In an effort at achieving total malaria eradication in the country, we are focusing on the following critical areas:
• Research for safe vaccine.
• Sanitation that includes cleaning of the entire environment.
• Waste management and establishment of recycling plants in every local government area in Nigeria.
• Total fumigation of the length and breadth of the country via ariel and land spray.
Some days will be set aside for a clean-up exercise across the Nation. For effective management of wastes, we plan to establish proper waste management and recycling plants across the Nation. At least one recycling plant in each local government shall be established.
We will also lead strong advocacy for behaviourial change in terms of the disposal of wastes. It is anticipated that at least five million jobs will be created from this. The initiator of this project Prince Ned Nwoko is advocating for the declaration of a National Day of Fumigation in Nigeria and plans to sponsor a Bill to the National Assembly to set up a commission for the Malaria Project.
For active participation, community members will be made stakeholders of their environments during the campaign. Town hall meetings will be held to appoint sanitation officers and ambassadors at the grassroot level.
