…Made a stop-over in Jos.

Kunle Adeyanju

The Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, has received Kunle Adeyanju the Diaspora biker, who rode from London to Nigeria.

He was in Jos as part of his advocacy for the fight against Polio, and met with Governor Lalong at the oldest Golf Course in Nigeria, ‘Rayfield 1913.’

According to Kunle Adeyanju, he is still going round the country to encourage Nigerians to keep on doing what they have done to fight against polio so that the disease will not come back again. 

He stated that, just last week, polio was recorded in the UK, and also reiterated the fact that Malawi, Cote D’Ivoire and Togo still have polio. “Therefore, it is very important for the country to sustain its efforts to permanently kick polio out of Nigeria so that polio will never return,” he said.

While congratulating him for a successful trip from London and also welcoming him to Plateau State, Governor Lalong described Kunle Adeyanju as a “hero and worthy ambassador of the nation.” 

Lalong equally appreciated Adeyanju’s effort in fighting against polio – a disease, which he said “did a lot of damage to Nigeria and took a very long time to be checkmated.” 

The governor also told the biker that he is a major donor in the fight against polio by his reason of being a member of the Rotary International, a body that has led in the fight against polio globally. 

He assured Adeyanju that, the Government of Plateau State will continue to do its best to not only address polio-related matters, but also handle other diseases that pose a threat to public health and safety. 

According to him, his administration has continued to create the right atmosphere for tourism and sports to thrive; thereby making it possible for more people to visit Plateau State for leisure and business. 

He also used the opportunity to appeal to Kunle Adeyanju to use the benefit of his visit to Plateau State to send out the correct information about the fact that a new Plateau that is peaceful, accommodating and investor-friendly has emerged out of the sustained efforts of the Rescue Administration.
