Front line billionaire, entrepreneur, public health environmentalist, and Chairman, Ned Nwoko Foundation, Dr Prince Ned Munir Nwoko, means different things to different people
This Prince Ned Munir Nwoko who is a lawyer, politician and businessman, was also once a member of the Federal House of Representative, not so long ago, landed in Antarctica for the symbolic flag-off of his multi-billion naira malaria eradication in Africa project.
His fight against deadly malaria is becoming legendary by the day and he deserved commendation
Last night he hosted an exclusive media interaction as chairman/initiator of ERADICATION OF MALERIA IN AFRICA and appealed: Eradication of Malaria in Africa is not only my task but our collective task, so please join me as I embark on the much-awaited expedition to Antarctica in pursuit of anti-malaria vaccine and eradication of malaria in Africa.
Ned Nwoko Foundation pledged its commitment to the fight against malaria in the country.
The foundation is seeking more collaboration with Nigerians to eradicate malaria from the country and the rest of Africa.
Founder of the Foundation and businessman, Ned Nwoko noted that malaria remained a major problem in Nigeria and the rest of Africa.
Nwoko said: “The fight against malaria means a lot to me. We are looking at eradicating malaria in Africa starting with Nigeria.
“There are 54 countries in Africa, six of them are already malaria-free and we are trying to do what they did. The first one will be fumigating Nigeria; it involves everyone because every home and the environment have to be fumigated.
"Malaria is not a white man’s problem, it is Africa’s problem. We will collaborate with you in what you are doing; you will collaborate with us in what we are doing so that we can achieve some common goals. Everything that we are doing is for public service and the public good.
Meanwhile, Still on His two-pronged approach in fighting malaria, the billionaire plans a heavy fumigation of Africa and funding research endowments for a malaria vaccine in five universities across Africa to the tune of $750,000. It was gathered that each university will receive a research grant of $150,000.
Preparatory to his departure from South Africa, Nwoko who went through a safety briefing on the trip, was spotted with Captain Hamish Harding and a teenager, Giles Harding, the youngest human ever to visit Antarctica.
His words: "Malaria is a majorly African problem. If you understand that, then you will comprehend why there is no concerted effort to find a permanent cure to it.
"There is no family in Nigeria that has been spared. No family that has not lost some loved relatives," he asserted.
* God bless Dr Nwoko for his tireless fight against malaria
