This was made known by the Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), Faisal Shuaib, at a news briefing in Abuja on Tuesday.

Shuaib said the government may “apply the basic rule of law” against such people because their actions will be endangering the lives of other people.

“The Presidential Steering Committee and the Federal Ministry of Health is mapping out ways of making vaccines more available to all Nigerians.

“Once these vaccines are made available to all Nigerians, we would need to revisit the fairness and liberty that exist around vaccine hesitancy.

“If some individuals refuse to take the vaccine, hence endangering those who have or those who could not due to medical exemptions, then we have to apply the basic rule of law.

“So, you have a right to refuse vaccines, but you do not have the right to endanger the health of others,” Shuaib said.

Recall that Governor Obaseki of Edo state had last week mandated people of the State to take the vaccine.

He warned that, as from September 15, anyone who has not been vaccinated will not be allowed into public places such as banks and worship centres.
