It was reported that the medical outreach would cover the nine local government areas in the zone.

Yareo said that in the previous outreaches, no fewer than 60,000 people benefited and currently targeting 5,000 to 6,000 beneficiaries in Lamurde.
“We have another major outreach for the grand finale that we are targeting 10,000 people in the central area to reach our target,” he said.
