Buhari receives second jab of COVID-19 vaccine

President Muhammadu Buhari has received his second dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Buhari took the shot at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Saturday, May 29.

The second dose is being administered exactly 12 weeks after the first shot was taken on March 6.

1st News learned that the vaccine on Buhari was administered by the Chief Personal Physician to the President, Dr. Suhayb Rafindadi Sanusi after which he was presented with the e-vaccination card by the executive director of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaib.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has denied allegations suggesting that N2 billion was paid to his office from the recovered funds.

This was contained in a statement issued by Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations to the AGF.

“Prior to the repatriation of all the recovered assets, Nigeria and relevant nations signed a memorandum of understanding; as to what the monies will be put to and the government has been working in compliance with all the provisions of multi-national agreements reached,” the statement clarified.

Malami further noted that it was on the basis of the application of the said funds; in line with the agreements that Nigeria earns a reputation among the international committee of nations which translated into further recoveries.

He said the Federal Government has a designated account at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for all recovered assets; adding that neither he as a person nor as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice; has in any way received any funds from the recovered assets.

Malami, therefore, challenged any person who has any evidence of such payments; to either him or his office, to come out publicly with proofs.
