Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, has discouraged the use of COVID-19 vaccine, falsely stating that the jabs are meant to kill people.

Nigeria, like every other countries, has recorded a second wave of the virus with an average of 1,000 cases daily in the last two weeks.

The increase in infections has led to demand for vaccines to curb the spread of the virus.

The federal government had announced that Nigerians will receive the coronavirus vaccine by January 2021, adding that a technical working group in the ministry of health is working on which vaccine will best suit Nigeria, considering that the country has no -80 degrees freezers.

Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Faisal Shuaib, had disclosed that provisions would be made for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to receive the vaccine on live television.

But in a viral video, the Governor Bello, while condemning the use of the vaccine, said it is meant to kill people.

Speaking while addressing a crowd, the Governor doubted the authenticity of the vaccine, saying there is no cure for HIV and many other diseases troubling mankind.

His words, “Vaccines are being produced in less than one year of COVID-19. There is no vaccine yet for HIV, malaria, cancer, headache and for several other diseases that are killing us. They want to use the (COVID-19) vaccines to introduce the disease that will kill you and us. God forbid.

“We should draw our minds back to what happened in Kano during the Pfizer 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. Don’t say I said you should not take it but if you want to take it open your eyes before you take the vaccines.”
