An exhibit of herbal products from both China and Nigeria was held at the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nigeria on Feb 8.

Cui Jianchun, Chinese ambassador to Nigeria, Li Xuda, cultural counselor and director of the China Cultural Center in Nigeria, Blessing Akinlosotu, president of the Nigerian Youth Congress and officials and representatives from both countries attended the event.

Many certified herbal products shown to benefit human health were showcased at the exhibition to let local youngsters know more about alternative medicine for disease treatment.

Cui said both China and Nigeria are rich in herbal products and practitioners. Herbal medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine in both countries, and has been studied and documented for centuries.

“Take Lianhuaqingwen capsules, a Chinese herbal product, as an example. A series of scientific trials and experiments has shown LH capsules can prevent the progression of COVID-19 after close contact with an infected person,” he said.

Akinlosotu called on the Nigerian government to encourage the development of herbal medicine by providing an enabling environment for mass production.

The Chinese embassy to Nigeria and Nigerian Youth Congress organized this event to promote cooperation on traditional medicine.
