The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has called on Nigerians not to take the Covid-19 Vaccine being imported by the President Muhammadu Buhari Federal Government, claiming that the vaccine will introduce the disease that will kill ‘you and us’, Page 36 learnt.
Recall, that the Nigerian government said that it is expecting at least 100,000 doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech approved Covid-19 vaccine by the end of January, 2021, through the COVAX co-financing public-private facility.
“They want to use the Covid-19 vaccines to introduce the disease that will kill you and us. God forbid!”, Governor Bello said in a viral video allegedly seen by Premium Times, not Page 36.
The Governor hinged his criticism of the foremost Covid-19 vaccines currently being rolled out in nearly 50 countries globally, on the breakneck speed at which they were developed.
He lamented: “These vaccines are being produced in less than one year of
Covid-19. There is no vaccine yet for HIV, malaria, cancer, and for several diseases that are killing us… We should draw our minds back to what happened in Kano, during the polio vaccines that crippled and killed our children. We have learned our lessons.
“If they say they are taking the vaccines in the public, allow them take their vaccines. Do not say I said you should not take it, but if you want to take it, open your eyes before you take the vaccines.”
However, Governor Bello did not provide any evidence to back his claims that the Covid-19 vaccines could be dangerous to the health of the citizens, even though the fast development of the foremost jabs raised concerns, globally.
