Why am not coming to Nigeria- Bill Gate

Bill Gates

Bill Gates

United States richest man and philanthropist, Bill Gates  says cancellation of his  planned official visit to Nigeria scheduled for March  27  was unconnected to the  controversial presidential but a very tight schedule .

Bill speaking through his Communications officer for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,  Amy Enright told me via e-mail that recent news reports about the reasons for the postponement of an upcoming trip by Bill Gates to Nigeria are false.

Amy  said changes to Bill's travel schedule sometimes happen for a variety of reasons. " Bill has visited Nigeria often, closely follows Nigeria's polio eradication and routine immunization efforts and is always keen to see the work of our partners in the field. He looks forward to visiting Nigeria when his schedule will permit."

Bill Gates was scheduled to  meet with President Jonathan, state governors and officials of the Federal Ministry of Health in respect of the aggressive polio eradication campaign in the country.
