Wife of the President, Mrs AISHA BUHARI has urged parents in the country to de-worm their children regularly to ensure healthy life for the next generation.

She made the call at Babasidi Primary School, Bauchi, at a de-worming programme, her Director of Information, Mr SULEIMAN HARUNA, said in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

The president’s wife, represented at the event by the Zonal Coordinator of her Future Assured Programme in the North East, ZUWAIRA GAMBO, said worms could lead to mal-absorption of nutrients and could affect pupils’ performance and cognitive development.

Mrs. BUHARI added that medical experts had identified deworming of children as major determinant of growth and development.
