The Legislative head of Kogi, Yahaya Bello, has said they don’t the Coronavirus vaccine in the state, as they have “more appropriate” issues to handle.
Bello expressed this while showing up on ‘Legislative issues Today’, a Stations TV program, on Friday.
The governor, who has repeatedly denied the existence of Coronavirus in his state, said COVID-19 is the “minute aspect” of what the state is currently addressing, adding that Kogi is tackling diseases like Yellow Fever and Lassa Fever, without much noise about its efforts.
“COVID-19 is not our business in Kogi state. We have more prominent issues, more pertinent issues, more serious matters that we are attending to in Kogi state,” he said.
“Insecurity that we met, we’ve tackled it and several others. Disunity, we met it on ground and we have united Kogi state, not COVID-19.
“Coronavirus is one moment part of what we’re treating in Kogi state or dealing with in Kogi state. There have been episodes of Lassa Fever, Yellow Fever — those we took care of without making commotion about it.”
