The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, on Wednesday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to give the proposed N400 billion meant for the importation of COVID-19 vaccines to poor Nigerians.

Pastor Giwa was reacting to remarks by the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire on money needed to procure COVID-19 vaccine.

Ehanire while appearing before the Senate with his counterpart in the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed had said about N400 billion was needed to procure COVID-19 vaccines for Nigerians.

The Minister had said the vaccine would cost each Nigerian eight US dollars.

Reacting, Pastor Giwa advised the Federal Government to look for ways to tackle hunger among Nigerians instead of spending such a huge amount of money on vaccines.

He said: “They claim that some COVID-19 patients are being discharged from different isolation centres in the country.

“What drugs do they use for them and they can no longer use? It is indeed morally wrong to spend N400 billion on vaccines while millions of Nigerians go to bed hungry.

“The only coronavirus disease in Nigeria now is hunger, and president Buhari must ensure that he proffers a lasting solution to it.”
