The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) says 3,487,298 Nigerians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Dr Faisal Shuaib, the Executive Director, made the announcement at the start of mass vaccination in Nasarawa State.

Shuaib said as of Friday, November 26, a total of 6,242, 224 eligible persons had received their first doses of the vaccine.

“From the data above, it is clear that Nigeria is still far from reaching its target of vaccinating almost 112 million of its eligible population,” he noted.

Shuaib added that the Federal Government is steeping up vaccination in view of the festive period to avoid risk of virus spread.

“The main aim of the mass vaccination campaign is to vaccinate 50 per cent of Nigeria’s eligible population by January 2022,” the official told reporters.

Some activists and labour leaders have warned that any attempt to increase the price of petrol in the country will compound the suffering of Nigerians.

The Activists gave the warning on Thursday during a protest against the planned increase of petrol price in Ibadan, the Oyo State.

The federal government had recently announced it will not be increasing the price of petrol or removing fuel subsidy until the next 18 months.

But, the labour leaders and activists who spoke during a protest said the federal government only postponed the evil day.

Secretary of the joint Action Front (JAF) in Oyo State, Abiodun Bamigboye, urged Nigerians to rise against any attempt to increase the price of fuel.

He maintained that any attempt to increase the price of fuel would further compound the sufferings of Nigerians.

“We are here to call on the leadership of the NLC, Trade Union Congress and the entire Nigerians that despite the fact that the federal government has postponed the increment of price of petroleum, they should rise up and kick against the increment of price of petroleum.

“Nigerians should not go to sleep because of ...ponement. The federal government is not saying that it will not increase the price. It said that it will not increase it now but will do it later.

“But, we feel that whether now or later, such a decision to increase the price of petroleum will compound the suffering of Nigerians.

“Any attempt to hike the price of petroleum now will further compound the suffering of Nigerians. The cost of living at this material time will be higher.

Convener of All Workers Convergence (AWC), Comrade Andrew Emelieze, advised Nigerians to resist any move to increase the price of petrol.

“We want Nigerians to resist any attempt to increase the price of petrol”
