“I am delighted to have the COVID-19 Vaccine today. All good and perfect,” Dikko wrote on Twitter.

Recall that on 2nd March 2021, Nigeria received 3.92 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, through the COVAX Facility, a partnership between CEPI, Gavi, UNICEF and WHO.
The arrival marked a historic step towards the goal of ensuring equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines globally, in what will be the largest vaccine procurement and supply operation in history.
This delivery is the first wave of arrivals in Nigeria and more are expected in-country in the coming weeks.
Nigeria on its part, has distributed the vaccines to all 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory to kick-start the vaccination exercise.
