Chairman of Abi Local government Council Hon Mrs Edith Amadi has asserted that the only way to safeguard the future of a child was by immunization, maintaining that it was every child’s right.

Hon Amadi made the assertion while flagging off the 2014 first round of Immunization Plus Days (IPDs) for children between 0 to 5 years of age and pregnant women at Akpoha Ekureku in Abi Council Area.

She reiterated that the children were the leaders of tomorrow and must be helped to realise their potentials in life by getting them immunized against childhood killer diseases, adding that mothers have a crucial role to play to this end.

The Council Chairman admonished the women to always bring out their wards for immunization, averring that any childhood death as a result of childhood disease which would have been prevented through immunization would be blamed on the mother of the child.

‘Children are the leaders of tomorrow. Therefore, it is the joint responsibility of both Government and parents to provide, protect and care for them for a better future’, the chairman said.

She stated that vaccination was the right of every child and appealed to mothers not to deny children the right to access vaccination by ensuring that each child in Abi Local government area was fully immunized against childhood killer diseases.

Hon Amadi restated her administration’s commitment to ensuring the provision of primary health care services across the council area while pledging the council’s support towards the success and sustainability of the on-going immunization exercise.

She stressed that the essence of the exercise was to reinforce the fight for the eradication and prevention of childhood killer diseases all over the world, especially in Abi Local Government Area.

Highpoint of the event was the performing of the immunization exercise which saw the Chairman Hon Edith Amadi vaccinating the children as well as the distribution of household items and toiletries to both pregnant and nursing mothers by the chairman.
