The warning was issued by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in Abuja while giving a daily briefing of the Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19.
“In the absence of vaccine or drugs, Non-Pharmaceutical Intervention NPI remains the most effective way to contain the spread of the disease and protect Nigerians.
“By the way, you must have heard of the vaccine being hawked in Kano which is called ‘Covid-19 Vaccine’. It is yellow in colour. It is not certified by anybody. Please, do not patronize the hawkers.
