The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has said that Nigeria did not order for the herbal cure developed by Madagascar.
Mustapha stated this on Thursday in Abuja, during the daily briefing on COVID-19. He said that the herbal cure was offer given to the Nigerian people by Madagascar’s president, Andry Rajoelina.
Boss said, “Nigeria did not ask for the Madagascar solution, the Madagascar government decided to airlift quantities meant for African countries.
“That of West Africa was taken to Guinea Bissau so that all the members of ECOWAS have their commodities offloaded in Guinea Bissau and that was the one I referred to that we were making arrangements to evacuate.
“But the impression out there is as if we abandoned home-grown solution and we were looking for Madagascar solution.
“We didn’t ask for it…It was taken in the spirit of African brotherly love to Guinea Bissau and we have asked our ambassador there to establish the location, the quantity and he has done that,” he said.
