Reps probe NAFDAC’s ban on small sachet and bottled beverages production 

The House of Representatives mandated its committee on the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to investigate the ban imposed on the production of beverages in sachets and small bottles in Nigeria by the agency in a plenary session on Wednesday. 

The motion, moved by members Paschal Agbodike and Philip Agbese, addressed concerns surrounding the ban initiated by NAFDAC in January this year.  

The ban was implemented due to the increasing cases of drug abuse, particularly among young Nigerians.
