There are complaints in Nigeria about the cost of Madagascar’s Covid-19 cure Covid Organics. Some have characterised the $170,000 cost as an expensive demand from Madagascar.
This is even when Nigeria spends much more in aid to other African countries.
Some people are looking for any and every reason not to give Nigerians the curative herbal tea called Covid Organics or CVO.
They also said it will not be cost effective to import the drug. What happened to removing or reducing import tariffs for the drug?
The Federal Government should reduce import tariffs for Covid Organics herbal tea, so Nigerian businessmen can import it the same way they import other herbal teas.
Presidential spokesman Bashir Ahmad has stated his findings that the number of new coronavirus cases in Nigeria seem to be coming down.
He also fingered Abuja and Gombe as being the possible answers and advised Nigerians to keep following NCDC rules.
This observation by Mr Ahmad comes at a time when Nigeria has imported Madagascar’s Covid Organics (CVO) cure.
We are happy to report that the advice we gave to Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control -NAFDACt, to test Madagascar’s anti-coronavirus drug has been taken.
The agency has imported some of the herbal tea to test.
Recall that Igbo Defender had earlier written an article titled, “Coronavirus Cure: What Is Stopping NAFDAC From Testing Covid Organics (CVO)?” with the url https://igbodefender.com/2020/05/02/coronavirus-cure-what-is-stopping-nafdac-from-testing-covid-organics-cvo/
Now, a shipment has been imported for trials. We want the scientific truth about Covid Organics to be made clearer if the records of its efficacy are still doubted.
We welcome the trials and hope it leads to an end to the rising cases of coronavirus infections and deaths.
We also ask that utmost care be taken to ensure that the drugs are distributed equitably to every geographical region of Nigeria.
We want to assure Nigerians that by God’s Grace, we will continue to speak truth to power on the Coronavirus issue and other issues of national concern.
God Bless NAFDAC, and the Government and good people of Nigeria.
Nigerian Political activist Femi Fani Kayode has shaded the World Health Organisation (WHO), which he described as Bill-Gates-controlled for ‘ignoring’ claims by Africans that they have the cure to the dreaded coronavirus, accusing the world body of not taking Africans seriously. Taking to his Twitter handle, Fani Kayode wrote:
Recall that both Nigeria’s Prof Maurice Iwu and the island nation of Madagascar have come out with claims of having herbal-based cures to coronavirus, while Bill Gates has pumped billions of dollars into the development of a vaccine against coronavirus.
Senegal is to start clinical trials of Madagascar’s Covid Organics (CVO) herbal tea remedy that has been credited with both preventing and curing coronavirus in Madagascar and Equatorial Guinea.
“We are moving to use the Artemisia [the main component of the CVO]. On our side. We are evaluating it scientifically. We have given green light”, said Daouda Ndiaye, head of the Senegalese scientific committee in an interview with Radio Futurs Medias, on Thursday.
“We will work on a protocol to see how to give it to Senegalese patients,” he disclosed.
Recall that the World Health Organization (WHO) recently called for clinical trials of Madagascar’s Covid Organics.
Analysts say Senegal’s President Macky Sall has shown resolute political will in the midst of pressure following his consideration of Madagascar’s Covid Organics remedy as a treatment for his countrymen.
Meanwhile Equatorial Guinea, which has already imported the remedy, has shown a 44% jump in recovery rates in 5 days.
Comoros, through its President, Azali Asoumani, has formally requested for Covid Organics. And Tanzania’s President Pombe Magufuli has already sent a plane to Madagascar to get the cure.
Nigeria should get this remedy. Nigeria loses nothing by getting one more herbal tea into this country. It is what Yorubas call agbo. NAFDAC can conduct clinical trials on it.
