China apologises to Nigeria over fake drugs

China apologises to Nigeria over fake drugs Abuja: China has formerly apologised to Nigeria for alleged export of fake drugs by some Chinese firms to that country and assured to take punitive action against those involved in the nexus.

At a meeting of global coalition partners against fake drugs manufacture, importation and exportation in Abuja, Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria Rong Yansong regretted the exportation of fake drugs to the West African country by some Chinese nationals and industries.

"I wish to use this opportunity to apologise to Nigeria for the exportation of such products to the country. The Chinese government would ensure punishment to firms exporting fake drug to Nigeria," he said.

The apology comes amid rampant cases of alleged fake drug imports, triggering an intense campaign by the Nigerian anti-fake drug agency against unwholesome drugs.
