Buhari Reacts To Release Of Abducted School Girls

Buhari, Osinbajo Should Take Vaccines First – NPHCDA Boss

The Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, on Thursday said the President; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; and other prominent Nigerians will be among the first set to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on live television to help drive awareness.

Shuaib spoke at a press briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

He said, “On Tuesday, I had mentioned that we will like to see a situation where Mr President, the Vice President, the SGF, critical leaders come and take the vaccine in full glare of the public to demonstrate that this vaccine is safe.

“So, we have to make provisions for those. But even in developed countries, what we have seen is that apart from the prioritisation of health workers, you have to also identify critical leaders that you don’t want them to be wiped off by the virus.

“For example, in warfare, if you want to destroy your enemies, you look for specific leaders: captains, the generals, once you decapitate them, then the soldiers will become weak.

“So, as much as possible you do not want to also leave your leaders vulnerable to COVID-19. It doesn’t mean you want to prioritise politicians, that is not correct. I emphasised during the last briefing that we will prioritise our health workers because they are the ones in direct contacts with cases in isolation units.”

  1. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  3. Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and
    found that it is really informative. I am going
    to watch out for brussels. I’ll be grateful if you continue this in future.

    Lots of people will be benefited from your writing.
    Cheers!

  4. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but after looking at some
    of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I

    I have read stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this site.

  6. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to
    be happy. I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest
    you few interesting things or tips. Maybe you could write
    next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about
    it!

  7. My partner and I stumbled over here coming from a different web page and thought I may as
    well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
