National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has approved the first indigenous alternative herbal supplements to vaccines and antibiotics for poultry in Nigeria.

The herbal supplements provided succor to 1,468 farm centers in Nigeria that were faced with threats from various diseases affecting their birds on the farms.

The co-founder and managing director of Ehibaghe Organic System, manufacturer of the herbal product, Adedeji Babatunde, who announced this on Tuesday in a press statement in Calabar, Cross River State, stated that the management of the company is grateful to NAFDAC for believing in the supplements by granting them approval to be legally recognized to serve as an alternative to vaccines for poultry in Nigeria.

Adedeji further explained that over the years, the health of birds and the productive status of farms that patronize the supplements have drastically improved due to reduced cases of sickness.

The managing director assured that the company would expand its product to enable it to cater more to many farms in Nigeria in a few months after it is officially launched.
