The aim of this is to educate the general public on the multi-pronged federal ministry of health and W.H.O recommended directives on the prevention of the viral disease,” Fadeyi said in a statement on Wednesday

“These materials would be impactful in driving home the messages even to the grassroots, as people respond positively to audio-visual instructional materials, from our research and experience.
