At least one million doses of coronavirus vaccine will be delivered to Nigeria next week after it was purchased by BUA group.
One of Africa's leading conglomerates, BUA Group has bought one million doses of coronavirus vaccine for Nigeria.
The one million doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 will be delivered next week.
According to a press statement, the vaccines which will be delivered any moment from the coming week were purchased by the leading Foods and Infrastructure conglomerate, through AFREXIM Vaccine programme in partnership with CACOVID.
The move which sets Nigeria on the long lists of the countries awaiting the delivery of the vaccines, however, sets BUA Group as the first company in the country to take such a giant stride in the fight against the ravaging COVID-19 disease.
The group added that the vaccines, which is the first set of vaccines to be delivered to Nigeria since the onset of the pandemic, will be made available to the general public immediately after delivery, and distributed to Nigerians at no cost.
