From an article shared by PUNCH News, the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, which is formerly Anambra State University, has made tremendous moves to commenced an advanced diploma course in "Native Medicine." This piece of information was shared by The Special Adviser to the State Governor of Anambra, Mr. Willie Obiano, on medicine and herbal practice, the person of Dr. Onyekachi Ibezim, disclosed this at a press conference in Awka.
According to him, he said the development was part of the steps of the state government to advance and combine herbal medical practice in the state. He expanded that the entry qualification for the advanced diploma course would be the first degree in any field of study in the school.
Dr. Onyekachi Ibezim further explained that “ When he was appointed, he found out that traditional medicine practice was all comers’ affairs in the state." He pointed out that "Some practitioners would claim that they were born with the skills."
Speaking he said “In the medical line where I belong, you must go to school and obtain a certificate before you can practice. This is what we want to replicate in traditional medicine.”
In my opinion, this is indeed a great move for the state and Nigeria at large as those who want to enhance and practice native or traditional medicine can be trained in it and be certified alongside. However, what's your point of view on this great improvement? See some screenshot of mixed reactions gathered from the source below:
