The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 pandemic, Boss Mustapha has denied knowledge of Madagascar demanding 170,000 Euros from the Federal Government for herbal drugs which arrived the country days ago.
Mustapha who reacted to claim of the Nigerian government being asked to pay €170,000 for the Madagascar herbal mixture delivered to President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday May 16, by the visiting President of Guinea Bissau Umaro Sissoco Embalo, said same mixture was taken to other African countries without an invoice.
According to him, when he took delivery of the sealed herbal mixture, he was not handed an invoice, which would have indicated if there was a cost.
“In terms of the question of whether it comes with a cost. It was handed to me without an invoice so I assume it doesn’t come with a cost.
“That’s my assumption. For that, I think the Madagascar issue and the Chinese issue should be laid to rest.
“I think we have said repeatedly hear that we did not ask for the Madagascar consignment, it was given by the government of Madagascar to African countries as their contribution to wanting to find solution to the COVID-19 pandemic and we have repeatedly said our consignment and those of West African countries, was dropped off at Guinea Bissau and that we were making arrangements to go and airlift it.
“As God would have it, the President of Guinea Bissau decided to visit our President last Saturday and when he was coming, he came with our consignment of five cartons and those five cartons were delivered to me yesterday in the evening, sealed, without a bottle out of it.
“I’m going to engage the Minister of Health who has the responsibility of validation, through his institutions that are chartered by law to do that.
“The President was upfront with that even when he took delivery of it from the President of Guinea Bissau.
“He said it quite clear of what we are going to do with the consignment would be guided by science, under the processes of validation, we’ll now know where to go.”
The SGF who further disclosed that the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the weaknesses in all systems of the world, even of the so-called superpowers, stated that it would be a huge mistake for Nigerians to desire to go back to their old ways.
“If we do not learn anything from COVID-19 and build institutions that will be enduring and sustainable, we would have failed the next generation.
“Life after COVID-19 will not be our normal type of life again. COVID-19 has come and it has disrupted everything you know as normal and the benefit of that distraction is that we will begin to put on our thinking cap and begin to address issues differently because it has exposed the weaknesses in all systems.
“It’s not only the Nigeria system that has been exposed, even the big countries with very big economies, COVID-19 has exposed every gap in their systems; their system of health, their social safety nets, their governance issues have all been disrupted and I can assure you that after COVID-19, at the individual level, at the community level, at the state level, at the national level, we will begin to do things differently. It cannot be business as usual again.”

Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, Director-General, National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has commended Madagascar’s initiative that ensured its herbal remedy for the Coronavirus pandemic.
“We are proud of them (Madagascar). They appreciate what they have. We do not.
“All the herbs they have and are using, we have them. But we do not use them the way they are doing.
“They appreciate their brains and use them. We must do same here if we want to develop as a nation,” she told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Thursday in Abuja.
She regretted that Nigeria had consistently depended on what others were bringing to it, and emphasised the need to look inward for solutions to our concerns.
Adeyeye said that the novel Coronavirus had jolted the country, and challenged those in authority to make the health sector a major priority.
“COVID-19 has slapped us in the face. It has kicked us back and front. We are now facing the stark realities of being insecure.
“There is drug insecurity, medical devices insecurity, test kits insecurity; we have always depended on other nations for everything.
“India, for instance, is not supplying medicals to us again because they are thinking about their own people.
“We have been using Dogonyaro (Neem tree) for ages. Some other African countries have developed their herbal remedies.
“Which one can we claim to have developed in Nigeria? What we are looking for in Madagascar, we may have it in our backyard,’’ the director general said.
Adeyeye said that Nigeria had been a slave to China and India in terms of drug reliance, adding that the challenge posed by the pandemic would make the country to look inward.
According to her, it is time for Nigerians to make use of their talents by looking inward and coming up with something.
She said that the coronavirus pandemic had created opportunity for Nigerians to start making good use of their talent and attempt to create something on their own.
Adeyeye, however, called for a policy that would ban importation of drugs and compel Nigerians to look inward and start the development of home made drugs.
“Madagascar has done it. They have looked inward and came up with herbs; Nigeria has over relied on the white for everything,
“Some of us claim to love this country, but we do not. We have good weather, good environment, natural resources, but we are not making good use of them,” she said.
“We must take the health sector serious by showing all sense of responsibility and we must work to stop importation of drugs,’’ the director general said.
The director general also called for investment in research, adding that without it, Nigeria would not move forward in the quest to develop herbal medicine.
“Research is an important ingredient that can create confidentiality agreement between herbal practitioners and NAFDAC.
“Research is important to help us know the content of the herbal mixture we even need to take
“Before COVID-19, we had inaugurated Nigerian Herbal Medicine Product Committee, precisely in March 2019. We have wasted a lot of money and opportunity to develop our herbal medicine and cannot continue that way,” she said.
The director general also called for mutual trust among the herbal practitioners to facilitate inventions in the medical sector.
