Jaba Local Government Council, Flags Off Maternal Newborn Child Health Week

The Executive Chairman of Jaba Local Government Council, Honourable Benjamin Jock has flagged off the Maternal Newborn Child Health Week (MNCHW) at the Primary Health Care Centre, Fai.
Delivering his key note address at the event, the Honourable Chairman admonished the nursing mothers to take maternal health issues seriously as the Kaduna State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Mallam Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai has set out mechanisms in place to address issues related to child birth in the state. He therefore urged the women to avail themselves of this opportunity by ensuring that they access adequate health care at the facilities right from the moment of  conception up to the post natal stage in order to ensure their wellbeing. 
Owning to the efforts of the government at both levels in addressing maternal related health issues, the Honourable Chairman also tasked the health workers for due diligence and efficient service delivery in order to reciprocate government efforts. 
The flag off exercise was marked with the Honourable Chairman and his wife, Mrs. Lydia Benjamin vaccinating the new born babies against maternal related diseases.
The event was witnessed  by the State Technical Facilitator, Mr. Samuel Monday, the  State Supervisor, Mr  Adams Ango, and  Mrs. Sarah Y.S Dadai, the Director of Health-Jaba LGC.  Others in attendance include Mrs. Ladi Simon, Monitor, the UNICEF representative, Mrs. Ifeyinwa Okafor and the representatives of the traditional council.
