OMICRON: Rich nations selfish for hoarding vaccine for only their citizens – Fmr Gov, Duke

Former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke has said it is selfish and exercise in futility for richer nations to decide to give vaccines mostly to their citizens.

Duke said ignoring other nations who are yet to manufacture the vaccine or import them is the height of insensitity.

The former governor made the remark at the Olumba Olumba Obu Annual Public Lecture in Calabar with the theme Unity in Diversity as Key for Peace and Sustainable Development.

“If you decide that you are only going to vaccinate your citizens and leave others unvaccinated, another variant of the disease will come and it will catch with you.

“If your country is richer than the other countries, you have to help them because what goes around comes around like the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
