Senator Shehu Sani says that President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Federal Government Secretary Boss Mustapha do not need to obtain a live broadcast vaccine for COVID-19.
Tweeting on Friday, Sani said the leaders of Nigeria should only ensure that they are vaccinated with the same brand as regular people would be provided.
No need to Vaccinate d VIPs on live TV. Just do the right thing, when you vaccinate the leaders with Pfizer, make sure the people are also vaccinated with Pfizer, the former Kaduna lawmaker wrote.
When you vaccinate the People with Russian or Chinese vaccine, make sure the leaders are also vaccinated with the same brand.
At the end of January, Nigeria expects to receive the US-manufactured Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine.
The Government is also exploring the possibilities of having COVID-19 vaccines developed in the respective countries with the Russian and Chinese authorities.
