Worried by the rising menace of drug abuse including self-medication which has continued to impact Nigerians socioeconomically, environmentally and health-wise, Procold, Nigeria’s reliable brand and medicine for colds, flu and catarrh launched the #Originalmovement campaign aimed at creating awareness on safe use of drugs.
As the #Originalmovement gets underway, Procold initiates a bold move in collaboration with the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria as its long-term partner to encourage all Nigerians to take the authentic and best quality medicines by entering into a formal agreement, through establishing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by both parties at the 95th Annual National Conference of PSN held in Jos, Plateau state capital, recently.
Speaking at the event, Marvin Lucky, Head of Brands at Procold for West Africa, stated that “for more than 35 years, every household in Nigeria has relied on Procold as the trusted and reliable medicine for colds, flu and catarrh. The endorsement of Procold by the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) is a testament of what the brand is known for. As the number one brand for cold, flu and catarrh in Nigeria, this collaboration becomes another milestone for the commitment to always provide the best quality product the Nigerian public.”
Responding, Professor Cyril Usifoh, President, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) said Procold has been a leading and established brand among the cold remedies in Nigeria for over three decades.
He also affirmed that the leadership of PSN is excited that Procold has been stepping out, to not only providing good quality product to every Nigerian family for years, but also embarking on health education and promotion for Nigerians as part of its corporate social responsibility.
The PSN boss further stated that the Society is very proud to be associated with brand at a time that all pharmaceutical stakeholders need to brace up to ensure medicine security in Nigeria.
The endorsement is therefore a commitment on the part of PSN to always advocate for Nigerians’ health through access to best quality medicines,” he stressed.
Also at the occasion include former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), who served as the chairman, Plateau State Governor Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong as the chief host, Executive Chairman of NDLEA, Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa (rtd), and a host of others.
