The reiterated that health is wealth, stressing that Nigerians suffer untold hardship as a result of consuming most fake and expired goods which seem relatively cheap compared to that of original ones.

According to him, fake drugs have caused many illnesses and death in the society at large. “Adulterated industrial foods like powdered and liquid milk, tobacco, tin and sachet tomatoes, canned drinks, palm oil, vegetable oil, sachet water and pirated CD plates, books, automobiles, and plagiarism are not left out.

He lamented: “While some people gain their selfish luxurious life style at the expense of other’s collective happiness, many risk the health of many others for their own gains. The end justifies the means syndrome seems to be the order of the day. Humanity is really facing inhumane torment in the hands of the bad conscience of these evil doers who try to manipulate nature in order to turn normalcy into socio-economic and cultural malady.
