Gbajabiamila warns against politicising COVID-19 vaccines


The speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has warned against politicising the Coronavirus disease vaccines.

Mr Gbajabiamila gave the admonishment on Friday while speaking during the National Flag-off of Covid-19 Vaccination in Nigeria.

The top lawmaker who described the pandemic disease as an unseen enemy said collective efforts devoid of politics and conspiracy theories is needed to defeat the disease.

“This is the time for us to rally behind the government,” Mr Gbajabiamila said, adding that: “Like the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has said, the virus knows no creed, knows no religion, knows no ethnicity, knows no sex and knows no age.

“So, it is important for all of us to come together as a country to fight the pandemic. As I have often said, we are actually in a war, but in a war with an unseen enemy.

“Therefore, when a country goes to war, you go as one. I want to implore the journalists and implore all Nigerians, therefore, not to give in to conspiracy theories because we will hear them,” he added.
