Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

The Kwara State Im­mu­ni­sa­tion Of­fi­cer, Ha­jia Ha­jarat Suleiman, has so­licited the sup­port of Ilorin Emi­rate in the fight against polio. While on a sen­si­ti­za­tion visit to the Emir of Ilorin, Al­haji Ibrahim Zulu Gam­bari, Ha­jia Ha­jarat lamented that some “dis­grun­tled el­e­ments” are spread­ing ru­mour to dis­suade par­ents from pre­sent­ing their kids for im­mu­niza­tion. She said the visit was to sen­si­tize the emi­rate on the prob­lems faced by of­fi­cials of the min­istry to ef­fec­tively ad­min­is­ter vac­cines to chil­dren in the state. Re­spond­ing, the emir who was rep­re­sented by Al­haji Mah­mud Atiku, the Ba­lo­gun Fu­lani of Ilorin, said some politi­cians were us­ing wrong pro­pa­ganda to dis­suade people from hav­ing their chil­dren im­mu­nised.
