ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Federal Government has rejected the claim that its free medical care resulted in the outbreak of Monkey Pox in some parts of the country.
Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed in a statement issued in Abuja Sunday, described the allegation as ”fake and sinister”.
Alhaji Mohammed asked Nigerians to disregard the report which, he alleged apparently, was being spread by some ”unscrupulous persons to fit into a sinister agenda”.
”The Federal Government has not conducted any free medical service or care in either Bayelsa or Rivers state, as alleged in the fake report being circulated. So that could not have been the cause of the outbreak of Monkey Pox in both states.
“Monkey Pox is a virus found only in monkeys and it is rare in human beings. It belongs to the same family as Chicken Pox and Smallpox.
