Nigeria’s professional association for registered doctors and dentists, The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) is not holding back its displeasure over the Federal government’s acceptance of Madagascar’s Covid-19 herbal cure.

According to the association’s health policy advisory statement from its President Dr. Francis Faduyile which was seconded by its General Secretary, Dr. Olumuyiwa Odusote, the body said that such move by the government is discouraging to local research efforts and it would serve as an obstacle to ongoing efforts to try and search for remedial intervention’s to use in protecting the nation’s citizenry, and that the situation only gives Nigeria a back seat in trying times like these rather than spearheading the continents race for finding a response to the pandemic.

The NMA strongly insists that the herbal syrup undergoes due diligence assessment based on scientific methods before approving its use, and also urged the government to leapfrog the revitalization of research and production activities of Nigeria’s pharmaceutical industries.
