“Gov. Godwin Obaseki is extremely glad that this has been delivered to our state. “We are rolling out the vaccination as fast as we can. I must remind you that we have actually done all the preparations ahead of administration of the vaccines.

“We have trained health care workers even at the local government levels, and other trainings are ongoing.

“We will commence distribution of these vaccines to different locations where they will be administered.

“Frontline workers will be given the first dose of this vaccine and followed by political elite as well as traditional rulers, so we symbolically demonstrate that this vaccine is safe,’’ he said.
