Kogi Deputy Governor, Edward David Onoja has continued to deny that Covid-19 is a threat in Nigeria and he took to Twitter to question its existence.
A Twitter user had shared CNN’s tweet that over 300,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the US.
She captioned the tweet:
“Where is that dumb kogi deputy governor please? What’s his handle?”
And Onoja responded:
“Leave the statistics. Do you personally know any citizen, not Public figure, who have died of Covid 19? And have you witnessed any burial of such? Don’t tell me yes based on the High Profile kind of Product advertisement we are seeing.
“If you haven’t seen such. Just seal your mouth. Not every human has frozen minds. Anyways you will collect the Vacine next month in Nigeria. The vaccine surprisingly came almost a year faster than they said it would come.
“We are watching. If they could tell us the Identity of other persons with Covid 19? I’m shocked why they are still concealing the Italian guy.
“However you reason it both with logic, science and common sense. The Covid 19 matter has never added up. Las las they will say the Vaccine was the solution. Matter will end. Till they throw in another one. This time not from fish market but from frog market.”
Nigerians have called him out for his tweets while some agreed with him.
