Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that popular Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye, made a laudable charitable gesture as he donated dozens of hand sanitizers and Vitamin C to people in Kogi state.

He said that he is giving out the materials without any religious or political bias. He said it does not matter who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party or All Progressives Congress as everybody will be treated equally.

"So there is no PDP, no APC, it's for everybody. God will heal our land in Jesus name," he said.

In related news, a dedicated team of local researchers said it is working on a Covid-19 vaccine with a modification process that can be completed within three weeks to combat Sars-Cov-2 virus and go through a human trial in six months.

Called the Home-grown Esco Aster, they are working with the United States biotechnology company, Vivaldi Biosciences, as they combine proteins from different viruses to find a cure.
