NPHCDA Awards Zulum for Primary Healthcare Delivery
By Babagana Bukar Wakil, Maiduguri
Governor Babagana Umara Zulum was on Sunday evening honoured for his outstanding service delivery in the provision of primary healthcare services in Borno State.
The coordinator of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr Faisal Shu’sub, made the presentation of the award at the Government House in Maiduguri.
“ This award of excellence is in recognition of your exceptional commitment to improving primary healthcare services in Borno State. We are very confident that Borno will be a template in terms of the transformation of the Primary Healthcare”, Dr Faisal said.
He also said, “We applaud your outstanding dedication in advancing immunizations and other essential Primary Health Care (PHC) services across Borno State.”
The NPHCDA coordinator also presented to the governor a compendium that comprises pictures showcasing the efforts of Borno State Government in eradicating polio in Nigeria.
Recall that in May this year, Borno emerged as the overall best-performing state in the primary healthcare service delivery and winner in the northeast in the best-performing zonal awards category.
Speaking after receiving the award, Governor Zulum expressed gratitude to the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency for finding him worthy of the recognition.
He, however, reiterated that such recognition is a call to do more and assured of his continuous commitment to providing quality and affordable healthcare services to the people of Borno.
