The Niger State Primary Health Care Development Agency says about 70 per cent of the people in the state lack access to adequate health care services.
Yahaya Na’uzo, the Executive Director of the Agency, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Thursday.
Na’uzo said that only people living in urban areas of the state like Minna, the state capital, Kontagora, Suleja and Bida were privileged to have good health care services because general hospitals are located there.
