Adamawa State governor Muhammadu Jibrilla has provided office accommodation for staff of National Population Commission (NPC) in 20 local government areas of the state.
The governor stated this at flagging-off the birth registration exercise in Yola noting that the state government is commitment to ensure the success of the exercise across the state.
Massive Birth Registration exercise is a weeklong exercise carried out by National Population Commission (NPC) in collaboration with UNICEF and European Union to ensure that every child is registered across the state.
Represented by the Commissioner for Health, Fatima Atiku Abubakar, the governor said his administration is very much aware of the numerous benefits of birth registration to both the individual and the society, while calling on parents to come out enmass to register their children.
“The daily registration of our children is indeed very essential as its provides data needed for population estimation, projection and other analytical studies, useful for all demographic planning and research in the state and nation as a whole.
“Adamawa State therefore is committed to supporting such programme aimed at improving the wellbeing of children in the state and will therefore not relent in providing the enabling environment for the smooth implementation of the programme in collaboration with NPC and the donor agencies like UNICEF in the state.”
