Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has warned those in charge of distribution and administration of the COVID-19 vaccines not to play politics with the process.
Gbajabiamila also urged all Nigerians to rally round the Federal Government in the fight against the pandemic, describing the disease as “an unseen enemy” causing havoc around the world.
The Speaker stated that only a collective effort devoid of politics and conspiracy theories could guarantee a successful war against the virus.
A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, quoted Gbajabiamila to have issued the warning in Abuja during the flag-off of COVID-19 vaccination in the country.
He said, “We must not play politics with vaccines; we must not play politics with the health of our neighbours; we must be on the same page whilst we also correct and do what we need to do in terms of our role in checking the government and holding their feet to the fire.”
“In the statement titled, ‘COVID-19 Vaccination: We Must Rally Behind Government to Fight Unseen Enemy,” Gbajabiamila appealed to the media to pass accurate information about the virus and the vaccines to the public.
The Speaker assured Nigerians that with the support of the National Assembly, the government would deliver more vaccine doses to the country soon to expand the vaccination beyond the first four million doses.
He commended the efforts of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 for the doggedness with which the team worked in the last one year to contain the Virus from spiralling out of control in Nigeria.
