Rotary International and the Bill Gates Foundation  have raised $99 million to completely eradicate the polio virus in Nigeria.

The District Governor 9125 of Rotary International, Clement Bisi-Adegoke, disclosed this on Sunday in Ilorin while speaking with newsmen.

Rotary International, he said, raised $33 million while Bill Gates donated $66 million.

According to Bisi-Adegoke, the Bill Gates Foundation is the global partner of Rotary International and remains committed to the idea of raising the fund to tackle the last outbreak of polio in the country.

He further urged Nigerians to reflect on the future of the country as it clocked 56 years of independence.

Bisi-Adegoke warned Nigerians against undermining the capacity of leaders to lead while canvassing that agriculture and emphasis on entrepreneurship would help tackle the current recession.
