Nigeria’s Priority Is To Get Covid-19 Vaccine, Says Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday said one of Nigeria’s main priorities now was getting the Covid-19 vaccine. He said this was a matter of utmost concern to the present regime.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, the Vice President spoke at the opening  of the virtual edition of the Paris Peace Forum which featured presentations by some Heads of State and government alongside international organisations, on a collective response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The statement was titled “Getting COVID-19 vaccine a matter of utmost concern, says Osinbajo. Akande quoted the Vice President as saying that “The priorities of Nigeria in the post COVID-19 era include improved healthcare and the economy. “First, we need to keep the virus under control. While our guards are still firmly in place, getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a matter of utmost concern.

“On this, we are encouraged  by the efforts of WHO and other international agencies working to ensure that vaccine delivery will be equitable across all countries, regardless of the priority of orders and ability to pay.”

Underscoring the importance of prioritising interventions and investments in the healthcare system, the Vice President said “we are encouraging private investment to upscale our health sector, with emphasis on improved facilities and affordable universal healthcare.”
