The President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) Pharm. Ahmed Yakasai recently visited the multi-billion naira, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant of Fidson Pharmaceuticals in Ota, Ogun State, for a facility visit.
Yakasai, who went round the facility with his entourage along with the Fidson’s team for inspection, described the plant as a world class factory, incorporated with modern facilities for the production tablets, capsules, dry powder, liquids, cream and ointment and indeed large and massive lines of intravenous fluids.
Commending the management of Fidson for her commitment to the wellbeing of the nation and improving the quality of health of the people, he said the company is no doubt a national pride. “This is the only way I can define the love and devotion to our country by the founder of this company- Fidelis Ayebae. This is true patriotism in action and he needs to be encouraged and supported by government”.
He further stressed the need for the Federal and State Governments, non-governmental organisations and all Nigerians to patronise Fidson’s made-in-Nigeria products, based on world class standard.
The management of Fidson, ably led by the Executive Director, Operations- Pharm. Biola Adebayo, appreciated the PSN President and NEC members of the PSN for the visit. He reiterated the organisation’s commitment to manufacture quality, efficacious, safe and cost-effective drugs for the service of God and humanity.
