Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti has joined Senator Ben Bruce and Senator Shehu Sani in reacting to the recent ban on codeine.
This is coming after the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, on Tuesday directed the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, to ban with immediate effect further issuance of permits for the importation of codeine as active pharmaceutical ingredient for cough preparations.
Seun Kuti wrote;
“Igbo has been banned since forever (unjustly) but e still dey everywhere. The reactionary ban of codeine by the FG only means drug dealers will make more money from it. It can’t affect supply.”
