The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), has faulted Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi’s rejection of COVID-19 vaccines.
Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and Chairman, NGF said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja; after the forum’s first virtual meeting for 2021.
Fayemi said that the Governors met and deliberated on matters of national importance; particularly the procurement and administration of COVID-19 vaccines in the country.
Oriental News Nigeria reported that Bello had kicked against the COVID-19 vaccination, saying it was meant to kill people.
“On the ill-fated pronouncement made by Governor Yahaya Bello regarding the COVID-19 vaccine in a national daily; the forum totally and categorically dissociated itself from the statement.
“The forum emphasised that it will continue to be informed and guided by science; and will ensure that every decision it takes will help retains public and professional trust; and is not compromised by conflicts of interest,” he said.
