Former senator representing Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye a.k.a SDM has lamented about the fact that Nigeria isn’t able to develop her own COVID-19 vaccine.
SDM has expressed displeasure that no scientist in any of the over 159 universities in the country can develop a vaccine. He also said that the government needs to ensure that they carry out an in-depth research on the different types of Coronavirus in the country.
He made this call via tweets and a video published on his social media pages on Tuesday, January 12.
He captioned the video;
“FG can not give Nigerians vaccine without research and scientific study of the prevelent types of covid in Nigeria.
“It’s sad, shameful and a total disgrace. Why can’t the largest Black country with over 150 universities and thousands of core scientists develop it’s own vaccine? Why use 400 billion Naira to import vaccine when our professors need less than 50 billion to deliver!!!”
