President Muhammadu Buhari-led government on Thursday noted that it is working hard to ensure that Nigerians have access to Coronavirus vaccines when it becomes available.
The development was disclosed by the Chairman of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, during the daily briefing on Thursday in Abuja.
Mustapha while speaking on the vaccine said, “globally, the world continues to pursue the search for a vaccine with over one thousand trials ongoing and different claims of levels of success.”
“We note particularly the announcement by the President of Russia on the breakthrough in the development of a vaccine even as we study the developments.”
“Fighting the pandemic successfully will take a global effort, and Nigeria will not be left out whenever and wherever progress is made.”
“However, the health and safety of Nigerians will always remain our priority in the pursuit of a solution,” he said
