Veronica Obiano, the wife of the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has received the Coronavirus vaccine in the United States.
Naija News reports that the First Lady of Anambra received the vaccine via a drive-in session in Houston, Texas.
However, the day she received the vaccine was not known. Mrs. Obiano could be seen in a viral video receiving the shot from a medical professional.
This news platform reports that the vaccine is meant to prevent the wife of the governor from contracting the deadly pandemic.
She becomes the second prominent Nigerian to have taken the vaccine outside the shores of the country.
Recall that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar also received the Pfizer/BionTech COVID-19 vaccine.
In a statement released by Atiku’s spokesman, Paul Ibe, said his principal received the vaccine in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Ibe said the former vice president is anxiously looking forward to when Nigerians, especially medical professionals in the frontline and the most vulnerable will be vaccinated in the country.
