"I have no apology for saying that I used Chloroquine, Zithromax, and Vitamin-C to get treatment and Allah cured me"

Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has said he doesn't lament advising his wellbeing authorities to treat COVID-19 patients with Chloroquine.

Mr Mohammed said this while reacting to the reaction from individuals who felt such authorisations are only saved for proficient clinical staff.

Mr Mohammed, who was the list instance of COVID-19 in Bauchi, told writers a week ago that among the drugs that he utilized in treating the dangerous infection were Chloroquine, Zithromax, and Vitamin C.

The Governor said he would prefer to ask doctors dealing with the state's COVID-19 patients to treat them with chloroquine and Zithromax than watch them pass on of the sickness.

The National Agency for Food Administration and Control (NAFDAC) had a week ago responded to the senator's mandate by noticing Nigerians not to utilize any medications for the treatment of COVID-19 other than what the NCDC supports.

“The agency is concerned about reports on social and other media of drugs or vaccines to cure COVID 19,” NAFDAC’s Director-General, Professor Mojisola Adeyeye said in a statement issued to the media.

The NAFDAC DG added that “the agency has not granted any approval to any products for use as a cure or vaccine against COVID 19.”
Asked if he was worried by the backlash trailing his pronouncement on the treatment of COVID-19, Mr Mohammed said he owed no apology on what he said.

“Pertaining to what I said last week that I was misquoted, I was a COVID-19 patient. And I have been asked, how did I get cured? And I said how I got cured and I recommended what should be done. It was my own recommendation and not that of the state committee.

“I have no apology for saying that I used Chloroquine, Zithromax, and Vitamin-C to get treatment and Allah cured me.

"To me, it's better you take something, rather than sit down and die. We have not recorded any death in Bauchi... That one that died came after the test. And you can see we have plenty patients. And by the grace of God, Allah will heal our patients.

"Other countries are using other forms of medication. It is not an issue of Chloroquine alone. It is a common knowledge that COVID-19 has no vaccine or drugs; we are just groping in the dark.

“But still, if you have symptoms of fever you can take chloroquine. If you have the symptom of infection you can still take Zithromax and get well; if you have symptoms of pains you can still take panadol and get well; you don’t even need a doctor for that.

“But the doctors are the ones prescribing this. I didn’t take the Chloroquine on my own, and I am not recommending that people should go and use this without the recommendations of their case managers.

“All I was relieving was my experience.”
