After the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labelled Nanosilver a pesticide,Nigerians have taken to social media to blast the FDA.
Nanosilver , an Ebola experimental drug was developed by a Nigerian in diaspora.Before the arrival of the drug to Nigeria,it was approved by the WHO and Nigeria's Health Minister, Onyebuchi Chukwu.
FDA described the drug as a pesticide after Chukwu said on Thursday that the drug will be administered to the 8 Ebola patients in Lagos.
Reacting to Chukwu's announcement, FDA said:
“Individuals promoting these unapproved and fraudulent products must take immediate action to correct or remove these claims or face potential FDA action."
Many Nigerians are devastated with FDA's claim and have taken to social media to blast FDA.
A Nigerian by name Anigbogu Okechukwu said:
“If its pesticide, we need it that’s all. How do we come about Ebola? In fact I guess they cultured the virus and sent it to Africa because we rejected gay marriage. If you could remember that such has been done some years back against China through SARS."
Another Nigerian Joseph Anthony said:
“West made a lot of mistakes on the road to there so called “state of art medicines”. We had no opportunity to scrutinize Zmapp. Let’s take a bold step to try
something. Nothing is as strong as a proof.We may try it with rodents and watch out for cultured results or patterns and if we get the gut feeling to proceed based on the results then why not! Let’s ignore everyone. For once let’s look inward for solutions we are not toilet to receive processed
