FRAUD: CSO Calls For Investigation Of NAFDAC

By Jerry Emmanson, Abuja

As revelations emerge concerning alleged acts of corruption and financial mismanagement at the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control ( NAFDAC), Civil Societies have called on the Federal government to look into the allegation and prosecute those found wanting.

In a statement signed by the National President of the Nigerians United Against Corruption (NUAC), Comrade Ola Oluwasanmi the group called on the presidency and all anti-graft agencies to look into the matter with urgency so as to save the nation from disaster.
Oluwasanmi in the statement said “the nation at a time as this should be ready to investigate traces of corruption, as it will certainly dent the nation’s image which has already made enough negative fame from the past administrations.”
The group further called on the presidency to ensure that an investigation be initiated into the affairs of the Commission and all parties involved be made to serve the resultant consequences without sparing anyone to serve as as deterrent to others.
He said,  ” issues bordering on a monitoring agency as NAFDAC should not be treated with kids gloves as millions of Nigerian lives depend on this establishment and as such not to allow fraudulent to run it aground.”

According to Ola Oluwasanmi, the allegations are too grievous to be ignored and they will certainly stain the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari who has vowed to stamp out corruption and has already started with the prosecution of former governors Lamido and Nyako”.
The group has however commended the president for the recent gaint strides in the fight against corruption which has already began reaping benefits as well as put intending looters in check
