Ayade sets to commission 15 medical centres in C/River

July 11th, 2018

From Mathias Oko, Calabar

Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River State is set to commission 15 primary health

care facilities constructed  by  his  administration  under the  health

sector initiative he embarked upon since his assumption of office.

The project is in line with the present

administration’s policy thrust to make health care accessible to all

residing in the state, particularly pregnant women and children who

are prone to death during child labor.

Director General, State Primary Healthcare Development Agency , Dr.

Betta Edu disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists

shortly after the state acting governor, Prof. Ivara Ejemot Esu

commissioned the ultra-modern health care facility  located  at Technical

College , Mayne Avenue ,  Calabar at the weekend.

She said about 46 health centres have been constructed  and

commissioned across the three senatorial districts of the state with

15 of such facilities awaiting  commissioning  by the Governor

whose priority  is to revitalize the health sector to cater for the

health need of particularly  pregnant women and children.

“Since we came on board, we have revitalized the

health sector . We have commissioned about 46 primary health care

facilities with over 15 awaiting commissioning by the state governor”.

 “This facility is very strategic in the sense that this ward called

ward 12, in Calabar South has the largest voting strength in the last

elections. They had about 40 thousand eligible voters from this ward.

And so we must thank Gov. Ben Ayade for this”. Edu said.

When asked to explain on the kind of equipment put in place at the

newly commissioned health care centre, the DG said,  “This facility is

fully equipped with ten beds, inside the facility we have a very

digital ultra-modern delivery room where women can go for delivery

with a recovery room.
