COVID-19: Fani-Kayode Reacts As WHO Begins Use of Trial Drugs On Nigerians
Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has berated the World Health Organisation (WHO) for planning to begin Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine trials in Nigeria.
Naija News had earlier reported that WHO had revealed that Nigeria will be part of the global solidarity drug trial to combat coronavirus.
The world health body had launched solidarity drug trials for these specific drugs – hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine phosphate, and remdesivir – in April.
Speaking to newsmen on Friday during the presidential task force (PTF) on COVID-19 media briefing, Fiona Braka, the officer in charge, WHO Nigeria, said drug trials would soon begin in the country.
According to Braka, more than 100 countries have joined the solidarity clinical trial, which was launched by WHO and some partners, to help find an effective treatment for COVID-19.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Saturday, Fani-Kayode described the vaccines as “Gates’ killer vaccine”.
He also accused Nigerian leaders of trying to pass a law which will make the use of the vaccine compulsory.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “WHO are set to begin Covid 19 vaccine trials in our country.
“EVIL! Not only have our people been turned into Guinea pigs to test Gates’ killer vaccine but our leaders are also passing a law which will make the use of that evil vaccine compulsory.
“What a mess! I weep for Nigeria.”
