The extermination of polio is increasingly difficult because of the result of fear-mongering within Nigeria. Haruna Kaita, a professor of pharmacy at Ahmadu Bello University, is known for spreading false information against the polio vaccine. There have been misconceptions stating that the vaccine contained birth control, HIV, birth defecting or, cancerous substances. This has created propaganda within the Muslim community fearing that the polio vaccine might be an intended American genocide against them. Although Kaita has recognized his bad influence, fear-mongering the polio vaccine is a never-ending battle within the Nigerian community. It is detrimental to the lives of Muslims because it stops the overall positive influence within groups to choose to be vaccinated.
