NAFDAC, FCCPC To Repudiate Sex Enhancing Performance Products

The drugs and foods regulatory bodies would soon eliminate all uncertified sex enhancing performance products in circulation across the state.

This is in response to the yearnings of the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) who allegedly said that sex enhancing related products are responsible for break-up in marriages and relationships.

Although the group failed to explain to the general public how it has affected marriages and relationships negatively or point out the victims of sedatives.

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria also directed relevant authorities to protect the victims of such products.

Hear him;  “We are urging you (media) to sensitise the Federal Government’s agencies responsible for the protection of the rights of Nigerian Consumers to wake up from slumber and save Nigerians from abuses and violations of the legal and constitutionally protected Rights especially in the face of what looks like a deluge of KAYANMATA, and many other unverified and unscientific products that are sold both online and in the traditional market places in which citizens are deceived into believing in the efficacious effects of those products to enhance their sexual lifestyle.

“HURIWA is worried that the seemingly growing global demand for sex-related products and increasing awareness of sexual wellness are spurring a boom in the global sex industry amid rising demand for lingerie, contraceptives, condoms, lubricants, sex toys, etc..

“HURIWA shares the same observation with a certain writer who wrote that despite its conservative culture and proclivity to avoid sexual matters, Nigeria’s sex industry is evolving just as fast. Also, this writer says that the sexual wellness market is dominated by condoms, pills and sex toys, but there is a significant niche that exists outside these, a world of herbs and spices that serve as sexual enhancers.

“HURIWA is calling on relevant regulatory agencies to wake up from slumber and protect vulnerable Nigerians from products such as sexual enhancers from being duped especially if these products are yet to be authenticated and accredited. Agencies such as the Federal Competition and Consumer Rights Commission formerly identified as the Consumer Protection Council and NAFDAC are the two leading regulatory authorities that ought to stop deceptive advertisements of sexual wellness and enhancement products that have flooded the airwaves and online/social media and wreaking domestic havoc and destabilising marriages and relationships,” he said.
