NAFDAC Warns Nigerians Against Use Of Performance-enhancing Drugs

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, (NAFDAC) has urged Nigerian men to desist from using performance-enhancing substances, known as “aphrodisiac”, in order to impress their female partners.

The is contained in a statement for the Christmas and New year goodwill message to Nigerians by the the Director General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye.

The statement was released to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday by the agency’s resident media consultant, Mr Olusayo Akintola.

Adeyeye decried the preponderance of performance-enhancing drugs, otherwise known as ‘’Manpower’’ in the local parlance, in the Nigeria market.

According to Adeyeye, most of the performance-enhancing drugs are not registered with NAFDAC, and that some of them were smuggled into the country.

“If they were registered, the producers and peddlers would not get it to the supermarkets, social media platforms and on the streets.

“Many men have died using such drugs and their relatives would blame their death on some imaginary witches in the village. Some of the producers of these drugs will claim they have no side effect.

“Majority of these products did not go through the approval process of the agency, the agency will not relent in running after the peddlers of such dangerous drugs until they are brought to book for violating the regulations,” Adeyeye said.
