The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, (NAFDAC) on Sunday warned Nigerian men to desist from using performance-enhancing substances, known as “aphrodisiac”, in a bid to impress their female partners.

This was contained in a statement for the Christmas and New Year goodwill message to Nigerians by the Director General of NAFDAC, Prof. Moji Adeyeye.

The statement was released by the agency’s resident media consultant, Mr Olusayo Akintola, and made available to NAN.

Adeyeye denounced the preponderance of performance-enhancing drugs, otherwise known as ‘’Manpower’’ in the local parlance, in the Nigeria market.

He said that most of the performance-enhancing drugs aren’t registered with NAFDAC, adding that some of the drugs were smuggled into Nigeria.

He said, “If they were registered, the producers and peddlers wouldn’t get it to the supermarkets, social media platforms and on the streets.

“Many men have died using such drugs and their relatives would blame their death on some imaginary witches in the village. Some of the producers of these drugs will claim they have no side effects.

“Majority of these products did not go through the approval process of the agency, the agency will not relent in running after the peddlers of such dangerous drugs until they’re brought to book for violating the regulations.”

Adeyeye said that most human beings have the need for intimacy and for a healthy sexual life and this determines their overall wellbeing.
