Polio exercise in Katsina NOT under threats | Emergency Center cries out!...


The handling of polio in Katsina State is not facing any such threat as ‘nonpayment of allowances’ as a media report has alleged, the National Polio Emergency Operations Centre has said. The center said in a statement yesterday that it was not aware of any organization - WHO, UNICEF, CDC, Rotary International, etc - nor the Katsina State government giving allowances to social mobilization committee as the work of the committee was entirely voluntary.

The statement which was signed by the Incident Manager, Katsina EOC, Dr Kabir Suleiman, said the Emergency Operation Centre was however aware of logistics support for social mobilization committee by the state government and UNICEF which it said had been settled up to date for all activities conducted by the committee.

The statement said the assertion that ‘nonpayment of allowances may jeopardize polio exercise’ in Katsina State ‘is entirely untrue and should not be given any serious attention.
