Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has lamented that people were making the COVID-19 vaccination a political issue.
He stated this when he received the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Prof. Darlington Obaseki, at the Government House in Benin City.
The governor asked the residents to get vaccinated and ensure compliance with preventive protocols against the spread of the virus.
“I am 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,” he added.
“Go to any of our isolation centers and see what is happening to people.”
