Stressing the importance of residency cards, the governor said,

“All pregnant women should go and get their residency cards, also known as ‘Kaadi Igbeayo’ so that they will be attended to free-of-charge at the Mother and Child Hospitals that we have established in the state.

Also every child under the age of five is entitled to free medical services in the state, if their parents have the residency cards. We have no other option than to take care of women.”
