The Bayelsa State Government has formally launched its Safe Motherhood Scheme signalling the payment of monthly stipends to pregnant women in the state .The government said the launch was in line with its determination to reduce the incidence of maternal and infant mortality in the state .
Governor Seriake Dickson urged pregnant women in the state to register at the nearest healthcare provider and regularly attend antenatal services to enable them to benefit from the scheme .
The governor said the scheme would outlive his administration as appropriate measures such as the Health Insurance Scheme and medical health facilities had been provided across the 105 wards in the state to cater to the needs of people in the hinterlands .
In his remarks , the Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa , who was at the inauguration of the scheme on Wednesday was full of commendation for his Bayelsa counterpart , Seriake Dickson , whom he said had set very high marks in governance worthy of imitation by their colleagues.
He described Dickson as a trailblazer in the health sector as he was the first to initiate and implement the Safe Motherhood Scheme in the country .
