  • Why Nigeria can’t develop vaccines for lassa, typhoid fevers—Prof Agwale
  • ENUGU—A Virologist, Prof Simeon Magaji
    Agwale has stated that Nigeria has the capacity
    to develop vaccines for tropical diseases such
    as lassa fever, typhoid fever, malaria and the
    likes.
    Agwale lamented that Nigerians are dying of
    illnesses that the country has the capacity to
    eradicate or at least combat successfully,
    stressing that there was no reason for
    Nigerians to suffer such sicknesses when they
    can produce vaccines for ailments that are
    peculiar to the country and her surroundings.
    He noted that such vaccines cannot be
    developed in Europe or America since they
    don’t suffer the diseases.
    Agwale who spoke weekend, as a guest lecturer
    at the 12th Public Health lecture series of the
    Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists of
    Nigeria, MLSCN, identified “lack of political will
    by government as responsible for the inability
    to establish a vaccine factory in Nigeria.”
