Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has falsely claimed that the Covid-19 vaccines are meant to kill people and he discouraged its use.
The increase in coronavirus cases in Nigeria has led to demand for vaccines to curb the spread of the virus.
The federal government had announced that Nigerians will receive the coronavirus vaccine by January 2021.
However, in a viral video, Yahaya Bello questioned the authenticity of the vaccine and condemned its use.
Bello questioned why there is no cure for HIV and many other diseases troubling mankind yet a vaccine for coronavirus has been created after only 1 year.
He said: “Vaccines are being produced in less than one year of COVID-19. There is no vaccine yet for HIV, malaria, cancer, headache and for several other diseases that are killing us. They want to use the (COVID-19) vaccines to introduce the disease that will kill you and us. God forbid.
“We should draw our minds back to what happened in Kano during the Pfizer polio vaccines that crippled and killed our children. We have learned our lessons.
“If they say they are taking the vaccines in the public allow them take their vaccines. Don’t say I said you should not take it but if you want to take it, open your eyes before you take the vaccines.”
