COVID-19 Vaccine: Ohanaeze alleges plot to use Igbos as Guinea Pigs


 

The apex Igbo socio-cultural youth organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has raised alarm over alleged plot to use Igbos as Guinea Pigs to test-run the efficacy of the imported COVID-19 vaccines, warning the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Health to resist the temptation of ordering the distribution of the vaccines to the people of South-East geo political zone.

 

In an electronic statement made available to Fresh Angle International last night, Sunday December 27, OYC claimed: “Intelligent gathering shows the imported vaccine might  be a substandard brand and not suitable for human beings and we wish to alert Igbos not to accept any free vaccines in any part of Southeast or anywhere in Nigeria, there are attempts to invade Igboland with COVID-19 vaccines and Igbo youths will resist it with our sweat and blood, any health official, who insists on administering these vaccines must show example by administering it to himself or herself in the public first”. 

 

The statement authored by the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and the Secretary-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, emphasized, “Our expectations are that, there should be public administration of these vaccines to top Government officials as a measure of encouragement for public acceptance and any Igbo Politician championing the COVID-19 vaccines in the Southeast must use himself or herself and immediate family to test run it before the public, if there's no causality after 4days OYC will lead the campaign for public acceptance Igbos should avoid the vaccines and resist the distribution”.
