    This is a welcoming development cholera id a very infectious disease and nobody wants to be affected with it so if the minister clears the state we should be happy

    And also kudos to the state governor for appointing a competent minister that has versed experience in health related issues not just only based on political favours

  • This is a good improvement but they shouldn’t stop at this, the main reason why people have cholera is Coz of the water they drink. As a ilorin resident, I can say categorically that most people here don’t have accessibility to clean water. The government should be find a workable solution to it.
