The quantity of the consignment sent to Nigeria through Guinea Bissau could not be ascertained yesterday.
Guinea Bissau President Umaro Sissoco Embalo, who visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja on Saturday, brought the drugs allocated to Nigeria by Madagascar.

Quote
“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,”
a source revealed.

Recall that president Buhari said Nigeria would take the drug through intensive test to determine its suitability.

What an Aggressive Marketing.  Not to worry, based on Diplomacy, Nigeria should pay for the Drugs, not every country can play the Big Brother.

The President of aMadagascar had his cure ignored by WHO - after insufficient testing.

Now he wants to sell it to his fellow African nations.
