The National Association of Nigeria Traditional Medicine Practitioners of Nigeria (NANTMP) have claimed to have cure to all life-threatening diseases, including the coronavirus pandemic which is ravaging the world.
The association asked the federal government of President Muhammadu Buhari to look inward.
The association made the claim in Abuja at a meeting of all its national executives who emerged after an election conducted on the 3rd of December, 2020 at the Federal Ministry of Health.
National President of the association, Dr. Ibrahim Dada Nakowa, said there was no need for Nigerians to spend millions of naira on medical tourism while all solutions to health challenges lies in traditional herbs, stressing that all that the Traditional Medicine Practitioners needed was to get adequate support from the federal government.
“There is nothing you can do on this earth without a sound health.God has given us herbs and roots to cure all forms of deases in the world, all that we need to do is to take advantage of this God given gifts to humanity.”
While reacting to the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world, Dr. Dada Nakowa who claimed to have a permanent cure to the deases, described the pandemic as a spiritual attack on the world that also needed spiritual forces to arrest the situation.
“This coronavirus pandemic is nothing serious. It only requires spiritual intelligence to handle the situation. There is no way one can get a cure to this pandemic in the hospital because it is spiritual. Before God inflicts a nation with a pandemic, he has already made available the remedy. This is nothing before God. Let government give us support, by God grace, we shall surmount all the challenges.”
Dr. Ibrahim Dada Nakowa enjoined all Traditional Medicine Practitioners to identify with the association which is now under the Federal Ministry of Health.
Chief Dr. Ezeugu Hyacinth, vice president, South-east, Chief Dr. Patrick Ebason, vice president, South -South and Dr. Adewunmi Ishola who is the board Chairman all attested to the fact that traditional medicine plays a very pivotal role in the treatment of various health challenges.
