He said the registration of the household would be followed by the issuance of the treated nets freely to the public at the end of January.
According to him, households that are not registered will not benefit from the exercise, stressing that efforts will be intensified to ensure proper utilisation of the nets.
Ahmed said the programme would also sensitise residents who were not registered, especially children below five years, ahead of the distribution to embrace the exercise.
“As a major stakeholder in the prevention of diseases, MAPS would sustain the campaign and support to eradicate malaria in the state,’’ he said. (NAN)
