Professor Maduike Ezeibe of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike at war with NACA,NCDC over HIV/AIDS Claims

www.odogwublog.com reports that Professor Maduike Ezeibe of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike is now at war with National Agency for the Control of Aids ( NACA) and Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) over is claims
 

Ezeibe who recently invented a therapy for the dreaded HIV/ AIDS pandemic, has said the condemnation of his work by the NACA and NCDC was borne out of envy.
 
Director-General, NACA, Dr. Sani Aliyu;  and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu, had in a joint statement Tuesday,  dismissed the claims by Ezeibe as untenable.

They said there was no evidence from the publications on the claims that "the authors obtained ethical clearance from an appropriate body in Nigeria to conduct this study, and only ambiguous evidence that informed consent was sought from the evidently vulnerable patients."

But in a swift reaction, Ezeibe dismissed the criticism  of NACA and NCDC as standing on nothing and a sheer manifestation of envy and jealousy.

The Professor of Virology and Veterinary Medicine  regretted that instead of celebrating the scientific breakthrough, the federal agencies have resorted to cheap blackmail that cannot be substantiated.

" If they say my work is obscure, how come the whole world has accepted it. I have made presentations in America and the work is already published in reputable world health journals because even the white men are convinced that the procedure was scientific.

" They are only deceiving people who don't understand scientific procedures. My therapy is not a concoction but pure science. The steps I followed were clearly stated  and any one in doubt can subject it to scientific test."

The Abia- born scientist challenged all those doubting the efficacy of his claims to engage him in  a scientific debate or assemble experts in the field for verification instead of dismissing his hard labour and years of rigorous research without superior argument.

He , therefore, appealed to the National Assembly to intervene and help him reap the reward of his labour and not allow enemies of progress frustrate him.

Ezeibe had explained that Nigeria would gain a lot if the Federal Government assists him to secure international patency for the therapy to avoid other countries from stealing the work.

Ezeibe who said over 500 HIV/ AIDS patients had already been treated by the drug also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to come to his rescue.

He said he had already secured national patency for the drug in 2014 during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
