The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has hit a massive achievement for its country as it has been listed as a test site for chemicals associated with weapons of destruction, by the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) laboratory designation.

OPCW has chosen Nigeria laboratory alongside Kenya to test all chemicals associated with weapons of destruction, both biological and chemical in NAFDAC Laboratory.

According to the statement, experts from the OPCW visited NAFDAC’s central laboratory in Oshodi, Lagos for inspection and assessment of facilities to be deployed for the job.

In a statement by Sayo Akintola, the resident media consultant to NAFDAC, this feat was due to massive investment by the government to upgrade agency laboratories.

The NAFDAC Director General, Professor Mojisola Adeyeye, stated, “We have been on this for about four years now, except for the COVID-19 period which really affected activities.

 “We are going on proficiency testing, and we have gone from ‘participation’ to ‘very good’, which is the highest level in OPCW assessment.”

The NAFDAC boss said experts from The Hague and Helsinki on inspection of the agency’s facilities and readiness were overwhelmed by the commitment of the agency and the National Authority for Chemical and Biological Weapons Convention (NAC&BWC) in Nigeria, and the Federal Government to the project.

 “Nigeria will cover West Africa and some parts of Africa. Wherever there are skirmishes or the use of weapons, it might not only be a war situation, but the tendency also that there could be an explosive somewhere, we could be invited to sample those things and then test for the possibility of using harmful chemicals that could be lethal to people. She stated.
