Ibezim said, “ When I  was appointed,  I found out that traditional medicine practice was all comers’ affairs. Some practitioners would claim that they were born with the  skills.

“In 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.”
