THE nation’s move to achieve the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals, may become a mirage if government’s decision ordering NAFDAC operatives out of the nation’s seaports nationwide was not urgently reversed.

Equally the nation should not deliberately turn the agency into a toothless bull dog by initiating draconian policies which will in turn impact negatively on its operations and result in series of negative consequences for Nigerians.

A public affairs analyst and author, Martins Ikhilae, who made the remarks in Lagos, said the government’s decision to withdraw NAFDAC from the nation’s maritime industry was an ill-wind that will eventually do the nation and its citizens more harm than good.

Noting that the much publicised decision was ill conceived, unpatriotic, and untimely, Ikhilae said it would have negative effect on the nation’s healthcare delivery system which was currently being laboriously overhauled by the nation’s rejuvenated health boosting organ, the National Agency For Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC.
