    Abstract
    The Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), the Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPP) and the Pharmacists Council of Nigeria (PCN) have functions that tend to influence business life, aimed at protecting and promoting healthy relationship during business transactions.  In this regards, the objectives and the extent of this activity may differ. The Pharmacists Council may be more exerting than the CAC because its activities relate largely to health. This, however, does not mean that its practices are not business related. This article emphasizes that the activities of the CAC can be strengthened if it follows the pattern of the Pharmacists’ Council (PCN, 2015).
