The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) is under scrutiny as Nigerians query the rampant fake products in Nigerian markets.

This comes as Nigerians, through the X platform in the last 48 hours, have reeled out their experiences with fake products across Nigerian markets.

A popular social media user, Somto Okonkwo, raised the alarm about the circulation of fake rice in the country before the yuletide season.

“Fake Rice In Circulation: Watch out for the kind of rice you’re buying this festive season in Nigeria. There are so many fake products out there. Stay safe,” he posted on the X platform.

Also, Japheth Omajuwa, a public analyst, said the country is losing lives to things that have no business killing people.

According to him, there are more incentives to break the law in Nigeria, and the system appears to punish those who stick by the rules.

“The authorities caught a man cooking meth red-handed. He had a whole lab in the heart of Lagos. He got convicted and was handed the grace of an N4 miilion fine. He’d pay that from 15 minutes of cooking.

“And everyone knows he’d be back with a bigger lab and a lot more boldness. He now knows he can afford the worst-case scenario.

“This meth case and the prevalence of fake everything from alcohol to drugs are tied to the above. Those behind these cartels know they won’t get caught, and they know that their worst-case scenario isn’t jail.

“There are more incentives to break the law, and the system appears to punish those who stick by the rules. This is a bloody tragedy in every sense. There are more incentives to break the law, and the system appears to punish those who stick by the rules. This is a bloody tragedy in every sense.

“We are losing lives to things that have no business killing people, and the perpetrators have the cover of the law”, he said on his X handle.

Recall that on Monday, the operatives of NAFDAC burst a syndicate that specialises in producing counterfeit wines, soft drinks, and other consumables in Eziukwu Market in Aba, Abia State.
