The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, on Wednesday expressed optimism that Nigeria would soon win the war against coronavirus.
He said the traditional cure for the virus had reached an advanced stage and would be made available to the public very soon.
The monarch disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, shortly after he donated two motorised modular fumigators to the state government.
Oba Ogunwusi, who said the donation of the mechanical fumigators was his own contribution to the state government’s efforts at combating the pandemic, said he had gone far in working with the traditional medicine practitioners in the country to find a solution for coronavirus.
He said though scientific solutions were being sought globally to end the pandemic, traditional medicine and solutions must also be considered and embraced as a way out of coronavirus.
The Ooni, therefore, urged the Federal Government to emulate Madagascar in its quest to use local herbs in combating the coronavirus, declaring that local herbs have the potency to heal victims of the virus.
Speaking, Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun commended the monarch for the gesture and assured him that the fumigators would be put to good use.
Abiodun said the state was open to ideas and activities capable of finding a solution to the virus.
