THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) Mojisola Adeyeye has said over 70 per cent of food exported from Nigeria are rejected abroad due the poor state of export trade facilitation for regulated products leaving the country
Adeyeye stated this at the official commissioning of the New NAFDAC Office complex at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, according to a statement released on Sunday, May 21, by the agency’s media consultant, Sayo Akintola.
The NAFDAC DG assured that the incessant rejection of food exports from Nigeria in some European countries and the United States of America will be addressed.
She said there was a need to strengthen collaboration between NAFDAC and related agencies in other countries at the ports.
The NAFDAC boss called for the cooperation of stakeholders and the general public to rid the country of hazardous pesticides.
