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:
Madagascar claims to have a herbal- based cure for Covid 19 & Prof. Maurice Iwu of Nigeria has made a similar claim. Why is it that the @BillGates-controlled @WHO refuses to take Africans seriously even where some of these “cures” have yielded appreciable positive results?
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.
Indians are the market dominant minority of Madagascar. They control most of the Madagascar’s commerce. They remind me of the Igbos of Nigeria, who control most of Nigeria’s commerce. Or the Chinese minority in Malaysia who control Malaysia’s commerce.
But in the case if the Igbos, they are a majority. In every Nigerian state outside Igbo Land, after the indigenes, the other major population are the Igbos.
Market dominant groups like the Igbos in Nigeria and the Indians in Madagascar have to actively invest in philanthropy, to create goodwill.
This is because it has been proven that such economic status breeds a lot of resentment among others, rightly or wrongly.
