The Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, the apex Youth body of Ohanaeze Ndigbo says the recently imported AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines is not safe for human consumption until scientifically proven by Igbo medical experts around the globe.
OYC says the importation of Covid-19 Vaccine has raised concern among some well-meaning Nigerians especially the Igbo extractions.
The council further warned that the vaccines should not be distributed unless it is duly certified safe by Igbo medical experts.
Speaking with newsmen in Enugu, on Friday, the National President of Ohanaeze Youth Council(OYC), Comrade Igboayaka O. Igboayaka described the sudden introduction of the vaccine within a fraction of one year of Covid-19 pandemic as a suspicious move.
He said: “The restriction of a particular vaccine to some European countries call for doubts, and why it should be brought down to African, Nigeria and Igbo land is a master conspiracy the conspirators have not unveiled to us, therefore Covid19 vaccines remain medically unsafe to us until it’s proven by Igbo medical expert around the globe.”
Comrade Igboayaka urged Igbo leaders and Nigerians in general to ‘look before they leap’, stressed that any attempt, whatsoever by any government or organisation to compel Ndigbo to accept the said vaccine would in no doubts spring up skeptism among the race, as such, he pointed out, would not be treated with ‘a pinch of salt’.
“Any attempt to force Ndigbo by any government both local or international to take the vaccine will amount to our doubt about the vaccine and it will be a clear indication that there is a conspiracy from somewhere against our survival and multiplication.”
Comrade. Igboayaka noted that Africa particularly Nigeria recorded a low rate of the effect of the pandemic but wondered “why the vaccine is being circulated in African countries, with focus on Nigeria even more than the USA, Italy, China, UK, Canada, Germany and other parts of the European countries where the pandemic was prevalent.
Covid19 vaccine “must be certified safe by indigenous Igbo medical scientist before such could be administered to any Igbo person.
“Covid19 vaccine that will be used by Ndigbo shouldn’t be certified medically safe by USA, Russia, China UK or Germany rather Germany, USA, UK, China and co should used the vaccines they certified while Africans/Igbos should use the vaccine they certified.
“Also, there must be a classified evidence that the vaccine they want an American to take must be evidently proven by our Igbo scientist that it’s the same vaccine they brought to Nigeria”, Comrade gboayaka thundered.
