Former Senator that represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Assembly, Sen. Shehu Sani has called on the Federal Government to provide power supply for the preservation of the COVID-19 vaccine before paying a whooping sum of N400 billion to the manufacturing company.
Senator sani said that provision of power is a priority as available information shows that the vaccine can only be preserved at a temperature of minus 70 degree celsius.
Sani who gave the advise to the Federal government via his official Twitter account @ShehuSani on Monday pointed out that if the vaccine will remain potent at room temperature then the federal government has nothing to worry about.
He said that a temperature of minus 70 degree Celsius presupposes constant power supply which has remained a big challenge in the country.
