The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, has disclosed that the medicines brought into the country as gifts by the Chinese government as aid to Nigeria to help combat the coronavirus, will first be approved by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) before being used by Nigerians.

He further explained that the purpose of the medical team from China coming into the country, is to provide technical support to our healthcare workers, especially on tactics and strategies they used to reduce the cases of coronavirus in China.

The Minister, who disclosed this during the briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, on Friday in Abuja, said: “The team from China are under quarantine. We asked where they intend to observe the quarantine and they said they have a compound. So, we sent the NCDC to go and inspect the compound before they came.

“Whatever it is that they brought will have to be certified by NAFDAC, also whatever medicines they brought. The medicines will be certified by NAFDAC before Nigerians will take those medicine”.

“Our main interest in these people is to see from a scientific point of view, what actually the processes were that they used in their country. What are the tactics that they applied? This is because if you want to know something, you ask somebody who has suffered it before.”
