The ED KSPHCDA – Dr Abubakar Yakubu appreciated the tremendous support of AFENET that the Agency and people of kogi State have enjoyed over the years in the drive to kick Polio out of the Country.
He applauded the move to have Kogi NSLOs who will monitor that children at the grass-root are given the polio vaccines and maintain our status of being Polio free even as a State. He however appealed to the AFENET team to give more consideration to kogites in their selection of NSLOs for Kogi.
“As a State and an Agency, we are poised to collaborate with AFENET Nigeria and provide every necessary support in the NSTOP project. You can count on us but I appeal that you give more consideration to Kogi Applicants in your selection for Kogi NSLOs.”
