The Unveiling Of COVID-19 Herbal Syrup In Ogun Disorganized By NAFDAC

Paul Oni, a herbal professional was scheduled to showcase at a press conference the herbal syrup called “Oxibiotics” at Centenary Hall, Ake Abeokuta where the incident occurred.

Paul, who is a retired military officer and Managing Director of Peculiar Projects Nigeria Limited, explained that he produced just a few numbers of syrup to showcase to journalists and not in large quantities for sale.

Apart from disorganizing the programme, the agency officials went ahead to inspect the product’s factory and sealed it indefinitely.

An Official of NAFDAC( National Agency For Food And Drug Administration And Control) speaking with newsmen in Abeokuta said the incident occurred and the event was stopped because the product had not been scientifically certified and the release of the herbs was without the consent of the agency.

He said:

“The producer is a client. He knows the procedures having secured NAFDAC number for some of his products on two different occasions. But this product, in particular, has not passed through the NAFDAC processes”.

“Besides, he breached the

advertisement control policy by advertising the product. And he deliberately did not invite us to the programme. If truly it’s a certified product, he would have invited us”.

“So, we just got the hint this morning; that’s why we went there to stop the programme. We equally went to his factory and sealed the factory.”

Following the reason for the incident, Paul denied by-passing NAFDAC’s procedure in the releasing of the anti virus syrup BUT that it was only to raise funds and seek support to be able to undergo the process of NAFDAC.
