 Improve On Immunisation Coverage — Okonjo Iweala Tells Bu


Chairman, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI), Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to improve on immunisation coverage in the country.

The former Minister of Finance made the appeal on Thursday, December 26, during an interview with the News Agency Of Nigeria (NAN).

She said there is a need to awaken the mind of government bodies to carry out their functions for the growth of Nigeria and Africa.

“We like Nigeria to improve the immunisation coverage. We were initially at 33 per cent.

“Now, they have worked hard. We are at 50 per cent now, but we need to work harder to get us to the average for Africa.

“Nigeria is one of the key countries where GAVI is engaged, and we are very happy to be here.

“We have a very large programme for Nigeria, and it is all grant and not a loan,” the former Managing Director of the World Bank Group said.
