The House of Representatives has urged the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) to take urgent steps in controlling malaria epidemic in Kano State.

This is as it said the programme should be aimed towards taking proactive measures in order to be better prepared and bring emergency situation such as the one in Kano under control.

The resolution was contained in a motion of urgent public importance moved by Hon. Abubakar Nuhu Danburam.

In his debate, Danburam noted that since October, 2016 when Kano State witnessed unprecedented malaria epidemic, it has been spreading despite all efforts to bring it under control through the provision of mosquito nets and administration of drugs.

He said one of the challenges that face the people of Kano Municipal Federal Constituency and the state at large is the inadequate provision and distribution of mosquito nets, which protect the people against malaria infection adding that malaria epidemic usually occurs during rainy season, hence the need to be proactive in order prevent its occurrence.

In that regard, the House mandated its committee on health to liaise with the federal ministry of health to assist in controlling the persistence of malaria epidemic in Kano State and the country at large.
