COVID-19: FG Deploys Nigerian Researchers To Search For Cure by Islie: 7:29am On Mar 26
The federal government has deployed Nigerian science researchers to search for cure for COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking exclusively with THISDAY, the Director General, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu said three federal government agencies are working hard to contribute to scientific knowledge and solutions for COVID-19.

The three agencies are the Nigerian Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), Nigerian Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD), and the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

Chikwe said: “Nigeria’s research agencies have announced that they are working hard, to contribute to scientific knowledge and solutions for COVID-19.”

He said on the international scene, the global community was also working very hard to identify treatment for the disease.

He said: “The World Health Organisation (WHO) is leading the efforts on clinical trials in some countries. This will enable us validate the safety and efficacy of drugs for COVID-19.

“There have been early promising results and we look forward to final validation. In addition, clinical trials began March 17 for a potential vaccine. This effort is coordinated by THE Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI) which is one of our close partners at NCDC.

“We are involved in these discussions, especially to ensure equitable access when solutions such as vaccines and drugs for treatment are available,” he added.

This sounds funny to me. Not like I mean to insult any body o, but I think it's better the FG disburse some of the money intended for this to buying Ventilators and hand sanitizers and PPE.

Then the balance should be saved carefully to import the Covid-19 virus vaccines when serious minded people eventually gets them ready.

While the Nigerian Institute of one thing one thing should kindly go back to its usually Hybernation. In fact they should all self isolote.

Why mention "Igbo man" ?

you should have skipped the "Igbo" and continue with your comment.

I am 100% sure you come from the west, because I know a Northerner can't type such.

Science research field in Nigeria is dead.

Only 3 organizations to call upon? Can you imagine the mediocrity in a population of over 180 million

Instead of pouring millions of Naira to establish more science and technology innovation centers, we spend more on churches, mosques, electorals...

Anyways this is the country I find myself in, I will just try to survive and move to a developed nation or make it here.

Don't expect much from these institutions,since their inception what have they developed or produced?

Let me just be watching my CNN and BBC because that's where I get to see ppl behavior in the epicenter and rightfully replicate it.

If our dumb ašš FG is smart, we should be placed on lock down ASAP! I mean are we not seeing what's happening in NYC atm?

Heaven help those who help themselves.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said

"If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place."

If mankind had adhered to this advice, the whole world won't be in this mess. Yet, it is the solution adopted by everyone.

For those that are not happy that the message was from the noblest of mankind, you can do yourself a good by kissing a high tension.

Quote me unnecessarily and get your comment crossed. No time for nonsense. I am the MOD of my post.

My Admonishment to The United Nations , The WHO and The Federal Government of Nigeria Headed by His Excellency President Buhari is This...


Nothing Can Happen without GOD'S Permission. He is The Creator of the Earth and all its inhabitants. Genesis 1:1 , Colossians 1:16

We all are Created by GOD ALMIGHTY and For His Purpose. Revelation 4:11

When We, His Creatures Walk away from his Paths, He allows Famines, Pestilences, Deaths .

The World Today Has Given in to Non-essentials, Abominations, Wickedness, ungodliness, Murders, Dis-obedience,Rebellion etc

GOD ALMIGHTY is the Ultimate and Permanent Cure for Corona Virus and any Pestilence.

Many People are Offering solutions Here and there. But I Tell you, Offering Solution without Repentance which is the root of the problem is a Waste of Time and Resources. Even if a cure is gotten, a Bigger Plague will hit the Earth.

If you like Lock yourself or Lock the whole Country! Without Repentance, you Cannot Escape it!

What GOD Needs from Us is Repentance!

We All Need to Repent! Our FATHER in HEAVEN is a Merciful FATHER.. He is well Capable to Wipe this whole thing.. Matthew 19:26, Psalm 62:11

Your Excellency, Humble yourself ! Call for 3days of Prayer and Fasting.. The Leadership of the Country must be in attendance..

Nations Need to as A Matter of Urgency Denounce all these Abominations that are Widely Celebrated

We all Cry to GOD ALMIGHTY for Mercy and Repent of all the Evils, Bloodshed and Wickedness...

Anything apart from this, It's a Waste of Time and Resources.
