3. I WISH, BY THIS LETTER, TO UPDATE YOU ON THE PROGRESS RECORDED SO FAR, IN FULFILLMENT OF THE CAMPAIGN PROMISES WHICH I MADE TO YOU ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. YOU ARE A WITNESS TO MILESTONE DEVELOPMENTAL PROJECTS SCATTERED ACROSS THE STATE IN FULFILMENT OF MY ADMINISTRATION’S “SMART” AGENDA. IN THE HEALTH SECTOR, DELTA IS THE FIRST STATE TO LAUNCH UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE IT’S CITIZENS, MORE THAN 486,000 PERSONS ARE ALREADY ENROLLED INTO THE SCHEME. PRIMARY HEALTHCARE CENTRES, GENERAL AND CENTRAL HOSPITALS HAVE BEEN UPGRADED AND FULLY EQUIPPED WHILE THE DELTA STATE UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL HAS BEEN EQUIPPED WITH STATE OF THE ART MEDICAL EQUIPMENTS. ROAD PROJECTS: MORE THAN 360 ROADS PROJECTS ALREADY EXECUTED AND STILL COUNTING.
