BREAKING: President Buhari Replaces NAFDAC DG

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has replaced the director general of the National Agency for Food Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof. Moji Adeyeye with a new helmsman.

This is owing to the expiration of her tenure which was not renewed by President Buhari.

The newly-appointed DG is Dr. Monica Eimunjeze in acting capacity.

Stonix News recalled that President Buhari appointed Adeyeye in November 2017 for a five-year renewable term.

A November 17 memo by the Director of Human Resources Management, A. U. Oboli, informed units and departments of Adeyeye’s replacement.

The communication with reference number NAFDAC/ADM/SM/075 was addressed to the directors.

Oboli said in the memo that the government had appointed Dr Monica Eimunjeze as the Acting Director-General with effect from November 12.

“I am, therefore, directed to bring this development to you for information and guidance,” she added.

The new head of the agency studied Pharmacy at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria and graduated in 1986.

She obtained a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Mercer University in Atlanta, and a Master of Science (MSc) in Biotechnology, Innovation and Regulatory Science from Purdue University.

Eimunjeze has years of experience in the pharmaceutical sector.

She had her industrial exposure with GlaxoSmithKline from 1989 to 1996.

She was previously NAFDAC Director of Registration and Regulatory Affairs, Director of Drug Evaluation and Research, as well as Technical Assistant to the DG.
