Speaking during an emergency meeting of Northern governors and Northern Traditional Leaders Committee on Primary Healthcare delivery in Kaduna, Professor Adewole said the amount involved was way out of what the country could afford and suggested the setting up of Epidemics Funds to address such challenges.
His words: “The vaccine is scarce and very expensive. If we are to vaccinate people in the affected states, we will need to vaccinate about 21 million people. That will cost us about $1 billion dollars. That is a huge amount of money.
“If we want to vaccinate in local governments that are most affected, it will cost about $6.5 million. We must re-strategise. Part of the suggestion is to have an immunisation trust fund.”

*That amount is small compared to all the monies recovered by the EFCC.they should dip their hands into the account and use it since we are in an SOS situation ...Mscheew!
