It is sad people are playing politics with COVID-19 vaccination – Gov. Obaseki

Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, said it is disheartening people are playing politics with COVID-19 vaccination.

The governor made this known when he received the Chief Medical Director of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Prof Darlington Obaseki, who was on a courtesy visit to the Government House in Benin City.

He reiterated that it is pertinent for residents to get vaccinated and ensure compliance with safety protocols against COVID-19, Obaseki said, “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.

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

The governor gave the reassurance that his administration would sustain reforms in the health care sector to reposition Edo State as the country’s medical hub.

“Our experience from the outbreak of coronavirus taught us something that the health care system in Edo is one. God forbid you 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.

Earlier, the UBTH CMD commended the governor for the support which the hospital management had enjoyed under his leadership.
