Lagos State government shuts 52 pharmacies, others
Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Health, Dr. Titilayo Goncalves, disclosed this yesterday when she received the report of the task force.
She explained that the affected outlets were operating without a license, engaging unqualified persons to man and dispense drugs, selling ethical products and displaying and storing drugs in environments, which compromise their potency and integrity.
“Although some of the pharmacies visited were registered, it is disheartening to note that quite a number of them had no qualified pharmacists on duty and displayed expired drugs for sale to the public,” she said.
