A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has explained why he took the COVID-19 vaccine after openly condemning the administration of the vaccine.
Fani-Kayode said that the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is different from the one influenced by the American businessman and software developer, Bill Gates.
Fani-Kayode who took the vaccine at the National Hospital in Abuja on Tuesday said this in a series of tweets on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.
He said the AstraZeneca vaccines are safe, adding that they have been tested and administered successfully in other parts of the world.
The tweets read: “The COVID-19 vaccines we are taking in Nigeria are not Bill Gates’ vaccines and neither are we being used as Guinea pigs.
“These are tried & tested, have already been approved & have been administered successfully throughout the world. This is the Oxford AstraZeneca brand.
“There is a world of difference between what we are being given in Nigeria & the exploratory vaccines that @WHO had wanted to test Africans with which we spoke against & resisted last year.
“Most importantly, Bill Gates & his foundation have no connection with Oxford
“I would not touch anything Bill Gates with a barge pole for obvious reasons. Mark it”.
