The National Primary Health Care Development Agency, NPHCDA, has denied an online publication quoting the ED/CEO NPHCDA, Dr. Faisal Shuaib as advocating for a $200 million loan for the importation and local production of mosquito nets in the country.

Mohammad Ohitoto, Head, Public Relations Unit, of the agency in a statement said,

“This is to inform Nigerians that this statement is not only untrue, it is a figment of the imagination of the writer as the CEO never discussed the malaria programme nor granted any interview on the malaria programme.

“It is pertinent to state that the Malaria programme is the responsibility of the National Malaria Elimination Programme (FMOH). Therefore, the NPHCDA Chief Executive has no reason whatsoever to discuss or advocate for funding for such intervention. This news is outrightly unfounded  and fake and should be disregarded by all well meaning Nigerians.”
