National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) says it is working to ensure that Nigeria’s pharmaceutical sector drives socio-economic development in the country. The Director-General (DG) of NIPRD, Dr. Obi Adigwe, made this known on Tuesday in Abuja. He said “we want to ensure that the pharma sector begins to kickstart socio-economic development in Nigeria, and we have started to do that. “NIPRD is the agency articulating pharma sector discussions on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) agreement. “Our input contributed to the reasons why Mr. President signed that agreement.” Adigwe said that NIPRD planned to control a majority of the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical market in Africa. He added that Nigeria was endowed with good climatic conditions and numerous natural plants that could translate into medicinal and economic values, noting that NIPRD had already developed several pharmaceutical products that would impact positively on the health sector when they got to the market.
