The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) says Nasarawa state has reclaimed its center stage position from Jigawa state after 48 hours, in the COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign in Nigeria.

The Executive Director, NPHCDA, Dr. Faisal Shuaib, made this known in an interview with newsmen on Monday in Abuja, while providing an update on the country’s vaccination campaign.

Shuaib said that Jigawa state recently took the lead by displacing Nasarawa state, only for a turnaround in less than 48 hours.

The NPHCDA boss added that Zamfara, Delta and Cross River states have also made great strides towards joining the top five performing states as of Dec. 27, 2021.

He added that Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Jigawa and Osun were the top five leading with high uptake and also contributed 36 per cent to the number of vaccinated persons.

Shuaib added that almost 10 million eligible persons have been fully vaccinated against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
