Take the vaccine since you collected COVID palliatives, Dino Melaye taunts Yahaya Bello


Dino Melaye, former senator, says the Kogi government must take COVID-19 vaccine since the state collected palliatives and money from the federal government to ease the effect of the lockdown on its residents.

Yahaya Bello, the state governor, has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the severity of the infection.

He has played down its complications, refusing to wear a face mask except when meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) had said all states and the FCT have received supplies of the AstraZeneca vaccine except Kogi.

According to the agency, the state was yet to receive “due to the non-repair of their cold-chain store coupled with the state’s concerns around the contradictory information about the vaccines”.

Bello also recently said COVID-19 is not an issue in his state, adding that he will not subject the people to vaccination.

Reacting in a tweet yesterday evening, Melaye asked why the state government collected palliatives for a disease it said was non-existent in the state.
