Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State on Saturday condemned the killing of nine polio workers in the state.

Mr. Kwankwaso, who made the condemnation in a special broadcast, described the attack as shocking. He condoled with the state and the families of the victims and prayed for the souls of the deceased.

He assured the people that “government will not relent in its efforts to treat diseases such HIV/AIDS, polio and malaria throughout the state”.
