COVID-19: FG is yet to show commitment on our drug — Iwu

COVID-19: FG is yet to show commitment on our drug — Iwu

The Chief Executive Officer of Bioresources Development Group, Prof. Maurice Iwu, has stated that the Federal Government was yet to show commitment to the drug presented by his team of researchers for the treatment of COVID-19.

Iwu made this known during a Zoom Conference organised by Elombah Communications in collaboration with Njenje Media Limited, tagged: “COVID-19 and the proposed Vaccination Bill: Implications for Nigeria.”

The former boss of the Independent National Electoral Commission, who led a team of researchers, had presented a plant-based patented treatment for COVID-19 to the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu.

But Iwu, while speaking at the Zoom Conference, said the government was yet to show interest in the drug, calling on the National Assembly to organise emergency Public Hearing on this issue.

He said the lawmakers through their oversight function should direct the agency concerned to fast track the process of validating the drug.

Iwu said: “Government needs to show interest on our drug.

“The money raised by the private sector can be deployed.

“It does not need to come to Prof. Iwu.

“It is information.

“The product is ours, but the information is already outside.

“There must be interest on the part of government that they want to test the drug.

“Once the government shows interest, every other thing will fall in place.”

Iwu said the lawmakers can havea public hearing on the drug and ask why the validation for the drug is taking longer than necessary.
