100 Kebbi polio victims to undergo corrective surgery


The Kebbi State Government said on Friday that 100 persons with polio in the state would undergo corrective surgery.

The surgery would take place at the National Hospital, Abuja, next month and would be jointly sponsored by the state government and Rotary International.

Senior Special Assistant to the State Government on Health, Abdulnasir Argungu, said in Birnin Kebbi that the government would provide feeding, transportation and other logistics for the patients.

He said, “the corrective surgery itself would be conducted at no cost to the victims and the government.”

Mr. Argungu commended Rotary International for sponsoring the surgery, stressing that the surgery would help the victims to move around. He called on persons living with disability to avail themselves of the surgery.

About 40 polio victims from the state went through corrective surgery last December.
