FG Appoints New Acting DG for NAFDAC

Rebecca Ejifoma

The Federal Government on Thursday approved the appointment of Mr. Ademola Andrew Magbojuri as the new Acting Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

Magbojuri takes over from Mrs. Yetunde Oni, who attained the retirement age of 60 last week. She served in acting capacity for 18 months following the sack of NAFDAC's substantive DG,  Dr. Paul Orhii.

Magbojuri, who is the most senior director in NAFDAC, until this appointment, was in charge of the agency’s Training and Research Institute in Kaduna.

The new DG has served as Director of Finance and Accounts before he was redeployed to the agency’s Planning, Research and Statistics unit.
