Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has finally received a jab of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID19 vaccine months after faulting the novel disease and the vaccination exercise.
We understand that the politician in May 2020 took to his Twitter page to condemn the Nigerian government for accepting to try the COVID-19 vaccine in the country.
Fani-Kayode in his submission, described the vaccine as ‘EVIL’, adding that Nigerians have been turned into Guinea pigs to test Gates’ killer vaccine.
His tweet reads: “@Who are set to begin Covid-19 vaccine trials in our country. EVIL! Not only have our people been turned into Guinea pigs to test Gates’ killer vaccine but our leaders are also passing a law that will make the use of that evil vaccine compulsory. What a mess! I weep for Nigeria.”
However, months after FFK’s condemnation of the vaccination exercise and the Nigerian government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, he made a u-turn and took the jab on Tuesday, March 30.
According to him, he had to ‘bow to sound logic and superior reasoning’ to accept the vaccine.
FFK preached that the COVID-19 disease is real and advise other citizens who have said no to the vaccine to take it in other to fulfil all righteousness and as well stay healthy. He added that he is delighted to have changed his mind, noting that the development has brought comfort to many around him who insisted that he must stay healthy & safe at all costs.
Sharing his experience with the vaccination exercise, Fani-Kayode wrote: “Despite my initially strong reservations I bowed to sound logic and superior reasoning and took my Covid 19 vaccine today.”
This is thanks to my sister the distinguished Senator Grace Bent who convinced me to take it and who emphasised that we must set an example to others. I also give thanks to my sister Hon. Patricia Etteh, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is the Chairman of the National Hospital & who not only let me eat all HER lunch in her office before the exercise took place but who also gave us a warm reception & guided us through the whole exercise.
“Her whole team and staff at the hospital were simply wonderful & very efficient & supportive & consequently the whole exercise was very pleasant. This is a clear case of “never say never”.
“If anyone had told me that I would take this vaccine up until one month ago I would have said “no way”.
“I am glad that I changed my mind & did so because it has brought comfort to many around me who insisted that I must stay healthy & safe at all costs. I recommend the vaccine to others and I assure you that National Hospital in Abuja is a great place to take it.
“Covid is real & has killed many people, including dozens that I knew & loved, over the last one year. Let us fulfil all righteousness, follow the protocols, sanitise regularly, maintain social distancing, stay healthy, stay safe, stay blessed and live long to take care of all our children and loved ones.
“Finally, let me add this: if my hero President Donald J. Trump can take the vaccine even after criticising and questioning it then so can I.
“Blessings! Peace! Shalom!”
