Nigerian scientists will soon produce coronavirus vaccine — FG

Onu disclosed this in Abuja when he received members of the National Bioethics Committee  in his office.

The Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, Thursday  said the Dr Oladipo kolawole-led team of Adeleke University Ede would soon complete the preliminary research and production of a vaccine for coronavirus.

Onu disclosed this in Abuja when he received members of the National Bioethics Committee  in his office.

He commended the researchers from Adeleke University for putting Nigeria’s name on the global list of vaccine producers, saying indigenous vaccine production would help Nigeria handle its own challenges.

He said: “Nigeria will no longer rely on other country for the production of vaccines, as every country wants to produce their own. Nigeria’s Interest first before looking for others interests”.
