Akeredolu laments high mortality caused by malaria
Wife of the Ondo State governor, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu has lamented the high rate at which pregnant women and children lose their lives in the state due to malaria induced by mosquito bites.
She said this yesterday during her decoration as Net Ambassador for the insecticide treated nets distribution exercise, which kicked off in Ondo State yesterday by the Catholic Relief Service (CRS) and some development partners.
She advised residents of the state to collect the net when the distribution starts and make use of it by sleeping inside it every night so as to collectively reduce the incidents of malaria in the state.
The state Commissioner for Health, Wahab Adegbenro, who led the delegation, said the event was to formally intimate her of plans to distribute about 3 million Long Lasting Insecticide Nets and seek her support for a successful exercise.
