Gov Wike reveals why he took his COVID-19 vaccine quietly


The Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has disclosed that he has taken the COVID-19 vaccine.

This dispels speculation that he refused to take the jab.

Wike, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant, Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said: “Some people said that I did not take my vaccine. I did, but am not into public shows. Taking a vaccine is not undertaking any project for anybody to see that you have taken a vaccine.

“It has turned to politics. Assuming what I am taking is not the vaccine? Yes, I can pretend and then they will put it on the news that I have taken the vaccine.

“Nigerian likes to play politics in everything. They will call the press, Governor this has taken, Governor that has taken. But let them not tell you that I have not taken it. I did my own in the Government House Clinic quietly. So I don’t need to begin to announce it to the world.”
