Today, I visited Oba in Idemili South LGA to perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the Coordinated Wholesale Centre (CWC) for Pharmaceutical and allied products in accordance with the National Drug Distribution Guidelines (NDDG).
The CWC is a far-reaching effort by the Federal Ministry of Health and her Drug Regulatory Agencies to address the chaotic drug distribution system in Nigeria.
CWC Oba will serve as an alternative centre for the relocation of the unacceptable open drug markets in the State. This initiative is also in line with our administration’s plan to establish a drug manufacturer’s hub for the production of safe and quality drugs that are efficacious.
Sterling Bank, the project financiers, have made commitments to providing all funding support that will ensure that this project is delivered in 24 months. To the promoters, the CWC and her parent body the Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria (PCN), we are deeply delighted for the working partnership.
We have received even greater assurances of immense cooperation from the host community – ndị Oba.
May Anambra continue to succeed.
