufacturers to stop supplying their products to Sabon Gari Market and Niger Street in Kano.

They made this appeal in a statement they jointly signed and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

The statement is titled, ‘Urgent call to action – manufacturers and importers urged to cease supplying medicines to Niger street and Sabon Gari market in Kano’.

The appeal was directed to manufacturers of pharmaceutical products, importers, company representatives and all distributors.

According to the statement, any company found contravening the appeal “risks losing site license as well as the product license”.

It stated that companies must cease supplying pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other regulated medical products to facilities or companies in those areas of Kano.

The both organizations said that all pharmaceutical supplies must henceforth be made at the coordinated wholesale centre in Dangwauro, Kano State.

The statement further said that the appeal followed a judgment by the Court of Appeal ordering Kano Medicine Dealers to vacate Niger Street/Sabon Gari market and to relocate to the coordinated wholesale centre in Dangwauro, Kano.

The statement also urged retailers, hospitals and other medical facilities to heed to the advice.
