Seasonal Greetings to my fellow Ghanaians, as we celebrate this Easter festive, we should try to pray more, stay safe and stay home as we observe all the safety precaution measure.
I Nhyiraba Agyei, a broadcast journalist in Kumasi and Public Interest advocate, I am pleading to the Government of Ghana to give opportunity to Ghanaian herbalist to use our herbs to cure Covid 19.
Why am i saying this??? People have been using herbs for thousands of years for their culinary and medicinal benefits. ... As the Bible states in Psalms 104:14, God provides us with “herbs for the service of man.” again; Genesis 1.29 states and God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed: to you it shall be for food. Hopefully, after reading this article, you can start incorporating some of these health-boosting Biblical herbs into your life daily.
God gave us herb to cure our diseases and our forefathers were using it to live longer but 21st century Ghanaians are depending on drugs and vaccine for the west.

At this Juncture, i will like to Quote Dr Kwame Nkrumah in 1957 "the black man is capable of managing it own affairs" and this is the time for us to manage our resource and make africa proud. We can use our herbs to cure Covid 19 and use the same herbs to cure for the europeans and americans for money as the Chinese are trying to do. A Ghanaian Nurse in the USA used Garlic, Grains and Ginger to cure Covid 19 when she tested positive, this means we can do it ourselves here and stop depending on the whites for survival.
Fellow Ghanaians, let's support our own, I plead to the Government to give opportunity to our herbalist to come together as one and find antidote or vaccine for this Pandemic disease. Covid 19 has no cure, with these herbs around us , are we going to sit down for this Pandemic to rob our lives??? Lets all answer it and decide for the Nation.
