PRESS RELEASE

 

 

Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo has commended the State Chief Executive Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for Breathing a Breath of Fresh Air into the Healthcare Delivery System of the State.

 

Dr. Banigo made this commendation in reaction to the exponential increase in the health indices of the State within the past 3 years of Governor Wike’s Administration.

 

According to the Deputy Governor who also doubles as the Chairman of the State Task Force on Polio Eradication and Primary Healthcare  “at the outset the Wike led administration met an deplorable health care delivery system, routine immunization  and other health indicators pointed to the fact that health care delivery was at its lowest ebb”.

 

She said “with a full determination not to play politics with the health of the Rivers People as his predecessor did, Governor Wike has been able to translate his words into action, the 2017 Multi-indicator cluster survey has placed Rivers State as a foremost State in health care delivery in the Country.”

 

Dr. Banigo disclosed that “Primary Healthcare is the Foundation of the Health Care Delivery System, Governor Wike has given the system more impetus.  For instance measles coverage increased from 56% in 2015 to 95% in 2017, while Penta 3 coverage increased from 63% in 2015 to 92% in 2017 because of the political will and commitment of the Governor”.
