A’Ibom orders 1m doses of COVID-19 vaccines



THE governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, said his administration had ordered one million doses of vaccines for the state.

  Gov. Emmanuel advised citizens to ignore rumours and go for vaccination against COVID-19 while adhering strictly to safety and prevention protocols in order to stay safe. 

  The governor said these during a family thanksgiving service organised by the Permanent Secretary, Government House, Dr. Nathaniel Adiakpan which was held at St. Paul’s Cathedral, The African Church, Ibibio South Diocese, Afaha Ubium, in Onna Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State.

  He said “Please I want to raise a strong warning, whether you believe it or not, this COVID-19 is real, please, protect yourself, and don’t take it for granted, simple hygiene can help you a lot.

  “We are also ordering new sets of vaccines, don’t mind what they are writing about vaccines, take them. One million vaccines should be coming in, please let people take especially if you are above 40 years.” 

  Emmanuel advised his administration’s critics to stop demarketing the state by claiming that his administration is going to leave behind a huge and unsustainable debt profile, assuring that his administration is working tirelessly to create and sustain wealth for posterity.

  ”I read in the papers, people abusing me and saying that the governor is going to leave loan debt for the state. I, Udom Emmanuel, leave loan for which state?

  “The state that I am trying to reduce its financial burden and manage its resources? If there is something we want to do, we want to leave positive net earnings for the state.
