The Ooni of Ife, Enitan Ogunwusi, has reacted angrily to Madagascar’s breakthrough on coronavirus.
The monarch took to Twitter to register his disappointment over the failure of the Nigerian Government to think inwards and find a natural cure to the deadly diseases as he had earlier suggested.
In his reaction, Oba Ogunwusi noted that it’s a shame that Nigerians downplayed suggestions, including his, on the potency of herbal medicine.
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.
On his official Twitter handle, @OoniAdimulaIfe, Ooni said
” 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.”
Reacall that On March 30, the monarch charged federal, state governments and researchers to consider “natural elements from nature” as they find a cure for coronavirus.
He had advised, “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.”
Already, Tanzania and Comoros have ordered the importation of the Madagascar tonic.
Last weekend, the island shipped the drink to Guinea-Bissau.
