The Ooni of Ife, Enitan Ogunwusi, has vented about Madagascar’s breakthrough on coronavirus.
The Ooni who wrote on Twitter, recalled that he appealed with Nigeria to look inward and find a natural method to cure COVID-19
Madagascar has started exporting its herbal solution to African countries.
In April, the country launched the drink after it test it on not less than 20 people.
The announcement was made by Lova Ranoromaro, the President’s Chief of Staff.
Reacting, Oba Ogunwusi said it’s a shame that Nigerians downplayed suggestions, including his, on the potency of herbal medicine.
Recall that the monarch had called out severely to the government and researchers to consider “natural elements from nature” as they find a cure for coronavirus.
On Wednesday, he tweeted: “It’s a shame. The Ooni prescribed Herbal Medicine for Nigerians, they didn’t believe him, told him he is not a doctor of what he inherited from his ancestors. Now another country took it up and also upgraded it – Madagascar.
“China as a Nation used herbal means to cure more than 70% of their COVID-19 cases. It’s on record. Going forward in this country, let us use local means to proffer local solutions to all our problems.”
