JUBILATION AS ENUGU REP DEPUTY MINORITY LEADER, OKECHUKWU MAKES SURPRISE VISIT AT VENUE OF FREE MEDICAL OUTREACH (PHOTO NEWS)

Hon. Toby Okechukwu, the Deputy Minority Leader and member representing Aninri, Awgu and Oji-River federal constituency have thanked doctors, nurses and health care workers for making the 3 days free medical outreach which he sponsored in his constituency a success.

He said this on Wednesday the 3rd of November during his visit to UNTH Outpost Ugbo, the venue of the medical outreach where he also expressed his sadness that the outreach had to be cut short due to the sit-at-home order declared by IPOB which was to begin on the 5th of November.

The villagers who had nothing but thanks and prayers for the Honourable for making this possible were extremely happy when he graced them with his presence on the second day of the event.

When they asked him why he came up with the annual intervention he reminded them that a healthy people is a wealthy people and as such he will keep doing such for his constituency.

“This is an effort to complement the efforts of the state government regarding healthy care. And its deliberately meant to be done in rural communities. This has been done in Joint Hospital Achi, it has also been done in Nenwe cottage hospital too, and also been done in Awgu General Hospital, and Mother of Mercy hospital Ihe, and we are doing it to spread across our communities to make sure that it has the right impact.

“Today we are here at Ugbo and the UNTH health care workers are going to test this facility as they have gotten an outpost for this area and for rural communities.

Speaking on his expectations for the outpost, he said “Our expectation is that it will be properly equipped as a hospital so that instead of going to UNTH in town people can come here, see medical doctors, see pharmacists, and see nurses and receive adequate healthcare.

“And essentially this is an intervention, and we will continue to do this annually. Unfortunately the security situation will not allow doctors on the move to stay as long as they would want to but we will continue this next year”, he said concluding.
