Former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, and his wife, Justice Fati Abubakar, have received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines.
General Abdulsalami and his wife took their first doses of the vaccine jabs on Friday at their hilltop residence in Minna, the Niger State capital.
He appealed to Nigerians not to be afraid to take the vaccine, noting that it had been declared safe for usage by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
The former military leader also called on Nigerians to adhere to the COVID-19 non-pharmaceutical protocols despite taking the vaccines.
