The National Assembly joint committee on health has asked the minister of health not to spend the 10billion naira released to his Ministry, for the supply of Covid-19 vaccine in the country.

Chairman Senate committee on health, Ibrahim Oloriegbe said that the 10 billion Naira was appropriated for a different purpose insisting that other parties involved are yet to meet their part of the MOU.
