Nigerian Government wants to Produce it's Own Vaccines

All talks and no action. How about they create an effective vaccine and then announce it.

Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister of Science and Technology, assured that the Federal Government will partner with the Nile University of Nigeria, Abuja, to produce the corona virus vaccine. It’s been over a year since the virus decided to play host with humans and the Nigerian Government just deemed it fit to produce vaccines.
Good news right? But isn’t it rather late?

My questions are:

  • Why wait till now to produce this when vaccines are already being administered in Nigeria?
  • Is it even possible for Nigeria to achieve such? Do we have the resources to achieve this?
  • And when the vaccine is finally ready, then what? we ship it out to other countries who would have all
    been vaccinated by then?
