COVID-19 vaccine will not be compulsory in Nigeria – Minister

Olorunnimbe Mamora

Nigeria’s Minister of State for Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora, has said that the COVID-19 vaccination will not be made compulsory in the country, affirming that nobody will be forced to take the vaccine.

While appearing on Arise News to answer questions on the vaccines, Mamora said nobody will be forced to take any vaccine including the COVID-19 vaccine in the country. 

When also asked if it might become mandatory further down the line, Mamora answered that it would not be a decision of the country if that happens.

The Minister said that just as one can’t travel to some countries without having the Yellow Card certificate, countries might start to demand a COVID-19 vaccination certificate before allowing outsiders in.

Mamora added that Nigeria may be influenced by a demand by countries for a certificate of vaccination, stressing that it “may just be something that will become global”.

No COVID-19 vaccines for under-18 _ PTF

The Presidential Task-Force (PTF) on COVID-19 has said that Nigerians who fall below the age of 18 years will not receive the COVID-19 vaccines in the country. 

Stating this, Minister of State for Health, Dr Olorunnimbe Mamora, said that the Federal Government planned to cover 70% of Nigerians within two years. 

The Minister said that only the National Primary Health Care Development Agency would import and manage the vaccines until further notice, and warned that private organizations were not permitted to procure, distribute and administer the coronavirus vaccines. 

Meanwhile, to ensure the smooth management of the 4 million vaccines the country is getting today being Tuesday, March 2, Mamora said the PTF had approved the TEACH strategy and the electronic immunisation systems. 

Mamora said that the TEACH strategy approach harnesses all benefits of electronic assisted, traditional, and concomitant house-to-house registration to optimise the use of innovative technology. 

He added that the TEACH approach entails the traditional method of vaccinating target populations using desk review of available data sources, identifying vaccination sites and roll-out.

Benue Man Cuts Off Manhood To Control Libido

A Benue man identified as Terhemen Anongo, has cut off part of his genitals to curb his libido. 

Anongo, who is popularly called Doc K or Bob Korna, hails from Gboko in Benue state. 

According to Anongo, he couldn't control his urge and thirst for women. Hence, he decided to follow the advice in the Holy Bible by 'cutting off which causes him to sin'. 

Anongo, who was a medical student in the University of Ibadan, dropped out in his final year in 2007 owing to psychiatric reasons and has since been living alone in his father's house. 

He had chased out other relatives who he accused of being behind his plight. 

However despite dropping out of school, Anongo is highly articulate and still intelligent. 

Anongo who now transports trader's goods in a wheelbarrow to make ends meet, said one thing he couldn't control was his libido. 

To put this in check, he had sought genital surgery from several medical professionals but he was turned down.

Anongo who probably still had a bit of medical experience took matters into his own hands, as he acquired the required medications and tools and proceeded to perform the surgery. 

He chopped off his right testicle after dabbing local anaesthetics on it as he was also determined to remove the left one as well. 

He however stopped due to excessive bleeding. 

He walked to a hospital where he was treated and discharged after being placed on admission for few days. 

Having discharged and still recuperating, he said he won't proceed with removing the remaining testicle.

Donald Trump Appeals Indefinite Suspension From Facebook, Instagram

Donald Trump
                                                                                Immediate past US president, Donald Trump, has reportedly filed a statement appealing his ban from Facebook and Instagram to an independent oversight panel.

Trump submitted a “user statement” to the oversight board which the companies created to oversee bans and suspensions.

In lieu of the appeal, a decision on whether to let the former US president back on the massive social platforms is expected in April.

Trump was indefinitely suspended from Facebook and Instagram which is owned by Facebook on January 7, a day after a crowd of his staunch supporters stormed the Capitol after a speech he delivered in which he insisted the presidential election was stolen from him.

While Trump was also suspended from YouTube, he was permanently banned on Twitter as the latter says it has no plans to rescind or review the ban even if Trump runs for president again.
