Enugu: Real Reason We’re Investing In Healthcare – Mbah

Listen to article

Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah has declared that his administration has prioritised healthcare delivery because it understands the importance of a healthy population and workforce.

Mbah, who pointed out that his administration was in the process of constructing 260 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in all electoral wards, and also ensure that every local council got at least one world class secondary health facility, vowed that his administration would not relent until every child, mother, the elderly and Enugu citizens have access to better healthcare.

This was as the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) commended Mbah-led administration’s commitment to healthcare and nutrition.

The governor stated this, at the weekend, during an inspection tour of a primary healthcentre at Ogononoeji Ndiuno, Akpugo, Nkanu West Council, where he also interacted with health workers and community leaders towards primary healthcare improvement.

Healthcare is at the core of what we do in Enugu. Indeed, outside education in our social services sector, the next sector that is taking the largest part of our 2024 budget is healthcare.

‘It is so because we understand the importance of having a healthy society and, indeed, a healthy workforce. And in that hierarchy of healthcare, we see primary healthcare as the most important.’

Meanwhile, as the yuletide approaches, the Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State Police Command, Daniel Ndukwe, has called on travellers and other Nigerians coming and going out of the state to plan for the season’s travels and expenditures.

He also cautioned them against night travels during the period.

Ndukwe called on Nigerians to travel through a known transportation company, while ensuring they register their details on the manifest.

If you travel by public transport, ensure you travel through a known transportation company.

‘Don’t forget to record your name and details on the travel manifest and send details of the vehicle you travel in to a loved one,’ he said in a statement on his X handle.

To those travelling in their private vehicles, Ndukwe charged them to ensure such vehicles are properly serviced and maintained.
