The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has urged Nigerians to explore potentials in herbal medicine for the cure of coronavirus.
The monarch speaking during a press conference in his palace on Monday contended that the traditional herbal medicine has the potency to cure coronavirus adding a divine proclamation came out to the world last year June 6th 2019, during the World Ifa Festival – Otura Meji which foretold the impending rage of this invisible pandemic war.
“We should not condemn the alternative medical practitioner at this point in time. I attest to its potency, it has been used to cure many chronic diseases. As spiritual head, this pandemic was foretold last year June. It is to help humanity in Nigeria.
“Cuba as a country that has strong traditional ties with Nigeria and the Kingdom of Ife, in particular, have not only defeated the Covid-19 but now rendering huge medical assistance to several countries across the world because they value their cultural heritage which they got from us.”
“As the spiritual head, I have a lot gathered for the use of mankind as I am also currently working with Yem Kem International (Alternative Medicine Expert) pharmaceutical company for the packaging and distribution of these medications globally. I also challenge researchers both in Nigeria and abroad to make these natural herbs into clinical medicine and extract the vaccines from it,”, he said.
Ooni also admonished Nigerians to learn from the worst-hit nations and also find means in keeping their environment clean and maintain good hygiene to curb the spread of coronavirus and other diseases.
