In appreciation of its immense contribution to pharmacy profession in Nigeria, the Phamatex Group has been honoured with an award of excellence by the Association of Community Pharmacists of Nigeria (ACPN).
Presenting the award during the association’s 37th Annual National Conference held on 6 July 2018, at SIO Events Centre, Benin City, Edo State, Pharm. (Dr) Albert Kelong Alkali, immediate past national chairman of ACPN applauded the pharmaceutical company for its consistent support of community pharmacists over the years.
Receiving the award, Prince Christopher Obuora Nebe, chairman, Phamatex Group, disclosed that although the recognition came as a surprise to him, he had always held the ACPN in high esteem.
He remarked further that it was even more heartwarming that such an honour was coming to the company at a time the pharma industry was recovering from the economic recession that almost crippled the country.
Phamatex Group, the exclusive agent to Hovid Drugs in Nigeria, has been at the vanguard of sponsors who have shown unflinching support towards ACPN conference in the last one decade.
After being the sole agent to Hovid and relying heavily on imported pharmaceuticals in the last 30 years, the company has opened a state-of-the-art factory in the heart of Amuwo-Odofin area of Lagos.
