We’ve No Proof COVID-19 Causes Infertility, Says NPHCDA

Published

on

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) says no scientific evidence suggesting COVID-19 vaccination can cause infertility in men or women.

The NPHCDA executive director Faisal Shuaib, on Thursday, explained that the COVID-19 vaccination among populations of reproductive age was safe.

”All available COVID-19 vaccines have demonstrated high efficacy among their respective clinical trial endpoints. Additionally, a growing body of evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people are less likely to have symptomatic infection or transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others,” said Mr Shuaib.

He called on obstetrician-gynaecologists and other women’s health care practitioners to lead by example by being vaccinated and encouraging eligible patients to be vaccinated as well.

“We recommend that pregnant individuals and lactating individuals be vaccinated against COVID-19. While a conversation with a clinician may be helpful, it is not a requirement prior to vaccination, as this may cause unnecessary barriers to access,” added Mr Shuaib. “Pregnancy testing is not a requirement to receiving any of the approved COVID-19 vaccine by the World Health Organization(WHO).”

The NPHCDA boss urged obstetrician–gynaecologists to address ongoing questions and concerns and offer subsequent office visits by pregnant and lactating individuals across the country.

“Expected side effects should be explained as part of counselling patients, including that these are a normal part of the body’s reaction to the vaccine and developing antibodies to protect against COVID-19 illness,” he said.

Mr Shuaib explained that COVID-19 vaccines might be administered simultaneously with other vaccines within 14 days of receiving another vaccine.

Tinubu Reading January Newspaper In October, This Photo Is A Disappointment – Omokri

Published

on

Nigerian socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has taken to the microblogging platform, Twitter, to mock the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congres (APC), Bola Tinubu, over a viral photo showing him reading a January 2022 newspaper in October 2022.

Recall that Tinubu had posted a photo of himself earlier on the bird app reading a newspaper.

Tinubu’s photo which is perceived to be an attempt by the presidential hopeful to dispel rumours about his health status has since generated a barrage of reactions on social media.

Joining the host of others in making a mockery of the presidential candidate, Omokri on Thursday afternoon wrote: “This story was published on January 23, 2022. First an old video of your riding an exercise bike. Now, an old photo of your reading ab outdated newspaper? Bola, you should definitely fire the propagandist handling your Twitter account.”

2023: No State Or Community Will Be Left Behind If I’m Elected President, Peter Obi Assures Nigerians

Published

on

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has promised that no state or community will be left behind in moving Nigeria forward.

He noted that if elected, his administration will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of security and governance. “We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community,” he said.

Peter Obi disclosed this in his speech at Harvard University.

Obi said he will ensure that in moving Nigeria forward, no state or community will be left behind. Pursuant to its statutory responsibility to protect, our government will promote equity in power and resource sharing.

“The federating units will enjoy discernible autonomy. Resources will also be shared equitably. A higher derivation paid to oil or solid minerals-producing states will not be tantamount to other states not receiving federal allocations that should keep them viable.

“We will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of the security sector and governance. We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community.

“We will build a compact, robust and ready mobile police force with rapid response deployment capabilities; and legislate the establishment of state police based on community policing. We will raise the population-to-police officer ratio to a higher level” he added.

On Nigeria’s role in Africa and insecurity, he added that we must think seriously about a leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility, and commitment. Accordingly, we will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, and the security of lives and properties.

He added his administration will ensure that they have these assets in place and stress asset optimization.

“We will strike a strategic balance that allows us to promote and protect national interest while meeting our ECOWAS obligations.

“We will rebuild Nigeria’s military power, promote economic growth, and enhance its technological prowess with a view to improving Nigeria’s diplomatic influence in sub-regional, regional and global affairs.

He added that restoring leadership will require that we reassert proactively, Nigeria’s leadership role in African affairs through constructive engagement, peacekeeping duties, and using existing sub-regional and regional forums as well as bilateral platforms for dialogue on current and emerging challenges. We will continue to enhance our sphere of influence via peacekeeping, and trade and investment initiatives.
