Madagascar asks Nigeria to pay N78.2m for COVID-19 herbal remedy

Nigerian has been asked by the Republic of Madagascar to pay the sum of N78.2 million for the COVID-19 herbal remedy it received.

“For our consignments in Guinea Bissau, Madagascar has asked Nigeria to pay over €170,000. We have received the invoice because the African country has made us to realise that the drugs are not being given out free.

“We are being asked to pay for the drugs yet to be validated. Since the AU directed the supply of the drugs to African countries, we may have no choice than to pay for it.

This payment may, however, be one-off because mass importation of the drugs from Madagascar will not be cost-effective. By the time we take into account the cost of freight, the amount will be too high,” a source told the Nation.
