Coronavirus: Give Maurice Iwu A Chance –Nigerians




Tobi Adebayo

Mixed reactions trailed the claims made by a former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Maurice Iwu that his team had developed a potential cure for the deadly coronavirus.

Iwu, the Chief Executive Officer of Bioresources Institute of Nigeria (BION), a research organisation, said his team had worked on solutions to the virus since 2015. He is also an expert in Pharmacognosy.

In 2014, he had said bitter kola could serve as a cure to Ebola virus, a claim which was largely debunked by the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) and the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).

However, some Twitter users supported Iwu while others opposed his claims, making references to the controversial 2007 elections during which he was the chairman of INEC.
