The Senate President said this at the public hearing on a Bill for an Act to Amend the Counterfeit and Fake Drugs and unwholesome processed Foods Act.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has revealed that the Senate will come up with a bill that will proffer a life jail term for individuals who sell and manufacture fake drugs.
Saraki said “In 2008, thousands of Nigerian children started taking a teething medicine that contained toxic chemicals. By February 2009 over 90 Nigeria babies had died from consuming the mixture. This is despicable and to say the least unacceptable.”
He said the move by the lawmakers will ensure that those found guilty will pay a N2m fine.
