  1. God saves Us. They won't kill us

  2. Fake maleria in circulation? How do we identify it and how proactive is NAFDAC

    1. As in eeeeh, did you even 'BOTHER' reading this before rushing to comment??
      And go back and try and read it, do it slowly while at it.

  3. Now that Buhari is back in power everything has gone down. Fake drugs are back. Did Dora die in vain? He has taken us backwards not forwards.

  4. Omo yibo,this one na from Aba.

  5. I pray Nigeria gets to a point where all you could buy in a pharmacy will be multivitamins ,paracetamol and pain killers supplied to the pharmacy directly from the manufacturer. Anything asides that,will be prescribed by a certified GP,and you get this from the pharmaceutical section of the hospital which will be strictly controlled by an org. How can someone use his\her money to buy death?

  6. That's why I am always ask God to take sickness far away from me and my family. 👪

  7. Jeezzzz
    Ever since late Dora akunyili left NAFDAC, it has never been the same again.
    May she continue to rest in perfect peace
    As for those fake drugs peddlers, Na una generation go die from d fake drugs, & not innocent human beings.

    1. And when the culprit are caught and punished we will be hearing 'how good a man/woman he is'. Meanwhile so many death may have resulted by their wickedness and greed.
      May God save us all.

  8. People who indulge in manufacturing and selling fake products God is watching you and His wrath will definitely fall on you
