Quincy to Asabeafrika....'President Muhammadu Buhari is a lover of traditional medicine and i believe he will legislate the general usage'
Quincy Slimming Garri is one of your products which is making wave in town. Could you tell us the secret behind the brand?
The Slimming Garri has always been one of our major products but many people didn’t know it with that name. It was actually my first daughter (Mrs. Tobi Ayodele Keeney) who joined the Quincy Group that rebranded most of our slimming products and re-packaged them and that was how we re-named it “Slimming Garri” because it looks like Garri and feels like Garri but not one made out of Cassava, so it is not Cassava Garri but it is Garri. If you are obese (Obesity) and you take slimming Garri, it will blast your tummy and halt your appetite and reduce your cholesterol quotient. It is highly recommended for diabetic patients and it can be used as meal replacement. Anytime you don’t feel like eating anything, you can take your slimming Garri and it will be as if you have eaten. 
“You can put a tea spoon of the tummy blaster tea in a mug of water and let it steam for like 5 to 10 minutes and then you drink it, maybe once or twice daily. It will curb your appetite and you wont feel like eating that much”
Dr. Quincy chatting with the GDA
Can one add milk to it when drinking?
You cannot add milk to it because Milk is not good for people who are trying to slim down and it is sweet already because it comes with natural plant sweetener and you don’t have to add Sugar. If you are slimming down, you should not think of Sugar, you should not think of drinking liquid milk you are only allowed to drink skimmed milk but you cannot put milk in this.

I was looking at it from the perspective of my garri Ijebu with Milk, and that was why I asked if one can drink it alongside with milk?
Not at all, I can tell you that Quincy Slimming Garri is highly nutritious and it will slim you down naturally with no side effect. It won’t let you have a pot belly; if you already have one it will reduce it; the benefits are equally many even slim people could take it for health maintenance and detoxification.
Quincy to Asabeafrika....'There is abundance of wealth in traditional medicine that in oil'
So, what about the Quincy Sheer Butter brand, what is it all about?
That is what is called “Oori” among the Yoruba people, it is for everybody, this is our own Nigerian Oori packaged by Quincy and Oori as you know is a good skin moisturizer and it is equally an anti-inflammatory product for the skin and a natural product for soft skin.
Quincy to Asabeafrika....'Slimming Garri is good for obese people because it curbs their apetite'
What about Tummy blaster Herbal Tea?
In fact, it is one of our prime products which have done so well in terms of demands. It is strictly for fats people or obese people. You can put a tea spoon of the tummy blaster tea in a mug of water and let it steam for like 5 to 10 minutes and then you drink it, maybe once or twice daily. It will curb your appetite and you wont feel like eating that much. It can detoxify you and send out excess fat from your system and your tummy will be going down naturally.
Quincy to Asabeafrika....'Our Products are now of global standards'
What about Q-Bridge plus Face lotion?
It is part of our skin line, Quincy has a skin line now and it is a range of product from the stable of Quincy Herbal Medicine. We have so many brands under this range of products. We have the skin illuminating lotion and anti-stretch mark intensive repair cream with collagen. We also have the powder wash. It is like a family in the range, you use the powder wash first and then apply the syrup and you now use the skin illuminating as third action. My daughter brought in a lot of ideas and concept that has shot our products up. You know I told you in those days, that they (Daughters) said to us that they are coming to reform and revamp Quincy and today we have them around. They are fully into the business and today you can see the revolution happening.

As a former Secretary General of the traditional medicine council of Nigeria and Special Adviser to WHO on development of African Medicine, what will you advice new Government of General Muhammadu Buhari to do concerning legislating the use of traditional medicine in Nigeria?
I personally, I am an advocate of the General Muhammadu Buhari administration, I believe so much in the change that he is bringing and I voted for him based on that. I made sure that I voted for him and equally made my entire house hold to vote for him

