Dr Abubakar Jimoh, the Spokesperson of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), says Mr Ademola Magbojuri has taken over from Mrs Yetunde Oni as Acting Director-General (DG).
Jimoh disclosed this while reacting to the conflicting reports in the media over the retirement of Oni in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Abuja.
He explained that the immediate past acting director-general reached the retirement age of 60 years on Sept. 21, and Federal Government directed that the most senior director in the agency takes charge.
He said that Magbojuri, who would pilot the affairs of NAFDAC until a substantive D-G is appointed, had received handing over notes on Friday.
Magbojuri, until this appointment, was in charge of NAFDAC’s training and research institute in Kaduna.
