NAFDAC Consumer Safety Club (NCSC)
The NAFDAC Consumer Safety Club (NCSC) is a public enlightenment and sensitization platform of the Agency used in the fight against fake/substandard regulated products, and to promote the ‘quality culture’ in Nigerian youth. The objectives of NCSC are to:
- Reorient the youth and redirect their energy away from social vices and anti-social behavior towards healthy habits and meaningful development.
- Serve as a platform for the promotion of NAFDAC’s fight against fake drugs and other substandard products.
- Use members as foot soldiers for the reinvigoration of NAFDAC’s anti-drug abuse and misuse campaign.
- Assist with information flow on NAFDAC’s regulatory activities.
To achieve the afore-mentioned objectives, annual NCSC competitions are organized for member schoolsat the State, Zonal and National levels in both junior secondary and senior secondary categories, and winners are awarded prizes.
State level examinations are conducted to identify both state level and zonal level winners. First place winners from the zonal examinations in both categories are invited to the headquarters (Abuja) to participate in a grand finale which is in the form of a quiz competition. The grand winners are recognized and honored at a National Award Ceremony.
Schools interested in becoming members of the NCSC can apply in writing to the office of the Director-General (NAFDAC). If approved, the schools will then be registered to participate in the club’s activities.
