Kano State Ministry of Health Task Force Committee on Counterfeit, Fake, Substandard Drugs and Unwholesome Processed Foods
has on Wednesday confiscated expired drugs worth N6.4million at Enugu Road, Sabon Gari, in Kano.

The committee also intercepted 24 cartons of expired dates, assorted expired drugs and 2 cartons of expired biscuits valued at over N1million at Muhammadu Abubakar Rimi market.

Receiving the items today ( Thursday) from the Task Force Chairman, Pharm. Gali Sule, Commissioner of Health, Dr. Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, commended the members of the Committee for their determination to rid the state of counterfeit, fake drugs and unwholesome processed foods.

Dr. Tsanyawa in a statement by the ministry’s public relations officer Hadiza Mustapha Namadi, reiterated the full support of the government for the success of the very important assignment, noting that if the items were not intercepted, they would have been subsequently consumed by the unsuspecting public leading to severe health consequences.

The Commissioner also urged the general public to also compliment the effort of the government by supplying useful information to the committee.
