Faisal Shuaib, the boss of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency said, President Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbanjo will be among the first to take the approved Covid-19 vaccine when it gets to Nigeria by the end of January.

About 100,000 doses of the vaccine will be brought to the country soon and mainly health workers who are in the frontline in the fight against Covid-19, old people and political leaders in the country will be the first set of people to take the vaccine.

Faisal said, apart from the President, political leaders in the country like the Secretary to the government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha will have to take the vaccine in the public so as to create public awareness.

He said the politicians will be the first to be given the vaccine because no country will want its strategic leaders to die due to the virus.

He also said the country’s Agency for food and Drug Control will have to certify the vaccine before they will start to use it in Nigeria.
