It's a shame Kwara has 50% new polio cases - AbdulRazaq

Date: 2019-08-07

 

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Tuesday said it was a shame that the state recorded 50 percent of the new polio cases in Nigeria, saying he would deploy necessary resources to fight the virus. AbdulRazaq said this in Ilorin when he flagged off the polio outbreak response activities.

He said: "It is a shame that Kwara has 50 percent of the new outbreak. We shouldn't be dealing with fresh polio in this state now.

"But we will give the necessary supports to put an end to that. I call on Kwarans to join hands with our partners to interrupt the transmission of the polio virus in Kwara State and Nigeria at large."

Incident Manager of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency Dr Usman Adamu said Kwara recorded 50 percent of the new polio cases because the state did not pay the necessary counterpart funds to immunise the children against the disease.
