The Assistant Chief Regulator Officer, Investigation and Enforcement Department, NAFDAC, Lagos, Kazeem Adeniran, made the call at a two-day enforcement exercise on Monday in Ota, Ogun.
Adeniran, who said that the call was in line with the agreement reached by a tripartite committee set up in 2018, also stressed that part of the agreement was that distillers, under the Distillers and Blenders Association of Nigeria, DIBAN, should stop the production of alcohol in sachets and pet bottles of less than 200ml with effect from January 31.
He said that the Federal Ministry of Health had set up the committee in 2018, of which NAFDAC and DIBAN were members, with other stakeholders to curb abuse of alcohol, especially among the youth.
