Ebonyi State Governor

The Ebonyi State government has flagged off the distribution of over 2.83million insecticide treated nets to residents across its 13 Local Government Areas (LGA).

The flag off ceremony took place at Ezza North Local Government headquarters, Ebiaji at the weekend.

The State Malaria Elimination Program Manager, Ministry of Health, Ebonyi State, Mr. Lawrence Nwankwo said the choice of Ezza North LGA for the flag off was to increase awareness and acceptance of the net.

“This is a three to four-year campaign program, the last one was done in 2019; before that, we had one in 2015, all in this administration. Each time the net expires after three years, we need to replace it. So, that is what we are doing today.

“Distribution of the nets started today here in Ezza North being the state flag-off, it will go through from the 3rd to the 4th of February this year and every household in Ebonyi must have received their nets,” Mr. Nwankwo said.
