● Most vaccines that are used in sub-Saharan Africa are from Europe and America. Africa has never had the capacity to manufacture them to meet her needs.

● Poisoning needs not come with anti-Covid-19 vaccines. It could be from yellow fever, polio, cerebrospinal meningitis, measles, and other vaccines if there was a plot to harm Africa.

● Those who think the anti-Covid-19 vaccines are to harm Africa should also realize that hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin D, ivermectin and whatever else is used in the chemotherapy of Covid-19 are largely from the Western world. The drugs could have been laced with chemicals to kill Africans. Testing of imported medicines is still poor in most of Africa. The intention to harm should not be narrowed to vaccines only.

● Although there exist competent scientists in Africa, they are handicapped by lack of funds and basic amenities that drive research. Even when there are breakthroughs, there are hardly funds and will power to use them for the common good.

● Bill Gates and his wife have through their foundations been solving health and socioeconomic problems for resource-poor countries in Africa. It is irreconcilable that a couple that spends so much money to sustain life in Africa will spend money again through a single vaccine to kill Africans.

● It is difficult to imagine that all the Black scientists involved in the development of the vaccines are cooperating with their Caucasian counterparts to harm Afticans.

● It is difficult to imagine that all the Black scientists involved in the development of the vaccines are cooperating with their Caucasian counterparts to harm Afticans.

● Adverse effects monitoring is a never-ending process for any medicine. It is a post-marketing surveillance process (pharmacovigilance) on the medicine. Keep in mind that it took several decades of use before aspirin was associated with Reye's syndrome. So, we might never know all we need to about any medicine, these controversial vaccines inclusive.

● Certain medicines may be donated to Africa and poor regions. Their prices may also be reduced and these medicines are marked "Not to be sold/used in…..". This practice that is currently for redemsivir is a pricing policy and it is not new.

● Until Africans do thorough introspection, they will continue to depend on the Western World. A man that cannot help himself must be ready to be subjected to anything by his helper. So, regardless of the noise being made, Africans will ultimately take the vaccines.

● The points above do not counter the argument that the Western world does deliberately hold Africa down in socioeconomic ways. That debate is for another day.

● African leaders should ensure that like other medicines, the vaccines must meet the irreducible minimum requirements for quality before they are deployed. The tests are prescribed by the appropriate regulatory agency. I have no doubts that NAFDAC will ensure this.

  1. You are totally right Sir! The few questions, if there should be even any, lie in the personality of the person spoken about, in this case, Bill Gates. That is, if he has suddenly moved from the path of philanthropism to Mass suicide? This too, is even worthless to ask, cause if there is one who should clearly understand the vanity of life on earth and futility of suicide, it is he Bill Gates. Again, we, the Aficans, should ask ourselves, between us and he, who has benefitted more from each other? So I join my tiny voice to yours, sir, to admonish us to grow in our reasoning, wisdom and understanding of our society, and other wise, so we can accurately decipher caucassian conspiracy theories.
