Nice move from the FG!
N100b to fund and support to Indigenous Pharmaceutical Manufacturers is quite encouraging because it help in the growth of the country’s economy. They should monitor how the funds are been disposed. FG should look into other sectors too.

Well, the government is obliged to fund the different sectors of commerce in the country. The pharmaceutical industry is also an important part of health sector. This is why the government must have deemed it fit to give them necessary fundings.
