COVID-19: Why Madagascar wants Nigeria to pay for their herbal cure

According to reports, the Republic of Madagascar asked Nigeria to pay 170,000 Euros (N78.2m) for the COVID-19 herbal remedy sent to the country.

A source stated “For our consignments in Guinea Bissau, Madagascar has asked Nigeria to pay over €170,000. We have received the invoice because the African country has made us to realise that the drugs are not being given out free.

“We are being asked to pay for the drugs yet to be validated. Since the AU directed the supply of the drugs to African countries, we may have no choice than to pay for it.

This payment may, however, be one-off because mass importation of the drugs from Madagascar will not be cost effective. By the time we take into account the cost of freight, the amount will be too high, “.
