BB NAIJA WINNER PLEDGES SUPPORT FOR NED NWOKO MALARIA ERADICATION PROJECT.
The Big Brother Naija Season 5 (Lockdown) winner, Laycon, has pledged his support for Ned Nwoko Foundation’s Malaria Eradication Project.
The youth ambassador made the pledge when he paid a courtesy visit to the Antarctica anti malaria explorer in his Abuja mansion on Friday October 30th.
Whilst welcoming the celebrity and his entourage to his villa, Hon Prince Ned Nwoko shared his dream of a malaria free Africa with his guests. He explained his experience during the Antarctica expedition and maintained that he took such a breathtaking expedition to the end of the world because he believed his objective was achievable and stated that he was able to meet groups of researchers in Antarctica, who provided him with useful tips on how to execute the malaria eradication project in Africa to a logical and successful conclusion..
He stated that the first phase of the project will kick off in Nigeria very soon and that it will involves far reaching general environmental clean up and the fumigation of all the marshlands and other mosquito breeding places in the country..
He further added that the clean up exercise will involved everybody in the country and assured that his foundation is funding research for effective malaria vaccine, which he said was a more broader approach to eradicate the scourge of malaria in the entire African continent.
In his response, Laycon, commended Prince Ned Nwoko for his patriotism and commitment to eradicating the most deadly disease in Africa and pledged his support for the actualization of the project.
