According to the DG, CRSPHCDA, Dr. Betta Edu, the President’s wife “was selected for the commissioning because we see her as a maternal and child health advocate, who is championing the cause for women and child health in Nigeria and we equally see Dr. Linda Ayade as another champion and so we decided that for this week, we should be having the presence of these champions advocating and mobilizing resources to tackle maternal and child health issues”.
