Gov. Okorocha has pledged to complete the 27 modern General Hospitals embarked upon by his administration before the second quarter of next year. He made this pledge during inspection of the hospitals in Mbaitoli Local Government Headquarters, Nwaorieubi.
In the words of His Excellency:
“Imo state will boast for fully equipped General hospitals in all the 27 local government areas by middle of next year.”
He said it was the priority and determination of his administration to provide adequate health-care delivery to improve the standard of living and ensure a healthy population required for economic growth of the state. He assured Imolites that the state government would continue to pay attention to critical sectors in the state to ensure that Imo becomes the industrial hub and health destination for the people in Nigeria and beyond, adding that his administration in line with its rescue mission is determined to offer Imolites first class medical facilities as obtained in other developed nations. He said that they will not rest until Imolites have access to quality and affordable health-care in all the local government areas to the cities across the state.
Gov. Okorocha also disclosed that some groups from the Diaspora have pledged to support his administration by building some hospitals in the state following his recent visit to the United States of America. He however, regretted that prior to his administration, there was no functional hospital in the state and gave the assurance to change the situation.
