Ned Nwoko, a former senator representing Delta-north, says he has made plans with pilots to fumigate the entire country.

Addressing journalists on Monday at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja, Nwoko said the fumigation will help to get rid of mosquitoes and in turn, eradicate malaria.

According to a blog post published on a website named after him, an academic research grant will be provided to five African universities for the development of an anti-malaria vaccine.

“The Prince Ned Nwoko Foundation, which champions this cause, has set short and long term targets for the project aimed at achieving a malaria-free Africa before 2030,” the post read.

“The short-term delivery plan shall be through national mobilization for the fumigation of Nigeria and other African countries to rid them of mosquitoes.

“To achieve performance, community members will be made stakeholders of their environments while community town hall meetings shall similarly be held to appoint sanitation ambassadors and officers.

“The foundation’s long-term plan in delivering the project is investing in the development of an anti-malaria vaccine.

“In furtherance of this, Prince Ned Nwoko Foundation would establish academic research grants for a malaria vaccine in five top-grade universities spread across the African continent.”

Nwoko, who recently travelled to Antarctica, said he chose his travel destination to draw attention to his malaria eradication campaign in Nigeria and Africa.

“It’s a very serious project. You might think Nigeria is such a huge place that nobody can possibly think of fumigating the whole country but it will be done,” he said.

Nwoko hoisted the Nigerian flag while in Antarctica to make the country’s presence known.
