The #FollowTheMoney (FTM) Team examined the 2016 Federal Ministry of Health’s Appropriation. It was revealed that N24.5 million ($80,328) was budgeted for the Construction of Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) at Uzebu, Oredo Local Government Area with the implementation agency being the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA). This appropriation is quite timely, considering the community of about 120,000 members does not have any PHC around to cater for them.

We have initiated the #BuildUzebu campaign to track the implementation of the N14.2 Million. Through this campaign, we call on all concerned public and private agencies, especially the NPHCDA to uphold the public interest through accountable and transparent management of the funds that have been released to construct the PHC. We invite the public to get involved in the Campaign today. Help us follow the money to ensure that the PHC is built for the local community members in order to provide adequate health care services to them.
