“We have been able to treat patients whose families had lost hope on their recovery. Unfortunately, we have not been consulted to treat President Buhari. We can treat him and the government must realise that traveling abroad for treatment may not solve the issue."

The Patron of The National Association of Nigerian Traditional Medicine Practitioners (NANTMP),  Dr. Adesunmiboye Fawawo, said this in Osogbo on Tuesday.

Fawawo said, “President Muhammadu Buhari is our national leader and we must guide him with all jealousy. We are a national body which is recognised by the Federal Government. The association was established during the reign of former  President Olusegun Obasanjo and he uses our products. You can see how strong he is even at his age.

“If you get to mortuary many corpses found in the place are rich people because they don’t trust their health with local treatment. Many rich people believe expensive drugs and treatment but this will go a long way to deepen recession.”

Fawawo said those, who were afraid of the potency of herbs usually frighten other people by saying herbs cause kidney problem and other issues.

According to him, some herbal products are being exported to Europe and the United States while some herbal products are in hospitals including seleru agbo which he said is at the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo.

Will the federal government entrust the health of President Buhari to the hands of trado medical doctors?
