Ooni Of Ife Blasts Nigerians As Madagascar Finds Coronavirus Cure Using Herbs

The Ooni of Ife, Enitan Ogunwusi, has reacted angrily to Madagascar’s breakthrough on coronavirus.

The monarch exploded on Twitter as he recalled his appeal to Nigeria to use natural methods to find a cure.

Madagascar has started exporting its herbal solution to African countries.

It launched the drink in April, after weeks of testing on no fewer than 20 people.

The President’s Chief of Staff, Lova Ranoromaro, made the announcement.

In his reaction, Oba Ogunwusi said it’s a shame that Nigerians downplayed suggestions, including his, on the potency of herbal medicine.

On March 30, the monarch charged federal, state governments 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.”

Tanzania and Comoros have ordered the importation of the Madagascar tonic.

Last weekend, the island shipped the drink to Guinea-Bissau.

President Umaro Sissoco Embalo was at the airport to oversee the cargo.
