Vaccination: If We Could Not Stop Soldiers From Killing Us With Guns, We Shouldn’t Allow Them To Kill Us With Syringes - Ezeife, Anambra Ex-Governor Appeals

Former Anambra state governor, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has called on Biafrans of southeast extraction to boycott the Nigerian military free immunisation exercise in the region, appealing that the people should not allow the soldiers who have killed the youths in the region with the power of gun, to finish up their assignment of extermination with the aid of syringes.

The former governor said this while reacting to the recent tension the military's free medical treatment has caused in Biafra land.

He faulted the approach used by the military in that they refused to follow due process of consulting relevant bodies like the ministers or commissioners of education, commissioners of health and the governors before embarking on the exercise whether their intent was good or evil.

The Sun reports that Ezeife said: "Last week, I was in Anambra, a traditional ruler called me and told me that his people were called to come out on Wednesday for free medical treatment by the military.

"He asked me whether he should allow his people to come out for the exercise. I told him, no, that if we could not stop them from killing with guns, we shouldn’t allow them to kill us with a syringe.

"But on Wednesday, they went to schools in Anambra for the free medical treatment and everybody including school children were running helter-skelter, and parents were running to take back their children in the schools. I appeal to every parent in the Southeast to not allow their children to be treated by the soldiers. We are rich enough to treat our children.

"We are grateful to the governor of Anambra State for approaching the military and advising them to stop the medical treatment of our people until we understand what they want to do.

"The military should have gone to the minister of Education or the commissioner of Education or Commissioner of Health, and the governor before releasing the soldiers in a civilian population. Whether it was an intended good or evil, they approached it in a very wrong way," he added.
