Mojisola Adeyeye, the Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has opened up that lawmakers threatened her for refusing to offer them bribe.

According to her, she has witnessed several anomalies as part of her job and position.
“When I came to NAFDAC, there were a lot of things that were wrong. Take oversight function or whatever that is done, I was shocked when I was told to give money, I said money for what? … money to the committee that visited us. The Health Care Services Committee of the House of Representatives,” she said on Friday during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.

She revealed that the demand came at the time the agency was battling hard to get funds, describing it as the worst day of her life.

“I said I cannot. For just the visit? I couldn’t believe my ears because it saddens me. Yes, it can be referred to as them asking for a bribe. It saddens me. This is an organisation that was bleeding profusely.
“It wasn’t taken well at all. I was threatened and I couldn’t believe that too, you are threatening me?” she stated.

She further explained that the agency has cleared debts to the tune of N3billion since she assumed office in 2017.
Speaking further, the NAFDAC boss explained that since assuming office in 2017, the agency has cleared debts of about 3 billion Naira.

Asked how funds are generated, she stated that officials rake in money from user fees and the Internally Generated Revenue.
