About Pharm. Ekenna Elikee


Pharmacist Ekenna Elikee was born in Umuekpu village in Amala, Ngor-Okpala LGA of Imo State, on July 14, 1970. He attended Alatia Primary School in Imo State and obtained his First School Leaving Certificate in 1983. He proceeded to Amala-Ntu Secondary School, also in Imo State, from where he obtained his WAEC O’Level Certificate with 6 Alphas and 2 Credits.

His dream course for university education was Medicine and Surgery but, by divine intervention, he ended up studying Pharmacy at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. He obtained the B. Pharm. Degree (with honours) in the year 2000. The pharmacy training has enabled him to acquire a lot of knowledge about medicinal and nutritional plants. Since his graduation from the University of Nigeria, Pharm. Ekenna has committed a lot of time and energy into personal studies of research documents that can lead him to establishing natural therapies for various diseases. Hence, Pharm. Ekenna has devoted more that 10 years in studying plant chemistry and using the knowledge in treating many diseases, which seem, in recent times, to be intractable.

Over the years, Pharm. Ekenna has recorded evidence-based successes in the treatment of cancers of the cervix, liver, ovary and lungs, as well as liver cirrhosis, diabetes, hypertension, thyroid dysfunction, stroke, viral load reduction in hepatitis B & C, infertility, and many other debilitating conditions.

These successes have drawn institutional and governmental attention to the works of Pharm. Ekenna. In 2013, on the directive of the then Honourable Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, Pharm. Ekenna was invited to present a scientific paper at the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research & Development (NIPRD), Abuja. In the same year, he was invited by the Nigerian Natural Medicines Development Agency NNMDA, Lagos, under the auspices of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, to make a presentation on the efficiency of medicinal plants.

His competence in plant chemistry and herbal medical applications has made him a popular presenter in some other health institutions. Thus, he has been invited to, and presentations at, the Nursing Department of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu, the Physiotherapy Department of UNTH, the School of Anesthesiology of UNTH, and also at the Nursing Services and Laboratory Department of the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Enugu, and the Enugu State University of Technology (ESUT) Teaching Hospital, Enugu. He has also been invited to make presentations at the National Science Week of the Ministry of Science & Technology, Enugu State, as well as the Annual General Meeting of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Enugu State Chapter.

In October, 2013, Pharm Ekenna was invited to present a paper at the Government House, Enugu State where the Executive Governor and all the commissioners were present.

Following the series of presentations, a combined research team from the Nigerian Natural Medicines Development Agency (NNMDA) and Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) decided to subject one of his herbal formulations to sub-acute toxicity tests in 2013, and to sub-chronic toxicity tests in 2014. The two organizations have, since, issued their approvals on the safety and efficacy of the herbal formulation. Thus, today, Pharm. Ekenna holds a certificate of validity and safety of his herbal drug. Pharm. Ekenna is really an epitome of innovation and creativity in herbal therapies.

In June 23rd 2015, the Administration of University of Abuja spotted and invited this rare talent, this vibrant and devoted young Pharmacist to make a presentation on “Cancer Cure With Medicinal Plants”, Pharm. Ekenna has distinguished himself by applying his pharmaceutical knowledge in a unique way in the management of diseases with medicinal plants.

It is not surprising therefore that Pharm. Ekenna is today in Imo State, his home state to continue his advocacy on the efficacy of Medicinal Plants in the treatment of very intractable diseases.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you this unrepentant advocate of natural approaches to therapies. He is also an unrepentant critic of the irrational use of allopathic medicines. He preaches that solutions to most illnesses can be found in herbal medicines that are more natural and more original. This is a man whose natural approach in the treatment of cancers has recorded tremendous successes. I present to you, Pharmacist Ekenna Elikee, the Managing Director / Chief Executive Officer Ekenna Natures Ltd.
