Polio Immunization Not Intended To Depopulate Northern Nigeria – Suswam

polio_vaccineFollowing the notion in certain quarters that the polio immunization campaign is targeted at reducing the population of Northern Nigeria, Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has described such speculations, “mischievous and ill-misconceived”.

The governor, who urged parents to disregard the erroneous notion at the weekend during the flag-off of this year’s polio eradication campaign at Ugba town in Logo Local Government Area, reiterated his administration’s committment towards a healthier community.

“It is highly mischievous and should be taken as such. It is a misconception that the polio immunization is an attempt to depopulate the Northern region”, he stated.

Suswam further charged the people to secure the future of their children by ensuring that they are immunized against polio, stressing that the disease portends a serious danger to the future of the country if left unchecked.
