Barack Obama beg Africa not to accept vaccines from China 4

Barack Obama is asking Africans not to accept the vaccines that will come from America and Europe…

Barack Obama: I’ll be an accomplice if I don’t denounce this evil act white people want to do to Africans, first of all I was born in America but I’m African blood, I’m not going to allow white people to kill Africans with their toxic vaccines, I ask Africans to be smart, and to ensure that coronavirus vaccines do not enter African territories, there is a Machiavellian plan they invent, saying we come to help Africans, or that they will come to kill you, I will let this message be shared everywhere, to awaken African minds so that the vaccines do not arrive in Africa.

RECENT EFFECT OF THE VACCINES FROM CHINA AND EUROPE.  

Following the recent outbreak of covid-19 which originated from China since 2019,the pandemic has lead to the lost of lives of so many people putting Italy as the country with the most cases of Corona virus outbreak. Chinese government following the recent happenings provided vaccines to Italy and some other part of Europe to  help fight the spread of the deadly virus by providing face mask and vaccines. From the point when the Italian government where comberting the spread of the deadly virus to the point where the Chinese government provided help for the Italian government,the death rate suddenly increased leaving so many people in shock as to the extent of this deadly disease.

The Italian government then decided to test the face mask and kits that where sent to them by the Chinese government and it tested positive to the Corona virus. The big question now is why is it that China who brought this deadly disease has recorded a tremendous decrease in the cases of Corona virus while other countries are still struggling to combert this virus without any successful result.

The former president of the United States of America Barack Obama has come out to beg the continent of Africa not to accept any help from China and Europe as those vaccines which they plan on shipping to Africa are conterminated with the Corona virus.

Stella Obasanjo specialist hospital shutdown

STELLA OBASAJO SPECIALIST HOSPITAL SHUTDOWN

Barely two days after the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, announced in a recorded broadcast that the state government had completed the set up of the Stella Obasanjo Hospital as an isolation center for confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, the government has now reversed self with a sudden shutdown of the facility.

According to reports, visibly dissatisfied health workers were driven away from the health facility today on the orders of the government. No explanation has been put forward for the action.

This development further mars the Edo state government’s handling of the coronavirus disease in the state, and raises huge doubts on the additional claims of the governor on available facilities, especially the installation of 28 ventilators, a figure that has been disputed by private organizations and health workers in the state.

Since Edo state recorded its index case of the coronavirus disease, accusations of dishonesty, incompetence, and unaccountability have trailed the government’s preparations. Earlier this week, it was compelled to offer a rebuttal to a widespread claim that it is politicizing relief efforts through local officials who, according to the people and other CSOs, were compiling names and bank account details of only residents expressing support for the political ambition of the governor for the relief packages.

In the same vein, Obaseki’s prolonged isolation after government claims that his test for the coronavirus disease returned negative several days ago, and the public disappearance of his close aides, have heightened concern over the governor’s fitness and ignited rumors of a possible infection spread in the government house.

The shutdown of the Stella Obasanjo Specialist Hospital is said to be part of a scheme

The shutdown of the Stella Obasanjo Specialist Hospital is said to be part of a scheme by the Edo state government to receive funds from donors under the pretext that the state government lacks adequate facility. This is coming days after the governor bragged otherwise.

It is unclear why the Obaseki-administration has adopted this strategy of double-speak and unaccountability which is eroding its integrity and could possibly force donors to turn their back on the state.

Unlike what obtains in other states, items received from donors in Edo are treated with official secrecy, with no one unable to tell what was received and they were deployed.
