Former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has taken a swipe at Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello as Kogi is the only state in Nigeria yet to receive its share of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine.

Melaye stated that if the state could share in the money and palliatives distributed by the federal government to cushion the effect of the pandemic, then there is no reason for it not to take the vaccine too.

Recall that the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has insisted that there is no COVID-19 in the state, adding that he won’t take the AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID-19 vaccine.

The Governor had openly voiced his disinterest in administering the vaccine to the state’s population, saying that he will not let the indigenes be used as guinea pigs.

Bello declared Kogi State has more important issues to deal with than subjecting residents to COVID-19 vaccination.

Governor Bello however added that he won’t stop residents who wish to be vaccinated if the federal government makes the vaccine available.
