Katsina Communities Reject Polio Immunisation Over Lack Of Amenities

Health Tips

THERE are strong indications that Katsina communities are resisting Polio immunization over non-provision of social amenities by the state government.

Members of Ward Development Committee, WDC, disclosed this in a chat with newsmen in Katsina, yesterday. The communities include Yashi, in Danmusa Local Government Area; Jiba and Chambala villages in Batsari Local Government Area of Katsina State.

 

Chairman of WDC in Danmusa, Muhammad Danjuma, said the communities were resisting the attempt to immunize their wards due to what they described as government’s negligence.

 

He cited an instance with Yashi village, where the populace protested the lack of good roads, water, hospital, and school, saying “no road, no immunization.”

 

Similarly, the Ward Head of Ruma in Batsari Local Government Area, Bello Ruma, narrated his experience where two villages of Jiba and Chambala refused administration of the vaccines on their wards.
