The Federal Republic of Germany and Nigeria have signed a 29.9 million Euros agreement in support of polio eradication programme in the country, a statement has said.
Saadu Salahu, Head, Public Relation Unit, National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), made this known in a statement issued on Saturday in Abuja.
Mr. Salahu said the agreement was the ninth of such financial agreements and support for polio eradication in Nigeria by Germany.
He said the agreement was signed in Abuja by Regine Hess, the Deputy Head of mission for Germany in Nigeria; Geoffrey Onyeama, the Minister of Foreign affairs, and Faisal Shuaib, the Executive Director of NPHCDA.
The statement quoted Mr. Onyeama as expressing delight over the age-long warm relationship between the two countries and their leaders.
The minister commended the German government for its huge support to Nigeria, not only on polio eradication but also other equally important sectors in Nigeria.
