A Position Paper by

the Nigerian COVID Response Alliance (

 January 2022




1. There is no justification for the ongoing mandating of COVID-19 vaccines in Nigeria.  Not only are the supposed benefits vague, the costs in various dimensions are steep and unacceptable.  Patriotic Nigerians must rise to help extricate our Government from the manipulative clutches of foreign and private interests who are the barely-hidden forces behind these mandates.  We document here some grounds why the mandates should be resisted and rejected.


2. The Vaccines being mandated in Nigeria are all EXPERIMENTAL and have NOT been approved for regular use by any scientific/medical authority. All they have is Emergency Use Authorization.  Furthermore in a demonstration of an incredible level of audacious opacity, details of the actual contents of the vaccines, together with the Contracts with the pharmaceutical companies for their acquisition, are shrouded in utter secrecy. Not only ethics, but local and international laws DEMAND that such products be not mandated.


3. Furthermore, even for approved medical products, it is expected that would-be recipients would be adequately informed by the prescribing physicians, of both benefits and risks associated with the product.  The contraindications should be made clear, and alternatives should be presented and made available.  Mandatory vaccination, and that of an unapproved product in particular, shamelessly violates these sacrosanct  norms of modern science.   Indeed, the Fact Sheets for the COVID vaccines specifically require that would-be recipients be informed of some vaccine contents, such as polyethylene glycol (PEG), which could be fatal to people allergic to it.  The simple fact is that most Nigerians are not even aware of their allergy status with respect to such chemicals!  The presumed “consent” of Nigerians who receive these vaccines is therefore certainly far from being “informed”.

4. The Vaccines are demonstrably NOT efficacious.  Hence the need for unending “booster” doses, while the “fully vaccinated” must continue to observe same protocols as they were before the jab.  New virus variants are known to evolve in response to mass vaccination, and are not by any means attributable to the unvaccinated population as is being suggested in certain quarters. There is no country/territory anywhere that has overcome COVID-19 via vaccines.  On the other hand, a country like  Gibraltar with 100% vaccination rate continues to witness the highest severity  level of COVID 19, while countries/territories that changed course from sole-dependence on mass vaccination to embrace other alternatives (like Croatia,  Denmark, Norway, Japan, the Provinces of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi in India, and a number of states  in the US) are all witnessing dramatic improvement in their COVID situations – often within weeks of such decisions!  The UK, Czech Republic, Netherlands, and Ireland are the latest countries to join the wagon of those dropping the clearly unprofitable vaccine mandate.

5. The Vaccines have been conclusively proven to be NOT safe.  Not only are the scientific basis for numerous adverse effects now well established and published in reputable scientific and medical journals, the existence of such adverse effects are already being adequately DEMONSTRATED from public health data available globally.  Such effects include acute ones such as myocarditis, blood clotting, and death, as well as longer-term ones including adverse reproductive outcomes and Cancers.


6. The financial costs of the COVID vaccines are unjustified, especially in the face of other more compelling public health challenges Nigeria uniquely faces. Credit facilities offered us to facilitate our response to COVID (largely procurement, storage, and deployment of COVID vaccines) are now well in excess of 3 billion dollars, far  exceeding our total annual health budget.

7. The value of Natural Immunity is significant and CANNOT be discountenanced as is being attempted by the vaccine pushers.  It is now well-established that naturally-acquired immunity against COVID-19 is far superior to vaccine-acquired immunity – in terms of efficacy, robustness and duration.   As has been established in the case of measles and smallpox for example, people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have consequently acquired natural immunity should not be required to receive a COVID jab again.


8.  Other proven solutions exist for COVID-19, despite amazing desperate efforts to demonize and proscribe these alternatives.  Articles published in the world’s topmost medical journals to push such conspiracy have been later shown to be pure forgery and unceremoniously retracted.  Nevertheless policy decisions taken on the strength of these fake scientific data continue to be unabashedly used to push mandatory vaccination and associated measures.


9.  Even those who have received the vaccine should join the fight to reject a Mandate. The issues involved go way beyond public health.  Wars have been fought and millions of lives sacrificed to defend ideals such as democracy, rule of law, and Faith. It is hard to explain the dogged determination to push this vaccine globally on all human beings, without thinking of some deep hidden agenda. Data available in OFFICIAL public records show that precisely-defined relevant patents had been filed years before the COVID pandemic ever broke out, or the virus involved identified!  Resisting a patently unwarranted mass deployment of the vaccines will not only help limit the public health concerns involved, it would prevent various extensive abuses possible in any future attempt to weaponize the vaccine.
