MAN, represented by its director-general, Segun Ajayi-Kadir, suggests implementing access control measures such as licensed liquor stores, age verification for purchasers, and more rigorous enforcement by law enforcement agencies, as well as regulatory bodies like NAFDAC and FCCPC.

Expressing concerns about the potential negative impact of the ban on local investors and the Nigerian economy, MAN emphasizes the necessity for evidence-based policymaking. The association calls for government support in implementing stricter regulations as an alternative to an outright ban.
