Singer, Tiwa Savage becomes Rotary ambassador for polio eradication
By Patricia Uyeh
”Ovation” crooner and Mavin’s record first lady, Tiwa Savage has added another feather to her cap as she is the newest face to join Rotary Club’s ”This Close” public awareness campaign for polio eradication.
In achieving this feat, she joins the likes of Bill Gates, Jackie Chan amongst others in Rotary’s public awareness campaign.
Speaking on her role in the polio eradication campaign, Tiwa Savage said:
”This is a cause that hits close to home for me, not only as a mother of a small child but as a proud Nigerian, whose country has been battling this disease for many years”
According to the Rotary club press release “Her participation in this program comes at a critical juncture. Last year, Nigeria experienced a polio outbreak that paralysed four children after passing nearly two years without a case of the disease. Her involvement in the campaign will raise important awareness that will help ensure the outbreak is stopped.”
Tiwa Savage had administered vaccines to children in Lagos in late April 2017.
