Those who produced the COVID-19 vaccines, many of them are rejecting the vaccines. They have not been able to ascertain the efficacy of the vaccines to prevent infection.
They are only saying that the COVID-19 vaccines reduces the severity of attack but not prevention. That means the coronavirus can still attack. You need to still wear facemasks, wash your hands, keep social distancing which they themselves are not keeping.
Forcing people to get vaccinated against their wish tantamount to infringement on the people’s fundamental human rights. People should take vaccines voluntarily and not by coercion or a condition for working for the state.
What Obaseki is doing is coercion. And this is wrong. He has claimed that government must protect the people as his reason for compeling people to take vaccines. That is not protection. Nobody has cried to him because of coronavirus.
He had refused to appoint state executive council since he was elected last year. The people that suffered to make him governor, he refused to appoint them so they could get food to eat. That is better protection.
Fulani herdsmen are disturbing the place with robberies everywhere, he should first of all protect the people against the marauding hersdmen.
His action is calling for crisis in the Edo state. The implementation of the compulsory COVID-19 vaccines vaccination is a violation of the people’s rights. He should rather appeal to the people’s conscience and allow them to take their decisions.
