$10000 dollar bounty on fake anti-malarial distributors
He said: “Today, on behalf of the US government, I would like to announce the launch of the ‘Make a Difference’ hotline and reward programme. We are offering up to $10,000 – approximately N2 million – to anyone who reports information concerning the illegal distribution of stolen or falsified anti-malaria medication in Nigeria.
He stressed that counterfeit malaria drugs worsen malaria burden and suppress the ability of Nigeria’s pharmaceutical industry to develop, innovate, and create jobs.
He, therefore, urged Nigerians to be vigilant in reporting incidents of stolen or counterfeit medicines to relevant authorities.
“The ‘Make a Difference’ programme will also inform the public about the dangers of using falsified and stolen medications, including how to avoid such medicines. Nigerians can make a difference in their communities by reporting individuals involved in the manufacturing, distribution, or sale of these illicit and dangerous products.
“If you have information on these networks, please call the toll free hotline at 07080601816. Or, you can send an email to MADMalariaHotline@usaid.gov. All information will be kept confidential, but if you want to collect a reward, we will need to know who you are,” he said.
