    The Kogi state Patent medicine dealers association PMDA has called on relevant authority to call the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria,PCN to order and tell them to respect a court order stopping them from indiscriminate sealing patent medicine stores.

    Recall that the PCN had last week sealed 311 premises and medicine stores for infractions ranging from not registering their premises and not obtaining operating licences.

    Counsel to the parent medicine dealers association, Barrister O E Amoke said that the action of PCN in sealing the medicine dealers stores was a flagrant disobedience to a subsisting court order that the status quo should be maintained pending the determination of the suit instituted against them.

    He condemned in strong terms the sealing of several premises belongs to members of the association.

    According to him,”a federal high court sitting in Lokoja which was also combined with that of Akure has issued an order barring PCN from carrying out any enforcement pending the determination of the substantial suit.

    “We are not in a banana republic,this is supposed to be a country where democracy operates,we should be seeing as obeying court orders.

    We are calling of the Federal government and other relevant authorities concerned to intervene and call PCN to order unless they want to claim being above the law of the land” he added

    Amoke said that the medicine dealers have responsibilities and were doing legitimate businesses to feed their families and now they have been thrown in to joblessness and the social implications are better imagined.
