ABUJA – Oyewale Tomori, a professor of Virology, has opined that government officials should take the lead in taking the Covid-19 vaccine when they arrive in Nigeria.
In an interview with Channels TV, Tomori said “Let’s see some of those government people take thee vaccines and then we’ll watch them and see whether they survive or they don’t survive. Then gradually, we’ll begin to build up people’s immunity,” he said.
“But tell me to go and get the vaccine and then you are taking your own children to Dubai to go and take another vaccine, of course, I will not believe in you.
“Do it openly at the Eagles Square. Get the big people there, the legislature, whatever, then we’ll convince our people that it is safe to take.”
“It is a gradual thing, over time people will now begin to say these guys that have gotten it did not die, did not fall sick, therefore, I can go there and take it. That’s what we need to do. Leadership in this country has to come from the top,”
“Apart from the health workers, we need to get our leaders to come out there openly and take this vaccine. I would be one of the ones to go there and get the vaccine.”
