Senate President David Mark has described the endemic nature of polio in certain parts of the country as a major embarrassment.
Mark was speaking in Abuja yesterday while receiving the incoming and outgoing governors of the Rotary Club International District 9125. He said, “it’s a major embarrassment that Nigeria is one of the three polio most affected countries.”
Speaking further, the senate president said, “it is ungodly for some elite to mislead the uninformed. We must do all we can in collaboration with voluntary organizations or non-governmental organizations to eradicate polio and remove this shame and embarrassment.
