By Bashir Hassan Abubakar

The Center for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has expressed its readiness to partner with the Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency (BSPHCDA) in creating more awareness in the ongoing Covid 19 vaccination campaign across the State.

This was disclosed on Tuesday by the CITAD Covid 19 Vaccination Champion Hajiya Halima Ibrahim Dimis when she led a group of journalists on an advocacy visit to the Executive Chairman (EC) of BSPHCDA Dr. Rilwanu Mohammed in his office.

Hajiya Dimis said that the objective of visit was to make the presence of CITAD felt and also seek for areas of collaboration with the Agency in the ongoing Covid 19 Vaccination exercise embarked upon by the Agency.

The CITAD Covid-19 Vaccination Champion also informed the EC of the Center’s intentions of going round some health facilities to create more awareness on the efficacy of Covid Vaccines and the need for people to get vaccinated.

Dimis commended the Agency for its doggedness and perseverance towards curtailing the spread of Covid 19 and other communicable diseases in Bauchi State, describing it as, “reassuring”.

“We thank you most sincerely for receiving us. We will be coming from time to time for information to enable us carry out our awareness campaign in a manner that would be more robust, all-encompassing and data driven”.

In his response, the EC of BSPHCDA, Dr. Rilwanu Mohammed commended CITAD for their foresight in the planning of the proposed Covid 19 Vaccination awareness campaign, which he said was timely.

Dr. Mohammed said that the Agency is always ready to collaborate with corporate organizations or individuals who may add value in the Agency’s efforts towards vaccinating people against the dreaded Covid 19 virus and also making health care accessible to all citizens of Bauchi State.

“Your resolve to start the Covid 19 Vaccination awareness campaign couldn’t have come at a better time. At the moment, the misinformation going on social media is having a negative effect and creating distrust in the minds of some people about the good intentions of the Covid 19 vaccination exercise”.

“The agency is not going to be deterred in our resolve to keep on the Covid 19 vaccination campaign. The coming of organisations like CITAD to support us in awareness creation is certainly a welcome development and we appreciate you for this. Our doors are open for any information you may seek to make your campaign more effective, efficient and impactful”, said Dr. Rilwanu Mohammed.
