Nigeria accounts for one in every eight child deaths globally. Every single day the country loses more than 2,000 children under-five to diseases, while 158 Nigerian women die from pregnancy or childbirth related illnesses.
These losses are senseless! With so much preventative measures available to our modern society there is no way to justify the unnecessary death of such a vast amount of human life. It is for this reason that celebrities such as Waje, Yemi Alade, Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw, Ali Nuhu, Basketmouth and Toolz have gathered together in the campaign Make Naija Stronger.
The purpose of this campaign is to gather 200,000 signatures on a petition directed to the Nigerian government asking that they implement the National Health Care Act and Abuja Declaration. Can it be done? So far this campaign has gathered 83% of the needed signatures, that’s a total of 166,660 supporters.
