Nigeria : C’ttee begins fight against Avian Flu

Article via Daily Independent :

" Yobe State Public Enlightenment Committee (PEC) on avian influenza has embarked on tour of some local government areas of the state.

The tour is to guard against possible outbreak and spread of bird flu and other diseases in the state.

Members of the committee led by the Director of Information in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Mohammed Babe Abubakar, were at Fika and Jakusko local government areas to discuss with the council executive, traditional rulers, and owners of poultries and farmers of other birds.

Abubakar said the last avian influenza outbreak consumed many fowls and birds in the state, adding that the state government was so disturbed that it decided to set up the committee that would continue to update knowledge of bird diseases, their prevention and control.

He also sought for the cooperation of the people towards ensuring the consumption of healthy fowls in the state while noting that the state was endowed with birds."
