Emzor Pharmaceutical Industries Limited has applauded the federal government, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and other relevant agencies for their prompt response to the abuse of codeine syrup in Nigeria.

The General Managing Director, Emzor Pharmaceutical Industries Limited, Dr Stella Okoli, at a press briefing in Lagos at the weekend commended the federal government for its prompt response as all Nigerians called for action towards controlling the situation.

Okoli said, “As parent and especially a Mother, I am deeply saddened by the problem of drug abuse and its damaging effect on our children and youths.

“We commend the Federal Government and the relevant agencies and NAFDAC for their prompt response to what is a serious matter of deep concern to all Nigerians. We also commend the Federal Ministry of Health for their prompt response as all Nigerians called for action towards controlling the situation.”
