Native doctors in Ozubulu, Ekwusi­go Local Govern­ment Area of Anambra State, who oper­ate under the aegis of Odi­nana Herbal Association, said yesterday that they have the drugs that could cure coronavirus disease.

They said this shortly after a closed door meet­ing presided over by their chairman, Somadina Ok­wuchukwu Azubuike. They urged the government to give them one month to go to the bush and gather the herbs and roots, stressing that any disease has a drug to cure it.

According to the chair­man, “We have drugs to cure the disease; any disease has a drug created by God.

The problem is that gov­ernment does not regard us; they prefer the ortho­dox medicine practitioners to the natives but forget that it is the roots and herbs that are used to manufacture the orthodox medicines.

“We are happy that after trying all the scientific ways to discover drugs for the cure, it was in vain and that is why they remembered us.

“Let government get one or two of the patients, who tested positive and quaran­tine them for us because we don’t have accommodation for them here in Ozubulu. We will give them curing concoctions.

“We want to use the two as a reference point and af­ter the two have been cured, government will then bring scores for curing but has to support us financially.”

The chairman, who stat­ed that their union disci­plined any erring member, expressed satisfaction that that the ball was in their court and that they would produce the drugs in no dis­tant time.

Also speaking, the patron of the association, Odinga John Chukwukelu, exoner­ated the government from any blame of disregarding the native doctors adding that, “fake native doctors have infiltrated the profes­sion”

“We will produce the drugs within a space of time only if the government will give us the go ahead order. The drugs are already there in the bush waiting. (Daily Independent)
