Season Of Fines: NAFDAC Slams Guinness Nigeria With N1 Billion Fine

 

Guiness Nigeria is the second company to be slammed with a gargantuan fine by a FG parastatal

 

And the season of fines continue.

Barely a month after MTN was slammed with N1.04 trillion fine by the NCC, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has fined Guinness Nigeria Plc, N1 Billion for violating laid down rules.
Punch reports that NAFDAC accused Guinness of allegedly revalidating expired products without authorisation and supervision, and exposing its raw materials to rodents.
An excerpt of the letter from NAFDAC, which was obtained from Punch, reads

“In view of the above, you are further required to take the following actions: disclosure of all your warehouses in the country and submission of inventory level of the stock thereof; submit a written voluntary consent of forfeiture for destruction of the expired and revalidated raw materials discovered in your warehouse; and submit a notarised undertaking to comply with all the guidelines, rules, regulations and enactments of the agency, and to refrain from any future violations.”

At this rate, the FG will have more than enough to make up for dwindling oil prices o…hehehe. Do leave your comments.
