Pregnant women who deliver at primary health care facilities in Abia state will receive the sum of N500, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has revealed.

The governor spoke during Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday.

“Abia State has keyed into the basic health insurance for pregnant women. If you give birth in any of our centres, you get N500,”
Mr Ikpeazu said.

“Delivery is free, they give you a delivery pack and N500, which is running for the vulnerable members of the society.”

Asked what the N500 could do for the women, the governor said “free delivery, are you asking a poor woman, what will she do with N500? Some people don’t have it.” “At least it will pay their way back home.”
