Governors to be administered COVID-19 vaccines on TV – Fayemi



The Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, said on Friday many governors in the country would be administered the COVID-19 vaccines on a live telecast to assure Nigerians on the safety of the vaccines.

The governor, who disclosed this to State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said the governors had accepted to receive the vaccines live on television.

He said: “We too will like to demonstrate to our citizens that we believe that the vaccines would work.
