2020 International Month of Hearing and Speech

Prof. Julius Ademokoya, President, Speech Pathologists and Audiologists Association in Nigeria (SPAAN), says no fewer than 8.5 million Nigerians are suffering from hearing impairments. He stated this on Thursday during a news conference to commemorate the International Month of Hearing and Speech for 2020, held at the NUJ Press Centre in Ibadan.

Recall that the conference, with the theme: “Promoting Better Hearing and Speech in Nigeria”, was organized by SPAAN, in collaboration with Smile Train Incorporation.

Ademokoya described the rate at which the figure of affected Nigerians was increasing as alarming, calling for the government’s intervention toward addressing the situation.
