Ooni of Ife makes good his promise, delivers herbal therapy for COVID-19


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has delivered his promise to unveil herbal drugs for the treatment of Coronavirus.
In May 2020 the Nigerian first class monarch had announced that he had discovered the cure for coronavirus.
In a video he shared on his Facebook page at that time, the Oba showed some natural herbs that could cure Covid-19 and how people can use them.
The video got over 50 thousand views and over one thousand seven hundred shares and he took to the post that followed the video to say.

“To solve the ailment it is only through natural elements that we put together above all from nature which we have tested”

“I have used it and I also used it for some of the chronic Corona patients and they testified” he said.

He had at that time challenged all researchers both in Nigeria and in the globe to make the natural herbs into clinical medicine extract the vaccines from it.

The monarch while unveiling the herbal cure said the Federal Government is aware of the drug and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has approved it.

The drugs were researched and produced by Yem-Kem International Group under the leadership of Dr. Akintunde Ayeni in collaboration with Oba Ogunwusi’s outfit, Ooni Ojaja Global Outreach.

Speaking at the unveiling of the drugs, Ooni said “Today is a great day in the history of this great nation, I give kudos to the Minister of health, NAFDAC [director-general] and the presidency for the success of these products.”

“I want to announce to the whole world that there is a new phase in traditional medicine research. We have been on this research for some time. It’s 100 percent a private initiative and to the glory of God, NAFDAC gave us all approval last year September. And we ensure that the products were effective”.

“We have started using it for COVID-19 patients, including political office holders since last year September. Now we are very convinced that something very good is coming out of Nigeria.”

“I have been using this drug to boost my immunity. This is our own vaccine to combat covid-19”, Ooni said.

The Executive Chairman of Yem-Kem International, Dr. Akintunde Ayeni said the drugs would complement the efforts of the federal government to improve orthodox health-care services.

Ayeni said, “Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni, called me personally and sent some herbs to me to research upon.”

Ayeni said the drugs would take care of COVID-19 and that bitter leaf capsule was also produced for the treatment of diabetes and high blood pressure.

The drugs are Verozil, Bitter Leaf Capsule, Vision Pro and Rio Capsule
Speaking further, Ooni said it is a proven fact which is equally established by the World Health Organization that Africa and indeed Nigeria have the best herbs which could be used for vaccine production.

“We have worked with various stakeholders in the health sector including the NAFDAC, Federal and Osun State Ministries of Health, Standard Organization of Nigeria and many others who have been so supportive.

“To the glory of God, NAFDAC gave us all the approvals last September but I insisted that the products be packaged properly. To the glory of God, these products have been tested especially on thousands of COVID-19 patients including some in positions of authority who are currently free from the pandemic.

“We are not doing this in isolation and I am happy to inform you that the National Assembly is currently working on a bill of the Federal Executive Council, on medical research that is alternative to orthodox medicine which is the herbal medicine

“Now that we have gotten here, our focus is to employ one hundred thousand (100,000) youths within the next fifteen months. This will be achieved virtually,” the Ooni said.

Speaking on behalf of the Ogun health commissioner, Gbenga Adepoju, who is the Director of Public Health in the Ministry, pledged government’s support for the products, noting the country has what it takes to solve her problems.

In their separate speeches, NAFDAC’s Director of Public Affairs, Mr. Jimoh Abubakar and the representative of Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) Engineer Gideon Amosun, jointly declared the support of their organizations for the products as they commended Ooni for the medical breakthrough.

Resident Doctors would account for the blood of any patient that dies on account of their ongoing strike action, says senate

The Senate committee on health has faulted the strike action embarked upon by the resident Doctors which is having a telling effect on patients.

The chairman of the committee Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe said Nigerians would hold the resident doctors responsible for the blood of any patient that dies on account of their ongoing strike action.

Oloriegbe spoke at the public hearing  of the bill entitled  “Federal Medical Centre, Mubi, Adamawa State (Establishment) Bill, 2021” sponsored by Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed (Binani) 

According to him, the National Assembly made every effort to avert the doctors ongoing strike to no avail. 

“We had a marathon meeting just before Easter on March 21st specifically and we agreed on all the issues that were raised by the resident doctors.

He said there three Germain issues which included the payment of salary to house officers which as at that time they also agreed had been essentially been cleared which was the major reason they wanted to go on strike.

“The second one was what they claimed to be payment to local resident doctors, which was an aberration where there was not supposed to be local but the government agreed to commence payment which has started to be done.

“Those are the two critical ones that were germane most of the other issues that were raised were not even issues within the purview of the federal government because they were issues of state governments that owed salaries or something. 

He said they are issues that relate to things that were in 2014, 2015 which was as at that meeting, the Federal Ministry of Finance confirmed that a committee has been set up to look at the other aspects. 

“So we are surprised that the resident doctors went on strike. However, we are not reneging, my counterparts in the house of Representatives are meeting with the resident doctors.”

Umar Egbunu Muhammed, Lafia

The Nassarawa State Government has raised the alarm over shortages of essential supplies of COVID-19 vaccines for its citizens who are yet to access the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination particularly the vulnerable persons in the state.

This state commissioner of health, Pharmacist Ahmed Baba-Yahaya made the disclosure during the World Health Day in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital on Wednesday.

According to him, “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the light on the inequalities among the citizens amidst shortages of essential supplies, poor people have been pushed to the back of the queue in accessing COVID-19 test kits in the state.”

He continued: “There are several shades of inequalities, discrimination based on gender, place of residence, income, educational level, age, ethnicity and disability to disadvantage of the vulnerable populations across the state.”

He, however, emphasized that there was need to start to act on the social and economic determinations of the people, by working across sectors to improve living and working conditions, particularly the marginalized groups.

While reacting on the challenges being faced by the vulnerable persons in the state, he urged leaders at various levels to work together to address inequalities in their respective countries, specially on COVID-19 vaccines.

The commissioner of health also admonished pharmaceutical companies to expand their manufacturing capacity to overcome current supply shortages in the state, urging wealthy individuals to partner with the state government so that the most at risk populations in all countries could be protected.

Also residents in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital, Awe, Keana and Obi local government areas and others in the state have expressed worry over lack of access to COVID-19 test in their locality.

Narrating his ordeal, Mr. John Daniel, said they could not access the COVID-19 test in their community, owning to the fact that the health workers trained by the Primary Development Agency in charge of administering COVID-19 tests are focussing on tge rich in the state.

He said: “We are poor people. We have been relegatedto the background because we are not government workers.”

Also speaking to our correspondent, Ovey Timothy, said since the state government commenced the COVID-19 test the health workers have not be able to reach their community.

His words: “We are calling on the state government to urgently intervene and come to their rescue.”
