Kano State Government on Tuesday condemned the attitude of some health workers towards the conduct of immunisation against polio in the state.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer, Ministry of Health, Ismail Garba in Kano.
The statement said the Commissioner for Health in the state, Dr. Kabiru Getso, made the condemnation during a visit to Dawakin Tofa and Tofa Local Government Areas.
The commissioner, who was in areas to monitor the ongoing immunisation exercise, expressed dismay over the attitudes of some health personnel, which he said could deter the smooth conduct of the exercise.
He said such attitudes, if not properly addressed, could jeopardise the concerted efforts of the state government towards eradicating polio by July 2017.
He said the state government would not condone acts capable of hindering smooth conduct of the exercise in the state.
He, however, charged health personnel to step up efforts to do the right thing at the right direction for the healthy growth of children and pregnant women.
He also called on parents, especially pregnant women and malnourished children, to attend the nearest health facility to benefit from the week long Maternal and Child Health Week to enable them get free consultation and treatment. NAN.
