He particularly praised Sarkin Yakin Kano, Alhaji Wada Aliyu Gaya and the then Commissioner of Health during Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso administration, Dr Abubakar Labaran Yusuf, as “…frontline elements who sacrificed alot in making sure that Polio disease was eradicated in the state, which also meant eradicating the disease from the country. That snowballed into total eradication from the continent.”
