Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has warned Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello to tread with caution, over his recent statement suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines are being introduced to kill the masses.
Recall that Governor Bello in a recent address stated that the COVID-19 vaccines being produced in less than one year are used to introduce new diseases that will kill many.
Reacting to Bello’s claim, Governor Fayemi, who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, appealed to his Kogi counterpart, urging him not to risk the lives of the citizens.
He made this appeal during an interview on Channels Television Politics Today program on Thursday evening.

He also added that there is a need to respond to the challenges that have emanated from the pandemic.
