The Concept

  • Bayelsa State is located in the South-South region of Nigeria, which is in the core Niger Delta Region. This region is a low-lying plain riddled with an intricate system of water channels through which the Niger finds its way into the ocean. It is a terrain that is scarred by a network of tributaries, creeks and rivers. Last year, a majority of the state capital and some Local Government Areas, as well as some communities were overrun by flood. Thus, making increasing Covid-19 coverage in the state a major challenge.
  • Bayelsa State is currently a major hub for the Nigerian Navy, with strategic Naval Bases and personnel. The Nigerian Airforce, Army, and Nigeria Police have several Barracks; populated by their personnel and family members. Similarly, the FRSC, Nigeria Immigration, Nigeria Customs Service, the Nigeria Security &Civil Defense Corp and other Paramilitary agencies have formations in Bayelsa. 
  • But it is very pertinent to note that, a high percentage of these people are either partially vaccinated or have Zero doses of the Covid-19 vaccines administered. Again, the ever-volatile security situation, is making the plethora of military and paramilitary squads to be moving from one location to the other. Which is making it difficult to track and pin them down at a particular location. This is one of the reasons why Bayelsastate in the last part of 2022 was amongst the low-performing states in the federation; in terms of Covid-19 coverage.
  • Thus, making this category of Military and Paramilitary personnel to be of topmost priority.Closely aligned to the above, is the glaring challenge that is posed by the numerous hard-to-reach; due to their riverine terrains. M-RITE conducted a zero-dose analysis for COVID-19 in the Military and Paramilitary Bases and formations in Bayelsastate, and the results showed onlya few of the personnel have been vaccinated.
  • Thus, because we are targeting to vaccinate 15,000 of the Military and Paramilitary personnel; this will contribute to a sharp increase in the COVID-19 coverage in Bayelsa state by an additional 17%. From the current 23%, which is edging the state closer to achieving 70% of the national target by May 2023.
