According to her, the foreigners are making more gains by exporting the local herbal products than members of the association.
She advised the association to expose dubious members selling fake products to enable herbal products compete favourably with orthodox medicines.
According to her, more employment can be generated for the youths if traditional medicine is boosted.
Earlier, Waziri said that the association’s quest for planting such trees and shrubs became necessary as most of needed species were going out of extinction.
Waziri said that the planting would protect the species, while his members could transplant some of these species in their various localities.
He said that the plan to establish a plantation followed the discovery by members that more than 700 species of trees and shrubs with medicinal values were being destroyed indiscriminately. (NAN)
