pharmacy*As Kolade bemoans political class for ‘siege’ on best practices

Industrial pharmacists in the country have again appealed to the Federal Government to give the pharmaceutical sector a priority in allocation of scarce foreign exchange.

The pharmacists, under the aegis of Association of Industrial Pharmacists of Nigeria (NAIP), at their 19th national conference in Lagos, said that the critical sector of the health industry is already running short of pharmaceutical products and raw materials, which might put the entire health sector in dire strait by June this year.

Meanwhile, Former Nigerian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade, has bemoaned the Nigerian system, which he described as “hostile” and a “siege” upon the professional class and the value system.
