NewsOnline Nigeria reports that Prophet TB Joshua who is the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN has dropped a critical message for Nigerians on COVID-19 vaccine.
He said he had received thousands of e-mails on COVID-19 vaccine because of the many conspiracy theories surrounding the vaccine.
Joshua said his belief was that governments were only trying to look for a way out of this very challenging situation.
He urged Nigerians to cooperate with the government on the vaccine, saying it is for their good.
In his words: “Concerning the ongoing situation in the world, I have received thousands of emails on the COVID-19 vaccine. No doubt, there are many conspiracy theories surrounding this vaccine.
However, my belief is that our governments are only trying to look for a way out of this very challenging situation, although there may be bad faith in certain quarters
“Many people have complained of some negative reactions but this is always the case with vaccines of this nature. I remember I used to have such reactions whenever I took chloroquine. That does not mean chloroquine is bad. It works positively for many.
“At this time, our governments need our support and our cooperation – because the world is in a dilemma. God bless you. Emmanuel!”
Meanwhile, Nigerians should look forward to the end of February, 2020 for the possibility of accessing any form of inauguration against the ravaging coronavirus, the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has said.
The nation’s 36 governors, at a virtual meeting on Wednesday, said the country was working with the World Bank to ensure the supply of existing vaccines in the country.
The NGF, in a communique on Thursday, said its Chairman, Kayode Fayemi briefed members on a meeting with Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Chair of the Board of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GOVI) on the roll-out of the vaccines.
Fayemi was said to have told the meeting there is an arrangement for the World Health Organisation (WHO) “to facilitate pooled procurement and the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines across developing countries. Nigeria is among 12 countries in Africa that have indicated the readiness of the 92 qualified countries for the facility and will by end of February 2021 receive its first shipment of vaccines.”
