The recent Vice Presidential Aspirant of the PDP, Peter Obi has reacted to the decision of President Buhari to purchase the Madagascar Covid-19 herbal treatment.
In his tweet, he mentioned how important it is to show local pharmacies that their work is appreciated.
He stated that this will help build confidence for local producers of drugs.
“I firmly support the authorisation of @MBuhari for importation and subjection of the Madagascar #COVID19 Syrup to standard validation process for pharmaceuticals, and possibly for use in the cure of this virus.”
“Similar authorisation and encouragement should be given to local inventions. This will save us scarce forex and will give confidence to domestic researchers and inventors. -PO”
