Mike Omotosho, governor of Rotary District 9125, which helped organise the road walk, said, "When everybody's aware, it becomes a lot easier for people to bring out their babies for immunisation. As long as there's still a proven case out there, every child is at risk."
The walk comes after Nigeria successfully interrupted transmission of wild Polio virus and was removed from the list of polio endemic countries.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) is set to formally pronounce the delisting of Nigeria as a polio endemic country before President Muhammadu Buhari.
The event which is scheduled for the State House next Monday will see the country hosting the Director-General of WHO, Dr. Margaret Chan, who will be represented by WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso R. Moeti.
