Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said it was saddening that people are making the COVID-19 vaccination a political issue.

Obaseki stated this when he received the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Prof. Darlington Obaseki, who was on a courtesy visit to the Government House in Benin City.

Stressing the need for residents to get vaccinated and ensure compliance with preventive protocols against the spread of the virus, Obaseki said: “I’m saddened when I see people not protecting themselves against COVID-19.

“We are not making vaccination compulsory but for now, it is the best way to protect yourselves and protect the people around you. It is so sad to see people making it a political issue.

“Go to any of our isolation centres and see what is happening to people,” he worried.

The governor reassured that his government would sustain reforms in the healthcare system to reposition the state as the country’s medical hub.

“Our experience from the outbreak of coronavirus taught us something that the healthcare system in Edo is one. God forbid you to fall ill, or you have an emergency, it won’t matter where you are treated. At that point, you don’t care if it is a federal, state, or religious institution, as long as you get cured,” the governor noted.
