The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has vowed to shut down packaged water production facilities that fail the Good Manufacturing Practice requirements as it pledges to collaborate with various associations in the efforts to sanitise the packaged water sector of the economy.
Director-General of NAFDAC, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, disclosed these in Abuja, at a virtual stakeholders’ meeting with packaged water producers in Nigeria on the need to sanitise the industry.

Professor Adeyeye, however, appealed to the four hundred and twelve producers that participated in the interactive forum to always ensure that the level of compliance with NAFDAC regulatory requirements for which their products were registered be maintained at all times.

The Director-General in a statement signed by Resident Media Consultant to NAFDAC, Sayo Akintola, yesterday, expressed dismay that after procuring registration approval, many of the over sixteen thousand registered producers of packaged water across Nigeria, more often than not, do lower standards and produce under despicable conditions, putting the health of Nigerians at risk.
