Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister for Aviation has reportedly took a jab of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID19 vaccine on Tuesday, March 30.
This is coming after Fani-Kayode took to his social media handles to condemn the vaccine, describing it as evil and ”Gates killer vaccine”.
Fani-Kayode said if his hero, Donald Trump, who questioned the vaccine can take it, then he too can.
”Despite my initially strong reservations I bowed to sound logic and superior reasoning and took my Covid 19 vaccine.
This is thanks to the counsel of my sister, the distinguished Senator Grace Bent, who convinced me to take it and who emphasised that we must set an example to others.
I also give thanks to my sister the Hon. Patricia Etteh, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is the Chairman of the National Hospital where I took the shot and who not only let me eat all HER lunch in her office before the exercise took place but who also gave us a warm reception and guided us through the whole exercise.
This is a clear case of “never say never”. If anyone had told me that I would take this vaccine up until one month ago I would have said “no way”.
I am glad that I changed my mind and did so because it has brought comfort to many around me who insisted that I must stay healthy and safe at all costs.
I recommend the vaccine to others and I assure you that the National Hospital in Abuja is a great place to take it.
