In April 2020, the former minister had described the COVID-19 vaccine as an evil that would “result in millions of deaths”.
I’ve warned about the dangers of the vaccine that will be proposed as the answer to #COVID19.This will result in millions of deaths.Nig. is trying to pass a law that will make it compulsory to take that vaccine as part of the world depopulation agenda.This is EVIL!#stopncdcbill

In May 2020, while more vaccine options were being developed for the coronavirus, the former minister also condemned the development in another post on his Twitter handle, adding that people were being turned into “guinea pigs”.
WHO are set to begin Covid 19 vaccine trials in our country. EVIL! Not only have our people been turned into Guinea pigs to test Gates’ killer vaccine but our leaders are also passing a law which will make the use of that evil vaccine compulsory.What a mess! I weep for Nigeria.

However, on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode, received the vaccine shot, saying he to bow to sound logic, superior reasoning and advice from people around him.
Fani-Kayode posted photos and videos of him taking the jab at National Hospital Abuja on Tuesday, March 30.
Speaking about his change of stance, he stated;
Despite my initially strong reservations I bowed to sound logic and superior reasoning and took my Covid 19 vaccine today.
This is thanks to the counsel of my sister, the distinguished Senator Grace Bent, who convinced me to take it and who emphasised that we must set an example to others.
I also give thanks to my sister the Hon. Patricia Etteh, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is the Chairman of the National Hospital where I took the shot and who not only let me eat all HER lunch in her office before the exercise took place but who also gave us a warm reception and guided us through the whole exercise.
Her whole team and staff at the hospital were simply wonderful, highly efficient and very supportive and consequently the whole exercise went smoothly and was very pleasant.
This is a clear case of “never say never”. If anyone had told me that I would take this vaccine up until one month ago I would have said “no way”.
I am glad that I changed my mind and did so because it has brought comfort to many around me who insisted that I must stay healthy and safe at all costs.
I recommend the vaccine to others and I assure you that the National Hospital in Abuja is a great place to take it.
Covid 19 is real and has killed so many people, including dozens that I knew and loved, over the last one year.
Let us fulfill all righteousness, take all necessary precautions, employ all legitimate means to fight it, follow the protcols, sanitise regularly, maintain social distancing, stay healthy, stay safe, stay blessed and live long to take care of our children and loved ones.
Since Nigeria took delivery of the vaccine, prominent leaders, including President Muhammadu Buhari, have received shots of the vaccine in public.
