COVID-19 vaccines won’t hurt Nigerians, says Buhari

Following misgivings in some parts of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday promised that the COVID-19 vaccines to be procured by government will not endanger the people’s health.

He pleaded with the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) to assist in the mobilisation for vaccination.

The President bared his mind during an audience with a delegation of NSCIA, led by the President-General and Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar.

Although the council went to the Presidential Villa with a list of demands, such as security and marginalization, the President used the opportunity to clear the air on some expressed fears on Coronavirus’ the vaccines.

A source, who spoke in confidence, said: “At the meeting, the President assured us that he will ensure that the COVID-19 vaccines being brought will not endanger any Nigerian.

“He said the pandemic is global and he attaches importance to the health and safety of Nigerians.

“He asked NSCIA to assist in mobilizing Muslims and other Nigerians to be part of the vaccination which will soon begin.

“Although neither the Sultan nor any member of the NSCIA is opposed to COVID-19 vaccines, there has been anxiety over the vaccines in view of the Pfizer experiment in Kano State in the past.”
