Recall that Kemi Filani News reports that World Health Organisation, WHO, has withdrawn Nigeria from bidding for the Pfizers vaccines for not meeting up with the standard 70 degrees Celcius temperature storage capacity for storing the vaccine.

Nigeria was among the four African countries out of the eleven who bided for the vaccines that were selected to be given, but the lack of proper storage for the vaccines has kicked the nation out of the list.

WHO said it couldn’t afford to lose the Pfizers vaccines, hence the need to deny Nigeria and some other African countries access to bid and buy the vaccine.
