PWDAN urges FG to establish more petrochemical industries

Categories : Publications

Pharmaceutical Wholesalers and Distributors Association of Nigeria (PWDAN) has urged the Federal Government to focus on building more petrochemical industries to support the local manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in the country.
The association complained that the country’s import dependency on pharmaceuticals is plunging it into a scarcity risk, especially with the existence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at a press conference to herald the inauguration of the association, in Lagos, yesterday, Chairman PWDAN, Ernest Okafor, also decried the dearth of digitalised supply chains for pharmaceuticals, adding that there was a proliferation of unethical drug supply in the country.
