The National Association of Traditional and Complementary Medicine of Nigeria has asked the Federal Government to support its members with COVID-19 packages to help them tackle the pandemic.
Alhaji Ibrahim Nakowa, National President of the Association, made this known during a news conference in Abuja.
He boasts that the association can completely wipe out the novel virus if giving the opportunity.
Nakowa revealed that members of the association had made medicines that are prepared to treat COVID-19, which he confirmed are now with the Federal Ministry of Health, going through scientific tests.
The president of the association claimed that the only thing needed is equipment and the Federal government’s approval to dish out her medications, which he argues are in global demand.
The National Secretary of the Asociation, Dr. Bamidele, also urge the government to give traditional medicine practitioners a chance to prove their worth.
In the other news, recall that Kemi Filani News reported that the Federal Government banned 100 Nigerians for flaunting COVID-19 rules.
The 100 Nigerians have been banned from making international trips for the next six months. The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 made the announcement.
The seeming increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases are making the government take drastic actions to curb the spread and hopefully reduced the numbers of infected persons.