You mean you didn’t travel out of the country during the election period like many elites did?
I was actually in America but I made sure I came back from America to Nigeria so that I can vote and I ensure my people voted for him and I can say everybody voted for him because we believe that things will change. There is something about him that is peculiar; his image and passion for change. I sincerely believe that he is not going to fail and he will not fall. That is my prayer for him and I know God will use him to perform wonders in this country and we will support him both in prayer and in anyway government feel we can help them achieve success.  So, when you talk about traditional medicine, I know President Buhari knows the benefits of traditional medicine and he equally knows that it is an economic window for the nation. He is a farmer and someone familiar with that industry and I know he will ensure they pass the bill on traditional medicine. I am sure one of his main objectives will be medical reforms and passing of the bill supporting the use of traditional medicine will be one of his main objectives. We are looking out of oil economy soon and traditional medicine is one of the areas where a country can generate and build a robust economic base that will be a buffer for our numerous economic development, today, countries like China, India and the rest of them are making great economic income from medicine but I can tell you that we can do same here, we are capable because the vegetations are there. The herbs are everywhere and the technical know how is available. So, why can’t our country develop it? Everything is ready, traditional practitioners are ready with registered certificates. The raw materials which are the plants are ever ready in the bushes and the only thing we need now is just the bill to back it up.

Can you take a political appointment as a minister if you are called upon to serve?
Politically, there is nothing wrong in giving service. If my country desires my service and we have a proper understanding of course I will not decline government’s request but I am not going to apply or campaign for such a job. I am a professional and an inventor in the area of traditional medicine but if Government comes seeking for my knowledge and service in my area of competence, I will volunteer.
Quincy to Asabeafrika...'Our Products are being re-branded for maximum global consumption'
Do you think we already have solution to HIV/AIDS or the research is ongoing?
As a traditional medicine practitioner, we believe that to every disease, there is a cure in nature. So, even if we don’t have the solution now, we will eventually get it because research is inconclusive. Research is continuous and it is only a continuous research that will bring an eventual solution.
Quincy to Asabeafrika....'Late President Yar Adua personally showed interest in the resque of my husband from kidnappers' den in 2010'
Your husband just left for the airport; in 2010 he was kidnapped by some kidnappers in Abuja. Would you say that was your saddest experience in life?
I am still living and I don’t wish to have another sad experience again but I didn’t like what happened but at the same time, I wasn’t angry with the government of the day. The man at the helms of affairs then was President Umar Yar Adua and he was quite supportive even with the American government too. They brought out all their sophisticated gadgets and the minister of communication was fully involved in the search. The minister of defense, the police and SSS, every reputable agency of government came into action and the response was just overwhelming. Everybody came to Abuja to support me in searching for my darling husband, even the president himself was busy calling me, telling me to keep calm that everything will be fine and at the end of it all, I thank God everything was indeed fine. My husband was rescued and delivered to me alive. I am grateful to God and I am most grateful to President Umar Yar Adua, may God bless his departed soul. He was a very responsive and responsible president. I thank the Nigerian government and the American government for their great support and response. Today, we have learnt a lot of lesson from that experience.

Have you ever taught of writing your memoir?
I don’t think I have gotten to that age yet. Maybe someone like you can begin to write about it but I am still experimenting. I see the rebranding of our brands as a preliminary for creating generational wealth. When the wealth begins to come then we can write the story of how it all began. We are coming. We are on every platform right now, mention it—Jumia.com on Amazon.com and I can say it is the beginning of the great wealth transfer but never say never, you people can start writing.

Do you have a role model?
My mother in-law was my role model before she passed on. However, one other big brand that is my role model is Coca-Cola because just like Quincy, Coca Cola started from nothing to something. Today, it is a world brand and we are all proud of Coca-Cola.
'The Quincy tummy buster Tea is a tea that keeps everyone in shape' Quincy says to GDA
What is the secret of success?
The secret of success is focus and the ability to succeed in everything you lay your hands on without failure in any. Ability to succeed in everything without failing in any, that is secret to success and for you to be able to achieve that, you need focus, that is the real thing. You have to focus on your goal, no distraction. There can be hardship but please, keep going. Put your eyes on the ball and don’t falter. Keep doing it, if you fall, stand up again and keep walking until your legs are strong for the battle ahead.
