Nigeria may soon be declared a polio-free country come August 2020.

This is as indicated by the African Regional Commission for Certification on Polio Eradication, ARCC, an organ of the World Health Organisation, WHO.

The Chairman of the commission, Professor Rose Leke, disclosed this during a meeting with the Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, NPHCDA and partners.

Prof. Leke says Nigeria’s performance in polio eradication efforts has been quite impressive and the results encouraging.

She revealed that the commission has reviewed the documentation made by the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency on Nigeria’s progress so far and found that it tallies with the reality on ground.

The ARCC further commended Nigeria for beating polio despite years of battling with the Wild Polio Virus.
