The Secretary of the foundation said the organization has selected Mai’adua LG as the area for the maiden workshop owing to the strategic position of the area.
Alhaji Aminu Inuwa, the Secretary of the foundation, said this while addressing hundreds of participants in Mai’adua Local Government Area of Katsina State on Friday.
Inuwa said the foundation has selected Mai’adua local government as the area for the maiden workshop owing to the strategic position of the area due its proximity to border towns.
He said the foundation would collate the statistical analysis of the daily data of birth and death registration for proper planning.
“Only this local government was selected for the programme this year’’.
“We will also collect the data of pregnant women who patronised hospitals for pre- and post-natal care,” he said.
The scribe said the foundation would collaborate with relevant stakeholders on health to reduce the instances of maternal and child mortality through provision of drugs and enlightenment.
Inuwa called on husbands and parents to always allow their wives to be visiting hospitals and avail their children for routine immunisation.
Alhaji Musa Soro, the Sole Administrator of Mai’adua Local Government Council, assured of government commitment to ensure success of the programme.
He directed traditional rulers in the area to supply the needed information to the foundation to ease the process, stressing “we need your cooperation and understanding’’.
Alhaji Ahmed Diddiri, the District Head of Mai’adua, commended foundation for choosing the area for the programme.
He said traditional rulers would support activities of the foundation through ward heads and village heads for wider coverage and efficient implementation.
NAN reports that 630 wards heads and 31 village heads also attended the workshop.
