Ibrahim Gambari, chief of staff to the president, was also vaccinated.
Speaking after receiving his jab, Gambari said: “I want to thank the Permanent Secretary, State House and the frontline healthcare workers in the Clinic for organizing and ensuring this vaccination exercise.
“My experience in receiving this was almost painless and I am just following the footstep of my leader, his Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari who has demonstrated leadership at the highest level by receiving the vaccine, followed by his Excellency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“I want to encourage eligible Nigerians to take the vaccine. It is safe, painless and the benefits are immense.
“It is not just for the individual but the more Nigerians are vaccinated the more we develop the herd immunity which will keep our country safe and our people healthy.”
