NAFDAC approves PAX herbal drug as immune booster against coronavirus

Published

on

The Director of the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories, Ewu in Edo State, Rev. Fr. Anslem Adodo, has reported that the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has finally approved their herbal remedy for the treatment of symptoms associated with COVID-19.

In an internal memo that went viral on social media, Adodo said: “After a series of screening, spanning eight weeks, NAFDAC has today approved our Paxherbal COVID-19 herbal drug, Paxherbal Cugzin, for public use.

“It is the first to be so approved and presently the only one. The drug is specifically for treating the symptoms associated with the coronavirus.”

He said NAFDAC had earlier given tacit approval for the drug to be used, even though the body was yet to make that approval official; hence the initial packs of the herbal remedy bore the disclaimer, “these claims have not yet been verified by NAFDAC.”

But with that hurdle crossed, Paxherbal Cugzin now has the NAFDAC number: A7-4358L.

Pax Herbal Cugzin, which had earlier been produced under the brand name, ‘CVD PLUS,’ before it was rebranded to ‘Paxherbal Cugzin,’ is in capsules and packaged in a container of eighty 290mg capsules, each containing Garcinia Kola, Curcuma Longa and Zingiber officinale.

On April 29, the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories released a press statement on its official Facebook page “About Cure For COVID-19,” though the claim was really about the “treatment” of COVID-19.

FG to tax house rents, C of O, others

Published

on

The Director-General of the Budget Office of the Federation, Mr Ben Akabueze, says tax on rents, Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) and others is not a new law to the system.

Akabueze made the clarification while fielding questions from participants at a virtual presentation of 2021-2023 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper (MTEF&FSP) in Abuja on Friday.

He said the law that permitted payment of tax on rents and others was an existing one but had not been observed for a very long time.

“It is not new, it is just N50 to be paid and the law has always been there. I recall in early 80s when I started work, the receipt my landlord used to give me, he would paste a physical postage stamp on that receipt.

“Over time, because the culture of postage has dropped off and that was not been implemented, what FIRS has done now is to make that into electronic stamp that you can still use to comply with the existing law,” he explained.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) had last week announced that henceforth, there would be stamp duty paid on house rent and C of O in the service new adhesive duty.

FIRS urged Nigerians and other residents in the country to make sure that documents pertaining to rent or lease agreements for their homes or offices, C of O as well as a list of other common business-related transaction instruments were subject to authentication with the new FIRS Adhesive Stamp duty.

It stated that it was necessary in order to give these instruments the force of law and make them legally bidding on all parties involved in such transactions.

According to the service, the new FIRS Adhesive Stamp Duty was inaugurated in Abuja at the official inauguration of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Audit and Recovery of Back Years Stamp Duties recently.
