The Nigeria Governors Forum has said it will continue to be influenced by science in the fight against COVID-19.
This stance is coming after Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state said the vaccine was meant to kill.
In a communique signed by the chairman, Kayode Fayemi after it’s 24th Teleconference, NGF detached itself from that allegation.
“On the ill-fated pronouncement made by a member of the Forum regarding the COVID-19 vaccine in a national daily, the Forum totally and categorically dissociates itself from the statement.
“The Forum will continue to be informed and guided by science and will ensure that every decision it takes retains public and professional trust and is not compromised by conflicts of interest.
