Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje says the State Government is playing host to the Rotary Day due to the humanitarian services the organisation is rendering to the public around the globe.
The Governor represented by his Deputy Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna stated this yesterday while receiving the District Governor of Rotary 9125 Mrs Jumoke Bamigboye on a courtesy visit in his office.
According to him, the State Government has provided all necessary logistics and support required to ensure the successful hosting of the event.
The Governor added that the State Government is proud of Rotary International due to the contribution it gave towards ensuring the eradication of poliovirus in Kano and Nigeria at large.
Speaking earlier the District Governor of Rotary 9125 Mrs Jumoke Bamigboye explained that the reason for choosing Kano to host the event is that Rotary International came to Nigeria through Kano, therefore we have to come back to thank the people of the State for accepting us.
She commended the commitment of the Kano State Government and the Emirate Council for their support in ensuring that people accept the poliovirus vaccine.
“We must keep on with the routine immunisation, whenever a woman gives birth we must protect the child through immunisation against poliovirus she said”.
She however expressed appreciation to the Kano State Government for accepting to the Rotary Day.
