Dr Betta Edu the Commissioner for Health in Cross River and National Chair of Commissioners for Health in Nigeria has been remembered for her alleged role in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic in Nigeria.
According to Simon Utsu a public affairs analyst popular in Cross River, there is an irony in Dr Edu being previously in the frontline of campaign which claimed the state was Covid-19 free but, being currently advocating for the distribution of the 58, 840 doses of AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccines in her state.
Utsu’s words, ‘58,840 doses of AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccines, distributed from the FG’s warehouse, arrived Cross River state yesterday. This was made known yesterday by the commissioner of Health, Dr Betta Edu (pictured).
‘The irony of it is that, about same time last year, same commissioner was at the forefront of a campaign that claimed the state was covid-19 free. Good to see her championing this vaccination drive. Some of us have been vindicated.’
He said this less than 24 hours ago on his Facebook timeline.
Dr Edu’s Cross River was reportedly reputed for not having Covid-19 incidents until the state lifted the embargo on entrance into the state through her various national and international borders with other subnational and national entities.
