The vaccination should not just be limited to civil servants, politicians, and top elites.

More so, Nigerians should not feign ignorance about the devastating effects of the virus.

The federal government through the presidential Covid-19 panel and the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), should ensure that they encourage Nigerians not to slack in maintaining healthy covid-19 protocols such as maintenance of physical distancing, wearing of face mask, and regularly washing of hands with running water or the use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. This is the only way that the fight against the virus can be effective especially as we approach a new year. Covid-19 is real.
