The Federal government on Thursday said contrary to reports, Nigeria did not order for the Madagascar herbal solutions for COVID-19.
It said the herbal syrup was an offer by the Madagascan President.
Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, said this in Abuja at the 31st joint national briefing of the taskforce.
He said, “Nigeria did not ask for the Madagascar solution, the Madagascar government decided to airlift quantities meant for African countries.
“That of West Africa was taken to Guinea Bissau so that all the members of ECOWAS have their commodities offloaded in Guinea Bissau and that was the one I referred to that we were making arrangements to evacuate.
“But the impression out there is as if we abandoned home-grown solution and we were looking for Madagascar solution.
“We didn’t ask for it…It was taken in the spirit of African brotherly love to Guinea Bissau and we have asked our ambassador there to establish the location, the quantity and he has done that,” he said.
