|Nancy Pelosi: US Congress ends Mask Mandate in the House
We all owe Pastor Enoch Adeboye a whole lot
of gratitude for again broaching an important topic which many could see but
few would dare address – the glaring difference in COVID response in western
nations, and that embraced by Africa, at the behest of these same western
In his monthly thanksgiving sermon beamed round the
world on Sunday May 1, Pastor Adeboye announced that he had just returned from
the European Convention of the RCCG with delegates from over 40 European nations
participating. Despite Church auditoria
being filled to capacity everywhere he preached, Pastor Adeboye said he could
only see perhaps one or two individuals donning COVID-prescribed masks
throughout his trip! Clearly Europe
considers COVID no longer a pandemic, but an endemic disease to be handled
without major disruption of society.
And so, with nearly
2 million deaths attributed to COVID-19 and ongoing arrival of new strains
of the virus, Europe nevertheless has decided it could live with COVID as it
does with other endemic diseases.
Nigeria on the other hand, with barely a little more than 3,000
deaths attributed to COVID in 3 years, still insists there is a pandemic
ongoing, justifying all manner of mandates and restrictions. This is despite the existence of far worse
healthcare situations begging for urgent attention. Pastor Adeboye, for instance, pointed out
during his message, that at a period when COVID was logging fewer than 2,000
deaths in Nigeria, over 200,000 Nigerians were succumbing to Malaria without
anybody raising any alarm! And we know
that the statistics is even worse
for a disease like diarrhoea – all easily preventable with a little more
attention to basic sanitation and provision of potable water.
Very openly, we all saw the world no 1
COVID-marketer, the Biden administration, together with the US Congress
announce the end
of mask mandates in their facilities.
Yet, the mask remains essential paraphernalia at cabinet meetings here
in Nigeria. And while several western
nations are relaxing their travel restrictions, with a US court throwing
out the requirement for masks inside planes, Nigeria is still
digging in, as if waiting for the next
pandemic as prophesied by Bill Gates.
Till date, COVID vaccine is mandated (though,
thankfully, largely unenforceable) in the public service in the country; and with
no serious attempt to collate adverse effects on vaccinated folks, the official
stance of the Faisal Shuaib-led NPHCDA remains the mantra of “safe and
effective” vaccine excepting “few cases of minor pain, fatigue, fever…” and
such stomach-turning nonsense. In reality, though no one asks what could be the
cause of the very many cases of sudden deaths, strokes, and several idiopathic
un-wellness that is ramping up all around us, obvious cases of COVID
vaccine-deaths such as that of Mike
Ajibike still made the headlines, as far back as September last year!
To worsen an already odious case, the
standard COVID jab in Nigeria is the one-shot J&J vaccine. Probably favoured because people weren’t
returning for the 2nd shots required by Pfizer and Moderna.
(Effectively those 2-shots have actually now become four, with the recommended
2 boosters). But it is exactly this same J&J vaccine that the US FDA,
earlier this week (on Thursday 5th May) felt compelled to restrict
its use in the US! Short of an
outright ban, the US FDA ruled that the J&J vaccine should no longer be
administered to any adult (the emergency authorization it had enjoyed only
covered adults anyway) except on specific request by the individual concerned!
Of course, to save face before the global
audience, the US FDA also emphasized that the restriction is not applicable to
people without access to other types of vaccines. And there you already have Nigeria’s
justification for playing deaf and dumb to these latest developments and
proceeding with business as usual.
It would be recalled that Nigeria’s local
regulatory agency, NAFDAC has consistently refused
to conduct her own tests (safety or efficacy) on COVID vaccines. This is expressly based on the protocol
foisted on it by the WHO, which recommends that Nigeria should simply adopt whatever
pronouncements is made by the more “mature” agencies such as the US FDA!
Unable to find further recipients after
already doling out millions of COVID vaccines, Denmark
recently announced she would have to destroy some 1 million doses which were
about expiring. According to the
country’s official health agency the SSI, “… in light of declining demand and lack of rollout
capacity and willingness to be vaccinated in developing countries, it has been
difficult for Denmark and other EU countries to find recipient countries for
the excess doses.” Italy
was much luckier however. Last month, on April 11, Dr Shuaib Faisal on behalf
of Nigeria gratefully received the donation
of over three million doses of J&J vaccines from Italy - with unending
eulogies about their safety and efficacy!
Earlier in February, Faisal had received over 2 million doses from
Europe in what the EU ambassador, Samuela Isopi described
as “part of a global donation of almost 20 million J&J
doses from EU member states to Nigeria"
This situation is even more saddening when
one considers that the primary reason for the US FDA’s position (previously
established in Europe, Japan and elsewhere) has to do with blood clotting. With Nigeria being the world’s capital for
sickle cell anaemia (a condition resulting primarily from polymerization of
haemoglobin molecules in the red blood cells), why on earth should this J&J
vaccine be indiscriminately forced on healthy Nigerians, even without
consideration of their genotype status?
In any case most Nigerians have already developed robust natural
immunity, far superior
to anything any vaccine can confer, having contracted and naturally recovered
from the non-life threatening COVID!
One can only wonder when Nigeria will
eventually decide to take her own destiny in her hand and stop sheepishly
swallowing every public health instruction pushed at her by western
institutions and agencies. That day might never come, however, until the
average Nigerian elite begins to pay attention to this subject, conduct her own
independent studies, and begin to question the western stooges calling the
shots in public health matters in the country!
Actually, the situation playing out with
these experimental COVID vaccines is only a follow-up to the general story on
vaccines in Nigeria. Till date, only few
Nigerians are aware that for several routinely-used vaccines produced in the
developed nations, there are usually two versions. One version meant for the developed countries
has single doses packaged in separate vials, while the other version, meant
largely for the developing nations (read that to mean Nigeria), has multiple
doses packaged in a single vial. For
technical reasons, the multi-dose vials are laced with the chemical thimerosal,
which is comprised of 49.6% ethyl mercury.
Now, everybody used to have this multi-dose
version, until the deadly neurotoxic effects of mercury, even at low doses,
became well established. Thus Europe, over 30 years ago, switched over to the
mercury-free single-dose version, with the US following suit about
a decade later. Yet here we are in
Nigeria, receiving these compromised products and administering them en masse to our own children year in,
year out, till date!
The main justification for the continued use
of mercury-laden vaccines exclusively in developing countries like Nigeria was
based on risk-assessment exercises carried out by Bill Gates-funded GAVI and the WHO. Clearly the western nations and her
institutions are always ready to think and prescribe for nations too indolent
to do so for themselves.
As to what the western world really thinks of
children from the developing nations, one only needs to recall the reply
recently-demised Madeleine Albright gave when asked in 1996 to assess the
justification of the regime-change mission against Saddam Hussein, leading to the
death of half a million Iraqi children. Calmly, the then Secretary of State
replied: “we think the price is worth it.” And why
not, after all these are not American children!
May the Lord open the eyes of the Nigerian
elite to the incredible self-administered evils that continue to fester all
around us – in our uncritical embrace of the mass-vaccination doctrine!
Till next week, by God’s grace.
