There is concern over the silence of the Senate, to the alarm raised by Chairman, Global Pro-life Alliance, GPA, Prof (Dr) Philip Njemanze, on the dangers and health risks of HPV vaccine to Nigerians
The Senate, this newspaper gathered, is yet to respond or issue a public statement to the comprehensive and detailed report by Dr. Njemanze, where he highlighted the health risks of the vaccine.
Dr. Njemanze, a pro life advocate had in August, 2023, wrote to the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, highlighting the risks of the HPV Vaccine.
The summary of the letter by Dr. Njemanze to the Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio reads
“We, as a pro-life advocates and Catholic doctors, aim to bring the attention of the Nigerian Senate to the concerning issues of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in Nigeria, sponsored by specific international agencies and foundations. There is a significant concern regarding potential health risks, including the potential for abortions Ludington infertility, particularly among young Nigerian girls
” It is concerning that this project may have a hidden agenda, aiming to induce infertility in Nigerian girls, leaving them with limited or no protection against HPV infections”
The summary of the letter reads:
“We, as pro-life advocates and Catholic doctors, aim to bring the attention of the Nigerian Senate to the concerning issue of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in Nigeria, sponsored by specific international agencies and foundations. There is a significant concern regarding potential health risks, including the potential for abortions and infertility, particularly among young Nigerian girls.
“We wish to highlight a groundbreaking new study that we have attached to this communication. This study reveals that the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix, currently administered to girls in Nigerian schools without a doctor’s prescription, have been proven ineffective in Black women, as determined by researchers in the United States. Uses of condoms by partners provide better protection than vaccines for HPV among newly sexually active women (Winer RL, Hughes JP, Feng Q, O’Reilly S, Kiviat NB, Holmes KK, Koutsky LA. Condom use and the risk of genital human papillomavirus infection in young women. N Engl J Med. 2006 Jun 22;354(25):2645-54. doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa053284. PMID: 16790697.).
“These current vaccines (Gardasil & Cervarix) protect against 2 human papillomavirus (HPV) types, HPV 16 and 18, which are associated with 70% of cervical cancers and 50% of high-grade cervical lesions. Black race, Hispanic ethnicity, and higher area-based poverty are salient predictors of lower HPV 16/18 positivity among women with high-grade cervical lesions (Niccolai LM, Russ C, Julian PJ, Hariri S, Sinard J, Meek JI, McBride V, Markowitz LE, Unger ER, Hadler JL, Sosa LE. Individual and geographic disparities in human papillomavirus types 16/18 in high-grade cervical lesions: Associations with race, ethnicity, and poverty. Cancer. 2013 Aug 15;119(16):3052-8. doi: 10.1002/cncr.28038. Epub 2013 May 9. PMID: 23661284.).
“The Duke University investigators also looked at high-grade lesions (CIN2/3).
“In CIN2/3, HPV 16, 18, 33, 39, and 59 were the most common genotypes detected in white women, whereas HPV 31, 35, 45, 56, 58, 66, and 68 were the most prevalent in African American women.
“These data suggest that HPV vaccines might have lower impact among black and Hispanic women and those living in high poverty areas.
“The funding for the vaccination project comes from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through GAVI, WHO, and UNICEF.
“It is concerning that this project may have a hidden agenda, aiming to induce infertility in Nigerian girls, leaving them with limited or no protection against HPV infections.
“Consequently, these girls might resort to fertility clinics for in vitro fertilization (IVF), where their ovarian eggs could be harvested for sale to Western Biotech Labs owned by Bill Gates, intended for embryonic stem cell research. The human ovarian eggs are essential for human organ/tissue cloning, with biotech companies requiring approximately 100 million ovarian eggs annually to perfect the procedure known as Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT). This could lead to around 20 million Nigerian girls becoming infertile, effectively becoming potential ‘donors’ of these ovarian eggs, while potentially resulting in the tragic loss of around 10 million lives due to complications. Unfortunately, numerous women who undergo multiple IVF procedures could experience severe complications, including ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, characterized by liver failure, kidney failure, cancers, and infections.
“The project proves highly profitable for biotech companies, with earnings from human tissue/organ cloning projected to reach an estimated 30 trillion USD within five years of full operation. This poses economic gains for many Western countries directly or indirectly aligned with biotech companies and ‘capitalist philanthropic billionaires.’ This prosperity, however, comes at the expense of millions of lives and the potential decline of our population.
“It’s worth noting that the insecurity prevalent in Nigeria is also sponsored by the same actors and exploited to manipulate food security by providing genetically modified organism (GMO) seeds from the same biotech companies. Their goal is to link the supply of GMO seeds with forced ovarian egg donation, referred to as ‘egg for food’. Only a sincere legislative intervention can safeguard our nation. The destiny of Nigeria rests within the hands of the National Assembly.
“What is concerning is that all of these activities appear to align with the provisions of the existing National Health Act of 2014, which was passed by the Senate. The current law excludes gametes (ovarian eggs and sperm) from the definition of tissue, allowing for the possibility of trafficking. This is precisely why we are urgently advocating for an amendment to the National Health Act of 2014. Additionally, we kindly request your consideration in halting the HPV vaccination program and implementing it exclusively under the supervision of a doctor’s prescription.
“We hold deep concerns regarding the potential consequences of this vaccination initiative and its broader implications for the health and well-being of Nigerian girls. Our conviction is that taking these measures will ensure the safety and reproductive health of our young population
