“We have also established Small Business Support Desk (SBSD) to guide small business through registration processes and also serve as enquiry point for them on regulatory issues.

”NAFDAC has also established product registration outreach in order to provide interactive engagement and advice on documentation, labelling and other requirements, to facilitate the registration process,” he said.

He described drug counterfeiters as worse than armed robbers, adding that their activities could cause the death of many people, “while armed robbers may not kill, if one does not argue with them.’’

Earlier, NAFDAC Coordinator in Kano State, Bashir Mu’azu, said the meeting was to inform stakeholders and MSMEs, measures by NAFDAC to ease the registration process and also enhance their products.

He said the meeting afforded stakeholders the opportunity to express their minds on their challenges with a view to solving them.
