Over 70 Per Cent Of Products Exported From Nigeria Are Rejected-NAFDAC




The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has said that most products exported from Nigeria are rejected abroad.

This disclosure was made by NAFDAC’s Director-General, Mojisola Adeyeye, while commissioning the agency’s new office complex at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

Adeyeye said these rejections lead to huge financial losses to the exporters and the country at large.

She  said;

“Over 70 per cent of the products that leave our ports get rejected. Considering the money spent on getting those products out of the country, it is a double loss for both the exporter and the country.”

The NAFDAC boss also added that collaboration between NAFDAC and other agencies could help tackle export and import issues the country faces.
