Lokoja, March 7, 2017 (TNE): As part of efforts to eliminate malaria, 2.2 million insecticidal mosquito bed nets are to be distributed to mothers and children in the 21 LGAs of Kogi.
According to him, the Kogi Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the US Ambassador to Nigeria and the Mission Director of USAID, will witness the commencement of the distribution.
The team leader who was in Lokoja to inaugurate Coordinating Campaign Network for the long lasting insecticidal nets, said that all the nets were already on ground.
This time around, a household will be entitled to only one net, as against two that were given out previously.
He attributed malaria widespread to the many rivers that abound in the state, providing a breeding site for mosquitoes.
