Dr. Stella Okoli, the Founder/Group Managing Director of Emzor Pharmaceuticals, has urged Nigerians to work together to combat the rising problem of drug abuse among youths.
She said, “We must all come together to work in harmony to collectively campaign against this social problem.”
In a press release, Okoli noted that the pharmaceutical company has been working to support Nigerian youths through the Emzor Wellness Foundation and the Chike Okoli Foundation, both of which were established to promote healthy lifestyles and entrepreneurship among the youths.
“The foundation has since trained, influenced and touched the lives of millions of youths, many of whom have graduated from its Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies and are now running their own businesses,” she said.
“Our vision is to make unlimited wellness available to all and affordable by all,” she said.
Okoli reaffirmed the company’s commitment to maintaining good manufacturing practices, stating that its track record and wide acceptance among Nigerians are based on commitment to upholding the highest professional standards possible in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
She also confirmed the reopening of the company’s liquid manufacturing plant that was recently sealed by NAFDAC.
The company’s Executive Director, Uzoma Ezeoke, explained that Emzor’s factories all have current certificates of Good Manufacturing Practice, attesting to the company’s full compliance with regulatory guidelines.
She revealed that the company’s new ultra-modern factory, which is built to WHO certification standards, is almost completed and will be inaugurated in due time.
“Our company has been a major player in the pharmaceutical sector for more than 30 years, providing high quality but affordable medicines for Nigerians.
“Our vision is to make unlimited wellness available to all and affordable by all,” Ezeoke said.
