Ibrahim, who expressed satisfaction at the level of compliance by parents, urged husbands to always allow their wives to take their children to health care facilities for the routine immunisation.

He also appealed to parents to co-operate with immunisation officials for the exercise to be hitch-free.

Ibrahim said such cooperation would further facilitate quick response in combating the disease and addressing other emergency situations in the state.

NAN reports that the current round of polio immunisation commenced in all the 27 local government areas of the state on Nov. 12.
