Sokoto state has recently been identified as having the highest number of polio cases in the country. Seven local governments in the state are high risk in terms of thr polio virus according to the National Primary Health Care Development Agency.
Its a little frustrating to hear that polio is even a disease we talk about in this day and age when it can be eradicated. Northern governors need to take health a little more seriously, and yes I said Northern governors. Majority of the polio cases have been reported in the north.
According to AllAfrica, some parents still reject polio vaccinations for their kids and in reaction to this, immunisation officials in Kebbi state have threatened to arrest parents who do not let their children receive the polio vaccine. Nice move, if you ask me!
