The Bayelsa State government says it has completed 83 out of 105 primary health centres under construction across the state.
The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Paraba Igwele, disclosed this during a media briefing after the state executive council meeting in Yenagoa.
He said the completed health centres were ready for opening while the remaining ones were about 80 per cent completed.
Igwele said Bayelsa State had taken the lead as the most responsive state to infant and maternal mortality in the South-South and one of the best models in the entire country.
According to him, the feat came as a result of the commitment of the restoration government under Governor Seriake Dickson.
He said the effort was aimed at ensuring that pregnant women had the best of care and delivered safely.
Igwele also informed that 93 persons were admitted in various health institutions in the state following the November 13 attack in Nembe during the PDP governorship campaign rally.
Out of the figure, he said 30 of them were in critical condition, with some of them undergoing surgeries for bullet wounds, while 62 had been discharged but still under medical surveillance.
On his part, the Secretary to the State Government, Kemela Okara, said the government had decided to set up an administrative panel to collate the names of missing persons, those who died from the disrupted rally as well as the injured for proper documentation and action.
In his remark, the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, urged Bayelsans to continue to be good citizens of the state.
