The Kano state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, has said the state had recorded huge success in the fight against polio by sustaining routine immunisation campaigns as portrayed in January, this year.
Tsanyawa, who disclosed this while speaking on the February 2020 National Immunisation Plus Days (NPDs) Vaccination campaign in Kano Friday, said the campaign “has been scheduled to be carried out across the 484 political wards of the 44 local government areas of the state, which commences on February 15 to 18, 2020.
He said the conduct of the polio campaign in the state was not coincidental, but rather an achievement of the present administration following concerted efforts by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the support of the federal government, development partners and traditional institutions.
According to him, it is on record that a lot of resources have been committed into supplemental immunisation activities, routine immunisation, health camps, medical outreaches and lots more with a view to meeting all eligible children for immunisation.
Tsanyawa, however, said the state government was fully committed to providing quality, affordable, accessible and robust health care services to the people.
