Vice- President Yemi Osinbajo has met with a team of Nigerian professors and scientists investigating the effectiveness of Ivermectin, a drug in the prevention and treatment of COVID -19.

In a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice- President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande , it is said that Nigerian scholars have submitted their report to the World Health Organisation which is said to have appointed a peer review expert from the United Kingdom.
