The deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Evaristus Anyaehie, while declaring the seminar open said that herbs are good for curing diseases. “God made herbs for us to use in curing diseases, but due to lack of knowledge we perish. I believe that if we go back to history we will discover that our forefathers used roots and herbs to tackle all kinds of challenges they encountered. As an University that wants to make a difference, we have devoted time to research and bring to the fore the importance of herbs. During the covid-19 induced lock down, our University produced a lot of anti coronavirus drugs using herbs”, he said.
