The Katsina State Government says health remains its key priority and it would keep making efforts to improve the health care system in the state.

The Executive Secretary of the State Primary Health Care Agency, Dr. Shamsuddeen Yahaya, said this at the 2019 World Polio Day Debriefing held at the agency’s office, Katsina State.

He said the agency is not only giving priority to polio eradication but other health-related campaigns such as a yellow fever mass campaign, maternal and unilateral tetanus eradication campaign, measles, as well as meningitis campaigns.

According to him, “the last time Katsina recorded wild poliovirus was over seven years ahead of the three years that was recorded in the country”.

He further stated that the agency has been collaborating with partners and other stakeholders to conduct high-quality campaigns aimed at strengthening routine immunisation and making sure that the state remains polio-free.

Yahaya, therefore, called on the general public to continue to avail themselves with a lot of activities and interventions provided by the government so that every child can be reached.
