The House of Representatives Committee on Healthcare Services carried out an oversight exercise on the budget implementation and performance of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control NAFDAC.
The committee was led by the Committee Chairman, Yusuf-Tanko Sununu, to the NAFDAC Headquarters in Abuja.
During the oversight exercise, Sununu expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of execution of contracts by the agency.
He said the committee would interface with all the procurement agencies and other relevant committees to look into bureaucratic bottlenecks involved in procurement processes as related to NAFDAC.
Earlier, the NAFDAC Director-General, Moji Adeyeye, while analysing the agency’s budget performance between 2020 and June 2021, noted that the future of the agency was somehow blink before she came in in 2017.
