Nigerian government says the remedies provided by Madagascar for prevention and treatment of coronavirus would be subjected to stringent clinical tests before it could be allowed for consumption.
This was revealed Tuesday by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 during its daily briefing in Abuja.
The national coordinator, Sani Aliyu, said that any medication coming into the country whether it is herbal cure, concoction or normal drug will be subjected to the normal regulatory processes.
“I want to start briefly by talking about the Madagascar cure. As directed by the President, I want to state that any medication coming into the country whether it is herbal cure or concoction or normal drug, it has to be subjected to the normal regulatory process.
“The Madagascar cure will be subjected to the normal process we expect within the legal frameworks and guidelines that we have. This is to ensure not only to establish its efficacy but for it to be legally registered.
“So this drug would go through the normal regulatory process which can be stringent before it can be administered in the country.”
