The government of Ekiti State on Tuesday received COVID-19 vaccines from the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The Governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi in a statement on his Twitter account, said he and his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, would receive the vaccine publicly today (Wednesday).
The statement said, “Ekiti State receives doses of #COVID19 vaccines. Governor Fayemi @kfayemi and his deputy would be leading the rest of the state as they receive their vaccination publicly on Wednesday, March 10th.”
“Risk Communications officials are also being trained to tackle misinformation across the 16 LGAs of the state ahead of the rollout of the vaccines in Ekiti.”
“Ekiti continues to lead as a model sub-national government with integrated and holistic responses to tackle COVID-19 and cushion its economic impact on the people.”
This is coming after the Kwara State government also announced that it received the vaccine from the federal government.
