Okonjo Iweala: Nigeria Might Get COVID-19 Vaccines From January 2021 by NwaNimo1(m): 11:37pm On Dec 09, 2020
A statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Wednesday.

The statement quoted Mrs Okonjo-Iweala as disclosing this at a closed-door meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama in Abuja.

“As long as one person has it in the world, no one is safe. And that is why poorer countries, lower middle-income countries like Nigeria, need to get it as quickly as possible,” she was quoted as saying.

Mrs Okonjo-Iweala is currently the African Union Special Envoy on mobilising international economic support for the continental fight against COVID-19 and Nigeria’s candidate for the Office of the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation.

She disclosed that the international initiative involved the World Health Organisation, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), GAVI and the international community, to get vaccines delivered to developing and poorer countries, in an affordable manner and quickly.

According to her, the Pfizer vaccine and the AstraZeneca one were presently being negotiated so that poor countries do not have to stand in a queue behind rich countries.


The former finance minister described Africans as blessed, for not having the same incidence rate of COVID-19 like other continents, but warned African nations against complacency.

Mrs Okonjo-Iweala recalled that a platform called the COVAX facility had been developed with 186 countries on board, saying that the side interested in serving the poor countries had 92 countries, for which resources have been raised to try and get the vaccines to them quickly.

“So, the Pfizer vaccine, the AstraZeneca, those are being negotiated now so that poor countries don’t have to stand in line behind rich countries.

“So, we hope they are starting by the end of January. We will be able to reach these countries, including most of the African countries, Nigeria included, will be able to get access to some of these vaccines.

Initially, it will be for frontline health workers, followed by some other target groups – older people, those with underlying conditions and then, from there, the rest of the population. I think the COVAX facility can cover maybe 20-23 percent of the population by the end of next year,” Mrs Okonjo-Iweala said.

Yes, those Chinese guys they told you are Covid team were contracted to install 5G network while government caged you indoors.

Now the vaccine works with the 5G and will be used to turn you into a zombie.

Since African government doesn't know what next to do in their governance, they result to embrace covid-19 which is never our problem.

Since this scheme is also automatically embezzlement gateway, they focus on it & don't want let go of the lies.

We have malaria & other diseases everywhere which are killing poor masses everyday, these people doesn't care.

Covid-19 is not African disease, get it into your skull, there are more evidence to that during the waves of the diseases from develop country, but our media keep a deaf eye because of threaten by Nigerian government & they blend together to instruct fear into heart of gullible Nigerian.

It's not your fault if you believe thousands of people dies of this media virus, it's what Nigeria government in conjunction with media projected, it's a new cashcow.

So lot of people with different ailments that are tag covid-19, some they paid them, some they threaten them, most government hospital play along, and they are projected as covid-19 patients by the biggest SCAM agency called NCDC.

Edo election, Endsars gathering without facemask & social distance, but no one get headache or fever, talkless of covid-419, but NCDC dish out their computer generated figure everyday.

Nigeria government spend so much money to make false believe, that there is a virus call covid-19 in the country & people are dieing somewhere only know by Nigerian government and agency.

We all shouting when read on media bandit killing scores farmers & their corpses display on TV for burial, remember thousands are claimed to die from the covid-19 but no one knows anyone that knows someone that know anyone that knows someone that know anyone that has the viruses

You can quantify the intelligence quotient of a nation or population just with the advent of this Covid 19 vaccine. Where I currently reside in one of the western countries, most of the population especially the younger generation are sceptical of the vaccine and some say they won't take it if it is made voluntary...now MOST of the people I meet here say they are having doubt because the vaccine was rushed, they have the knowledge that from antecedence vaccines take longer duration of passing through series of stages before final approval and administration to masses. As a result of the shorter duration of approving this vaccine they doubt the efficacy of the vaccine and some say they will wait and see the repercussion on those that have taken it first before taking their shot.

Now here in my country Nigeria there are several scepticism and theories about the vaccine, one of the scepticism about the vaccine is that BILL GATE want to use the vaccine on people so that he can control the world population. Another theory is that ''They'', in many cases I have asked these conspiracy theorist who are the THEY but they kept it at they...so these theorist believe the vaccine is a tool for mass control and population control. Another theorist in my country Nigeria believe is the coming of Anti-christ and this vaccine together with 5g network is the first stage of the drama.

Now with these state of mind you can guess what year or century we will think and start manufacturing jet engines, space rockets, robots, 5G technology, twin technologies, jet fighters, aircraft carriers...the list goes on and on.

Is it possible that without evidence of being so vaccinated, a person might not be able to travel internationally?
