Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN) and National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) have issued a joint call to pharmaceutical product makers, urging them to cease supplying Sabon Gari Market and Niger Street in Kano.

The two of them issued this call in a joint statement that they shared with reporters in Abuja.

Manufacturers and importers are encouraged to stop selling pharmaceuticals to Niger street and Sabon Gari market in Kano, according to the statement.

The pharmaceutical industry, including producers, wholesalers, importers, and corporate representatives, was the target of the appeal.

Any business discovered to be in violation of the appeal “risks losing site license as well as the product license,” as said in the statement.

Businesses in specific parts of Kano are required by law to stop providing regulated medical products, including pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and more, to local institutions and businesses.

The two groups have announced that starting immediately, all pharmaceutical shipments must be sent to the Dangwauro, Kano State, coordinated wholesale center.

According to the statement, the Kano Medicine Dealers were ordered to leave the Niger Street/Sabon Gari market and move to the coordinated wholesale center in Dangwauro, Kano, after a ruling by the Court of Appeal.

Retailers, healthcare institutions, and other medical institutions were also advised in the statement to pay attention to the warning.
