We cannot guarantee the efficacy of herbal drugs – NAFDAC.

The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, says it cannot guarantee the efficacy of herbal drugs and products being sold across the country.

The Agency said the certification number issued to some herbal drugs and products was only to confirm that these products were fit for human consumption.

NAFDAC’s Director of Special Duties, Abubakar Jimoh, made this known to journalists, when the agency was visited in Minna.

Jimoh said the NAFDAC number issued for some of these herbal products was only for one year after which the manufacturers would apply for recertification.

However, NAFDAC, said it was working with another organization that could eventually lead to the issuance of ‘all clear certificates for some of these herbal products’.
