Speaking at the ceremony, the governor said the administration has achieved a lot in the area of fixing basic infrastructure and bringing governance closer to the people.

He, however, explained that the government still has a lot of grounds to cover.

“We have delivered quite much, particularly in basic amenities and social infrastructure that were hitherto lacking.

“But we still have huge grounds to cover. So, it is no time for full blown politics. We must keep our eyes on the ball, which is service to the people of Kwara State who have entrusted us with their mandate,” the Governor told three new commissioners after their inauguration Wednesday evening.

The exercise, NAFDAC said, became necessary in view of the highly unregulated products which posed inherent danger to the health of consumers.

NAFDAC’s Director-General, Professor Mojisola Adeyeye, made this known at a press briefing on the occasion of flagoff of the planned action on Wednesday in Abuja.

She insisted that substandard products were prevalent in all the states of the federation, adding that the menace had reached an alarming stage that needed the agency’s prompt action.
