Nigeria has attained an outstanding feat by recording no incidence of poliomyelitis in the last two months.

The Director General of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency,  Dr Ado Mohammed told  state house correspondents after meting with President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday that  the committee on the eradication of polio has stepped up its efforts to totally eliminate the disease from the country  in the next two years.

"What we told the president is that in the last two months, Nigeria has not recorded a single case of Polio. What this means is that no child has been paralyzed in Nigeria in the last two months. This is a major Achievement," he said.
