The United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF), has pledged to continue to cooperate and support the Kwara State Government in its bid to eradicate polio, malaria and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in the State.  

The UNICEF representative in the State, Mr. Mugaju James, made the promise when he led a team of officials of the organization on a courtesy visit to the State Commissioner for Planning and Economic Development, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, in his office.  

Mr. James observed that the eradication of these diseases would go a long way to improve the living condition of the people and hasten the socio-economic development of the State.  

The UNICEF representative also commended the State Government for the establishment of the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development in view of its strategic importance to the orderly development of the society.  

Responding, Commissioner for Planning and Economic Development, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed assured that the State Government would continue to partner with UNICEF and other donor agencies in its bid to ensure the good health of the people and rapid socio-economic development of the State.

Also speaking, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Osuolale Ajayi, acknowledged the vital role UNICEF had played in the lives of women and children in the State.
