Don't allow soldiers immunise your children - Ezeife tells Ndigbo

Former Anambra state governor, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has called on people from the southeast not to allow Nigerian military immunise their children.

The former governor said this while reacting to the recent panic caused by the military's free medical treatment in Anambra state.


Ezeife said people in Anambra state should not allow the military kill them with syringe, The Sun reports.

He said: "Last week, I was in Anambra, a traditional ruler called me and told me that his people were called to come out on Wednesday for free medical treatment by the military. He asked me whether he should allow his people to come out for the exercise. I told him, no, that if we could not stop them from killing with guns, we shouldn't allow them to kill us with syringe," he said.

Going further, the former governor said the people of the state are capable of taking care of themselves, given the fact that they are rich to do so.


"But on Wednesday, they went to schools in Anambra for the free medial treatment and everybody including school children were running helter-skelter, and parents were running to take back their children in the schools. I appeal to every parent in the Southeast to not allow their children to be treated by the soldiers. We are rich enough to treat our children.

"We are grateful to the governor of Anambra State for approaching the military and advising them to stop the medical treatment of our people until we understand what they want to do.

"The military should have gone to the minister of Education or the commissioner of Education or commissioner of Health, and the governor before releasing the soldiers in a civilian population. Whether it was an intended good or evil, they approached it in a very wrong way," he added.
