IF WE SUPPORT NED NWOKO, A MALARIA FREE NIGERIA IS ACHIEVABLE, EVBIE ANDREW
Philanthropist and medical director of the Williams Clinic and Diagnostic Centre, Evang. Evbie Andrew has called on Nigerians to support the malaria eradication project initiated by Hon. Ned Nwoko.
Evbie’s message contained in a press statement made available to newsmen, urged everyone to key into the project, adding that should Nigerians support the Ned Nwoko malaria eradication project, a malaria free Nigeria is achievable.
Recounting his experiences as a medical personel, Evbie said that, there is no week his facility doesn’t attend to a minimum of five cases of malaria, adding that the number of cases is an indication as to how much malaria affects Nigerians.
“Malaria remains one of the biggest killers in Nigeria especially in children under the age of five, and we can’t say because we are fighting against COVID-19, we should then push aside the fight against Malaria”.
“For the fact that Hon. Ned Nwoko despite the challenges the world is currently experiencing has continued to advocate for a malaria free Nigeria is enough for all of us to take this campaign seriously”.
“On Saturday which was world malaria day, i listened to him talk passionately during an Instagram live chat with comedian Ali Baba, about how he plans on achieving the target of a malaria free Nigeria, according Hon. Ned Nwoko he has adopted a two way approach, first by sponsoring researches on vaccine development and then nationwide fumigation and proper waste management, the later a permanent solution to the malaria scourge, one which if every nigerian gets on board is doable”.
“As a medical personel, i know the task is not going to be easy, because to clean Nigeria and rid it of malaria will be Herculean, but with the kind of passion and commitment shown so far by Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko to eradicating malaria from Nigeria, i am convinced that with total support from all of us, he will succeed and the mission will be accomplished, and on a personal level, i am ready to play my role”, part of the statement read.
