We want to remind the public that any mixture or drug without a prescription should be considered dangerous and must be avoided. We encourage those who still have the mixture to hand it over to the nearest police station and visit a registered medical facility for review.
We pledge to continue working with all stakeholders in the fields of Church Ministry, Health Care, Education and Research to address such concerns.
