The executive governor of Kogi State, Nigeria, Yahaya Adoza Bello has disclosed that he will not take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Recall on Friday, March 5, 2021, The Federal government of Nigeria launched the COVID-19 vaccination program after receiving 3.92 million doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccines shipment on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
Governor Bello, who has spoken out about his belief that there is nothing like COVID19 pandemic in Nigeria, has recently declared that he has decided against taking the vaccine.
The governor while speaking in an interview with Channels TV on Friday, March 5,said;
”COVID-19 is not our business in Kogi State. We have more pertinent issues and more pertinent matters that we are attending to in Kogi State. Insecurity we met, we’ve tackled it and several others. Disunity we met on ground and we have united Kogi State today not COVID-19.
COVID-19 is just a minute aspect of what we are treating or handling in Kogi State; there have been outbreaks of Lassa Fever and Yellow Fever and those were handled without making noise about it.
The last Yellow Fever (outbreak), we vaccinated our people against Yellow Fever, we encouraged them, we educated them and they felt the impact…If the Federal Government is gracious enough and give us COVID-19 vaccines, we will equally sensitise our people, people who wish to come and take can come and take but I am not going to subject the people of Kogi State to vaccines or vaccination and I will not make them the guinea pigs.
Mr President is the leader of this country. I respect him so high; all of us respect him so much. We love him and he is leading by example. If he needs to take the vaccine and he takes it, it is a welcome development.
As far as I am concerned, I don’t need to take the vaccine. There is nothing wrong with me, I am hale and hearty. I am 100 per cent healthy…I won’t take any vaccine.”
