The Federal Government, through the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), has announced Osun State as the overall Best Performing State in the just-concluded Immunization Vaccination Outbreak Response (OBR1) programme for December 2022.
This is contained in the congratulatory letter by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), dated January 11, 2023, and addressed to the Executive Secretary of the State Agency, Dr Adebukola Olujide.
According to National Primary Health Care Development Agency, the selection process was backed by data and was rigorously scrutinised by partners.
Dr Adebukola Olujide also appreciated the management and staff of the agency for their tremendous achievement and encouraged them to do more.
“The reward for hard work is more work. Let us continue to remain committed to the cause of ensuring that all Osun people are protected against preventable diseases,” Olujide added.
She then urged all health workers in the state to see the award as an appreciation for a job well done and motivation for more outstanding performance.
"On behalf of the Governor and good people of Osun State, I appreciate the support of all stakeholders in the State without whose collaboration this monumental achievement and award would have been impossible."
