Must Read

Nigerians have been warned not to play politics with the COVID-19 vaccines, by Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila.

He threatened that allowing conspiracy to flourish would jeopardize the vaccines’ good implementation.

On Friday, Gbajabiamila made the announcement at the COVID-19 Vaccination Flag-off in Nigeria.

On Tuesday, Nigeria accepted delivery of four million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

“We must not play politics with vaccines; we must not play politics with the health of our neighbour; we must be on the same page whilst we also correct and do what you need to do in terms of your role in checking the government and holding their feet to the fire”, Gbajabiamila said.

He added, “Therefore when a country goes to war, you go as one. I want to implore the journalists and implore all Nigerians, therefore, not to give in to conspiracy theories because we will hear them.”

He called on everyone to rally behind the government to fight the pandemic.
