Lagos State Taskforce on Counterfeit, Fake Drugs and Unwholesome Processed Foods have sealed no fewer than 52 pharmacies, patent medicine shops, and unlicensed premises in Oshodi-Isolo, Alimosho and Somolu councils for illegal operation, among others.
Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr. Titilayo Goncalves, disclosed this yesterday when she received the report of the task force.
She explained that the affected outlets were operating without a license, engaging unqualified persons to man and dispense drugs, selling ethical products and displaying and storing drugs in environments, which compromise their potency and integrity.
“Although some of the pharmacies visited were registered, it is disheartening to note that quite a number of them had no qualified pharmacists on duty and displayed expired drugs for sale to the public,” she said.
