According to report reaching oyogist.com, Dr. Ayotunde Fasunla has cautioned Nigerians against embracing conspiracy theories over COVID-19 vaccines.
He told NAN that there was no need to conduct local clinical trials that had already been approved by the WHO.
Fasunla is the chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Oyo State.
He said “However, my sincere personal opinion is that subjecting the vaccines, whose efficacy and safety have been documented, to local clinical trials will waste precious time needed to save people’s lives.
“These vaccines were developed based on science unless we don’t believe in science anymore. These COVID-19 vaccines have been tested on white and black people, even if they are not Nigerians or Africans.”
