I used herbs to treat myself of COVID-19- Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has told of how he took to herbs to treat himself of COVID-19 after testing positive.

Obasanjo made this revelation on Friday at the occasion of his 84th birthday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital while speaking at a colloquium to celebrate his new age themed, ‘Reflection on Governance and Changes for Post-pandemic Leadership in Africa.’

“I used herbs because a professor of medicine was the one who told me that herbs should not be ignored. He said 80 per cent of drugs had their origin in local herbs.

“The herbs will boost your immunity. A professor told me that every living thing has an inbuilt process of healing. While doctors care, God does the healing,” the ex-President said at the in person and virtual event.
