Nigerian former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has availed himself for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in United Arab emirate (UAE), Dubai yesterday.
The news was first broken by the publisher of Ovation Magazine, Chief Dele Momodu, who displayed Atikus pictures flanked in a white garment in a nurse's room that looked like a hospital.
Although Dele Momodu did not mention whether the vaccine was administered to Atiku in Dubai, other sources confirmed confirm to Vigil360 that Atiku was in his Dubai apartment this week.
In one paragraph sentence, Dele wrote: “Former Vice President, the Waziri of Adamawa, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar receives Pfizer Covid-19 jab Vaccination”.
