The conditions at this health center may not be optimal, but it has been listed as one of the health centers to benefit from the next phase of renovation under the one PHC per ward policy."
The mother of the triplets, Mrs Rosemary Agba expressed gratitude to Cross Rivers State Government for sitting a PHC within her community which she could easily access. She said she was advised to go to a private hospital but she didn't have money, which was why she went to PHC where child birth is free.
