The Cross River State government has reached out to the Hausa communities in the state, to commemorate the Eid-el-Kabir with them.
The residents of Bogobiri community have benefited from different healthcare services such as testing and treatment of malaria and the distribution of over 600 mosquito nets among others.
Some inhabitants from other smaller Hausa settlements were also on ground to be part of this gesture by the government.
The Director General, Cross River State Primary Health Care Development Agency (CRSPHCDA), Dr. Beta Edu, led a medical team to the Hausa settlement in Calabar, the state’s capital in south-south Nigeria.
She started by sensitizing the people about the AyadeCare Health Insurance Bill and the need for them to use the treated mosquito nets as their environment seemed to a breading place for mosquitoes.
The CRSPHCDA boss also urged the women of the community to partner with the government to reduce to its barest minimum maternal and child mortality.
Some of the beneficiaries expressed gratitude to the Governor Ben Ayade led government.
They said he has made the history of being the first administration to visit their communities with gifts during a festive period.
