Written by Yusuf Zubairu

World Health Organisation WHO has declared Nigeria free of wild polio, following the completion of documentation for the free status.

The United Nations Health Agency disclosed this on its Twitter for regional office Africa in Brazzaville, Congo.

It says Nigeria’s complete documentation for Wild Polio virus free status was accepted by the Africa Regional Certification Commission for polio eradication (ARCC) this Thursday.

He said apart from President Muhammadu Buhari, the two most important people who have made it possible due to their financial and technological contributions have been Mr Aliko Dangote and Mr Bill Gates. NAN
