NAFDAC to lift ban on sachet alcohol 

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, have resolved to lift the ban on the sale and consumption of sachet alcoholic beverages.

Deputy Spokesman of the House, Philip Agbese stated this while briefing Journalists in Abuja on Friday.

NAFDAC had earlier banned the production of beverages in small sachets and bottles for reasons not unconnected with the prevailing cases of drug abuse in the country, especially by some young Nigerians.

Following a motion moved on the floor of the Green Chamber by Reps Paschal Agbodike and Philip Agbese, during a plenary session.

According to Agbese, the resolution to temporarily lift the ban was arrived at after a meeting between the House Committee and NAFDAC officials.

He said “We all agreed at the meeting that at a certain stage in history, we must move on with our counterparts across the globe. Nevertheless, at the moment, we agreed with NAFDAC that there would be a temporary lifting of the ban until the economy regains its strength.”
