This was relayed by the National Coordinator, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on the COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu, said this on Tuesday in Abuja at the 30th joint national briefing of the taskforce.
“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. More importantly, not only to establish its efficacy but for it to be legally registered he said.
