This Pharmaceutical Park is not only going to provide jobs for pharmacists, there will be a whole lot of Nigerians that will be employed because of this park – Pharm Ignatius Anukwu (National Chairman, NAIP; Interviewed 2020)

About Pharmacity


Pharmacity – the first Indigenous Pharmaceutical Park, an intervention that strives to tackle the unmet needs for both demand and supply of medicines.

An intervention that brings in all key stakeholders including the government, academia, professionals and private sector to revolutionize indigenous drug manufacturing and reposition Nigeria to benefit from freer trade on the continent while increasing exports. This intervention tackles the existing challenges within the industry including infrastructure, regulatory policy and access to affordable and reasonable funding.

Pharmacity is a compact modern-day pharmaceutical industrial estate bringing together pharmaceutical companies of various sizes, service providers and companies providing support services to co-locate and share infrastructure. It will serve as a means to increase Nigeria’s medicine and health product manufacturing capacity and enable her to reach her full potential while ensuring strict adherence to international standards.

Pharmacity Will

the cost of production of medicine and health products leading to better profit margins.
increased competitiveness of these products in the international market, for exports, and improved foreign exchange earnings.
premium grade health products that are easily accessible and affordable for the population.
a more resilient medicine supply chain that is less vulnerable to external shocks and other eventualities, thus ensuring medicine security and sustainability in the supply chain.

“The establishment of a Pharmaceutical Park will create more jobs for Nigerians, serve as a security bait for us to secure our country and expand the economy”

– Pharm. Elijah Mohammed (Registrar PCS; Interviewed 2020)
