Governor of Kogi State Yahaya Bello rejects the COVID-19 vaccine, says it’s meant to kill and discourages its use.
The increase in coronavirus cases in Nigeria has led to a demand for vaccines to curb the virus’s spread.
The federal government had announced that Nigerians would receive the coronavirus vaccine by January 2021.
However, in a viral video, Yahaya Bello questioned the vaccine’s authenticity and condemned its use.
Bello questioned why there is no cure for HIV and many other diseases troubling humanity. Yet, a vaccine for coronavirus has been created after only one year.
He said: “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 public, allow them to 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.” Here
