He also stressed the need to create an agency which will be saddled with responsibility of eradicating malaria in Nigeria.
The representative of the the Nigerian in the Diaspora, Alistair Soyode commended the initiative and pledge the association supports.
Eedris Abdulkareem opined that this is a wake up call for all leaders across Nigeria to get a vaccine because there’s a vaccine for other diseases who are not as deadly as Malaria.
The Billionaire Philanthropist and Antarctica explorer Prince Ned Nwoko also used the opportunity to thank all Nigerians that came out across the Nation to create Awareness on the scourge of malaria in Africa.
The project coordinator, Mr Chukwuebuka Anyaduba also encouraged the citizens to take charge of their environment by ensuring a clean environment because mosquitoes breed in dirty environments.

The walk was geared at creating awareness on our individual role in the eradication of Malaria in Nigeria and across Africa.
It is on record that malaria remains one of the deadliest illness in Africa as it has killed more persons than even the recent coronavirus.
