Concerted Effort Should be Geared Towards Prevention of Malaria – Akinyele LG Boss Charges Residents

The Executive Chairman of Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State, Hon Taoreed Jimoh Adedigba on Saturday, distributed insecticide treated mosquito nets to residents of the council. He urged all residents to be more concerned with preventing rather than curing malaria infection.

Taoreed gave the charge while monitoring the distribution of the nets at Ward 05, Ward 09, Ward 10 and Ward 11 to ensure normalcy in the distribution exercise.

He said that efforts should be geared towards a robust prevention of the scourge, with wide-spread use of nets, in-door spraying with insecticide and preventive treatment of expectant mothers.

According to him, “We cannot fold our arms and allow malaria to continue to ravage our society. This epidemic has claimed too many lives, whether in our country, Africa or the world in general. Thank God it is not a disease without prevention or cure, and since it has both, the easier way out is to prevent it.”
