Abdulkabir Olatunji started this petition to FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA

Nigeria, like most of the world is currently battling the debilitating effects of novel coronavirus (Covid-19). The federal and state governments in Nigeria have responded through their ministries of health and the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC). The focus has been on trying to identify people that might have the virus, get those positive treated in mostly government-owned isolation centres. 

The government is largely following orthodox medicine protocols and not investing enough resources in finding a natural/herbal or organic remedy. 

Its argument is that anybody that has any such potential remedy should follow established channels for testing and approving such products, the challenge with this approach is that it relegates a potential source of a locally developed remedy that will be effective, easy-to-use, affordable and trusted by a large part of the Nigerian population who rely heavily on herbal/natural remedies. 

The Federal Government of Nigeria should see investment in the rapid development of a natural/herbal remedy as a strategic investment that can save millions of lives in Nigeria and abroad. Madagascar seems to be doing this and Nigeria can do better.
