Meanwhile, the consumption is not restricted to commercial bus drivers and conductors alone. Paraga consumption is now popular with young and old, men and women. The emotional attachment customers of the numerous paraga drinks have for the product can’t be quantified as many believe it’s the best sexual enhancement drink to take.

‘With just N200 I can treat all sorts of illnesses…’ – DELE OGUNJOBI
I can’t afford the hospital charges when I am having minor health issues. This is my own hospital. With just N200 I can treat all sorts of illnesses here with herbal concoctions. I can’t stop patronizing this paraga joint because their mixtures are always good and healthy for the body. I was having malaria typhoid sometime ago, my family took me to the hospital and the doctor charged N20,000 for my treatment. That’s a lot of money, we can’t afford it.
I have to come here to get some mixtures with just N300 and in no time I was back strong and healthy. So, for me I will always drink this paraga as it works well for my body.

With the present situation of the country, alot of people are depressed, including me. So, the only alternative to makes myself happy is coming here to have a mixture of paraga.

‘Nobody can control the consumption of paraga’ – FRIDAY OCHUKO
Personally, I have brought about four friends here and they can all testify to the fact that the mixtures are really working, especially for man power. Paraga consumption cannot be controlled because not everyone can afford to purchase medicinal drugs to treat their illness but with the help of herbs and leaves mixed with alcohol we can treat all sorts of illnesses at no cost. They are relatively cheap to buy and I can tell you that they are really working in the body. I can’t stop consuming paraga because it has never failed me.

Whenever I am having a match to play is when I do come here to have a shot. I don’t know about the other benefits of drinking Mama Ngozi paraga but when it comes to sexual activeness, they work like a magic. I last all night long after taking this concoction. My partner has always been complaining that I am not really active sexually before now.
But ever since I have been drinking these mixtures, it has never failed me and I am sure it won’t.
