Speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, Onochie said the discovery of a vaccine to tackle malaria should serve as a reminder to Nigerians never to give up on any problem or untoward situation.

Under the MOU, the United States through the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), will provide technical assistance to the NLNG-led Bonny Island Malaria Elimination Project. The partnership seeks to bring malaria deaths to zero in the community of 300,000 and make the island Nigeria’s first malaria-free zone.   

This was made known during a recent visit by officials of United States President’s Malaria Initiative to Bonny Island to conduct a first-hand assessment of the feasibility of malaria elimination on the Island and explore opportunities for partnership with NLNG in combating the scourge.
