The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has discredited the report linking the congestion at the ports to its e-certification processes. “In the past, NAFDAC documents were physically scanned and attached to the Central Bank of Nigeria Form M platform. As a result, many importers who were used to utilising unapproved licenses could not process their Form M,” NAFDAC explained. “It is, therefore, misleading, deceptive and baseless for any importer or agent alluding the congestion at the Ports to the e-certification processes of NAFDAC. Indeed, this is a means of perpetrating evil and attempt to continuing in dirty and unscrupulous procedures in the clearance of regulated products.
