Contrary to what the current administration in Abia State is telling the world, a recently released federal government report on primary healthcare under one roof has scored Abia State as the only one with 100% during the administration of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu.
According to the report: “All states have established their SPHCBs, albeit at varying levels of operationalisation, with significant performance recorded in the Scorecard 6 assessment.
“Sixty-two (62) percent of the states surpassed the expected target of 90% i.e., a 40% increase when compared to the SC5 results. Several positions had a tie including the 2nd (Niger – 99%, Plateau – 99%), 4th (Kaduna – 98%, Kebbi – 98%, Zamfara – 98%), 7th (Ondo – 96%, Yobe – 96%) 9th (Delta – 95%, Bauchi – 95%). Abia state was the only state that scored 100% (gold badge).
“Other states with 90-99% (silver badge) include those mentioned above on the tied positions and Adamawa (91%), Enugu (90%).
“Nineteen percent (19%) of the states recorded poor performance (0-49%) including Ogun state at 26%.”
