THE APOSTLES OF MADAGASCAR’S HERBAL CONCOCTIONS, WHERE ARE YOU?
When the deadly coronavirus pandemic took mankind captives, countries scrambled for antidotes.
As the days crawled into weeks and weeks walked into a month, the world would resign to the obvious fate that perhaps the enemy was more formidable than it had presumed.
As the search for a possible cure continued, Madagascar came out with a claim that it had found a concoction powerful enough to withstand the deadly effects of COVID-19.
It boastfully impressed upon the World Health Organization to adopt its concoction for a worldwide treatment of the virus. W.H.O could not vouch for the efficacy of the discovered antidote so it rejected same, much to the anger of Madagascar’s authorities.
Madagascar’s President was enraged and said he would apply the concoction to its infected citizens.
The professional Jeremiahs, as President Akufo-Addo would put it, were in business as they could not understand why President Akufo-Addo was refusing to take advantage of the discovered antidote to cure those infected with the virus.
To them, it was the perfect opportunity for Ghana to curb the spread of the virus using a made in Africa medicine.
Months down the line, Madagascar, the luckiest country in the world to have landed on a cure for COVID-19, saw its infected cases skyrocketing. The concoction has proven to be just water with herbs with no medicinal values.
As I write, the President of Madagascar has sacked his health minister because of a spike in the number of infected cases.
Ghana, we have a God-sent leader in Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. May God continue to bless His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for managing the COVID-19 cases effectively.
