LAGOS: PCN Seals 268 Pharmacy’s

According to the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria it said it has sealed 268 pharmacies in Lagos for violations that vary from not registering with the authority, not renewing their registration and other infringements.

Pharm. Elijah Mohammed, PCN Registrar said:

“The national enforcement team of the PCN has been on the ground in Lagos State since August 10, 2020, and visited various parts of the state. Compliance with the guidance on COVID-19 was monitored; a good number of registered pharmacies complied with the guidelines while others were advised to comply.

“At the end of the exercise, a total of 565 premises were visited; 268 premises were sealed for not registering or renewing their premises  permit as required by law or infringing on any other provision of the law. 15 premises were also issued compliance directives for lapses that can easily be corrected.

“The PCN suspended its enforcement activities due to the lockdown but had to resume when it was discovered that illegal medicines sales outlets with attendant unwholesome practice are springing up due to the exemption from the lockdown given to the pharmaceutical sector to provide pharmaceutical services to the general public during the lockdown.”

He also said that the exercise is in fulfilment of the councils mandate.
