COVID-19 vaccines: Watch what you say – Fayemi cautions Gov Yahaya Bello

Published

on

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has warned his Kogi State counterpart, Yahaya Bello to watch what he says over his recent utterances concerning COVID-19 vaccines.

Bello had recently warned Nigerians to avoid COVID-19 vaccines, claiming that they were meant to kill people

It is no longer news that Nigeria is battling the more deadly second wave of the pandemic, with an average of 1,000 cases daily being announced by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, NCDC.

Nigerian authorities have also announced that the vaccine will soon arrive in the country, promising that whichever vaccines that are approved by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 will be safe for Nigerians.

But Bello has maintained that the COVID-19 vaccines being produced in less than one year were being used to introduce new diseases that will kill many, instead of being a source of healing.

However, appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today, on Thursday, Fayemi urged the Kogi Governor to thread with care.

Fayemi warned that his Kogi counterpart must not risk the lives of the citizens.

He said “while the Kogi Governor has a right to his reservations, the most appropriate response to a matter of such import is not to be dismissive.”

Fayemi said the “preponderance at the level of the Nigerian Governors Forum believes that COVID-19 is real,” adding that “there is a need to respond to the challenges that have emanated from the pandemic.”

He said that COVID-19 is not just a health issue, adding that “it behooves public office holders to work in concert with the Federal Government to get to the bottom of the problem which is not peculiar to Nigeria.”
