A director of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Dr Monica Eimunjeze, has taken over as Acting Director-General of the agency.
This is following the expiration of the tenure of Professor Mojisola Adeyeye as the DG of the agency.
A senior staff in the agency, who craved anonymity, confirmed this to our correspondent on Thursday evening.
The source said, “The most senior director, Monica, took over. But we have not had a meeting with her because it happened this evening.”
Efforts to reach the agency’s Resident Media Consultant, Sayo Akintola, on the development proved abortive as he did not take his calls or respond to the text message sent to him as of the time of filing this report.
Adeyeye was appointed the DG of NAFDAC on November 3, 2017, by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
