The little village of Afaha Obio Eno in Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state will on December 24, 2015 play host to people from all walks of life. One might readily ask what tourism facility abound in the serene village to attract such a mammoth crowd of guests.
The answer is that Afaha Obio Eno, which has recently assumed the nickname of “small India”, plays host to the administrative Headquarters of the T.Dr. Great Natural Healing Home.
Our Correspondent who visited the healing home reported that the place was wearing a new look in readiness for its 6th anniversary celebration which coincides with the birthday celebration of its Founder and Chief Traditional Medicine Consultant, T. Dr. Godwin Okon Daniel on December 24, 2015.
Our Paper gathered that T. Dr. Great Natural Healing Home which was founded few years ago has today become a home for solutions to people’s health and spiritual challenges.
It was learnt that while the conventional or orthodox medical practitioners used the scientifically researched drugs to treat ailments, T.Dr. Great Healing Home uses herbs, leaves, roots and plants’ stems to treat its clients. This natural means, our paper gathered, is in tune with the ancient medicinal practice of the forebears of Ibibio people, who, prior to the advent of civilization, used naturally endowed items to get rid of deadly diseases.
Most of the persons interviewed at the healing home hinted that the Founder and Chief Consultant, T.Dr. Godwin Okon, popularly known as T.Dr. Great, was ordained by his ‘ancestors’ to carry out the task of treating and healing people the natural way.
While attesting to the potency and efficacy of Dr. Great’s treatment, one of our respondents maintained that the number of people who throng the ‘Idim Etok’ healing home was a testimony of good result.
Meanwhile, an official release signed by the National Secretary and Associate of the Healing Home, Dr. Cletus Udoh shows that this year’s anniversary which is the 6th, would feature, amongst others, distribution of medicines as well as free treatments for interested guests.
The release also indicated that the celebration expected to be attended by multitude of people would also feature road show\ carnival float around major roads and streets of Uyo and its environs.
