Determined to sanitise the field of Alternate Medicine practice in Ogun State and ensure its public acceptability,  the State Alternate Medicine Board (OGAMB), has inaugurated an eight-man committee to organise a training/re-orientation workshop for its members and personnel of security outfits.

The Chairman, Ogun State Alternate Medicine Board, Balogun Nurudeen Olaleye who disclosed this at the inauguration of the committee in Abeokuta, said the Board and practitioners had deliberated on the need to put up a programme that would change the negative mindset of the public and broaden the horizon of security operatives on the practice of Alternate Medicine.

He said, ’’we have concluded all the necessary arrangements to organise a mega workshop and re-orientation programme for all the Alternate Medicine practitioners across the State in collaboration with security agencies".

The Chairman disclosed that the orientation workshop was paramount to the development of the practice, adding that the programme would not only help eradicate the act of ritual killing and rescue the sub-sector from social disrepute but also save it from quacks who had battered the image of the profession for too long.

He added that the workshop would re-orientate all the practitioners on their mode of operation, particularly on what the law permits them to do, expose them to their limitations and open up what security personnel would be expecting from them in line with the modern-day practice.

Some of the participants, Chief Samson Soyoye and Mrs. Elizabeth Quodri commended the commitment of the Board towards taking alternate medicine to a greater height and assured of members' support to promot the practice.
