Madagascar herbal drug: You lack leadership – PDP blasts Buhari over importation of COVID-19 cure

PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in an interview with DAILY POST said the federal government failed to show leadership by opting to import COVID-19 cure from Madagascar.

Also, recall that the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire had confirmed that plants used in producing Madagascar’s COVID-19 cure can be found in Nigeria.

Ehanire explained that when the herbal drug arrives in Nigeria, it will be subjected to analysis by the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD).

According to Ologbondiyan: “Our party the PDP has always canvassed for homegrown approaches to the issue of COVID-19.

“We have demanded that the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 in conjunction with the NCDC should ensure that our medical doctors, Epidemiologists, those in the orthodox and unorthodox medicals are supported in seeking homegrown solutions, that has been the opposition of the PDP.

“We have herbs locally which can be used for the purpose of treating COVID-19 and we are now going ahead to import the same from Madagascar. This is strange and does not show leadership on the side of the government
