On 06/May/2019 / In Medical News

The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, has called on Borno residents to check and verify the authenticity of products before purchase. The Coordinator of NAFDAC in Borno, Mr Nasiru Mato, made the call during a sensitization campaign tagged; “Keeping the Environment Litter Free’’ on Sunday in Maiduguri.
Mato said that the call had become imperative to prevent consumers against consumption of unwholesome foods. He also warned Borno residents to desist from indiscriminate waste disposal to promote healthy living and clean environment. 
“NAFDAC advises consumers of regulated products to comply with all labeling instructions to ensure good health, safety, and protection of the environment. “Man is indeed his environment and his environment is man. Man, therefore, influences his environment due to both his action and inactions,’’ he said. Mato added that safety could be best achieved through proper waste disposal, containment and storage of potentially toxic chemicals.(NAN)
