|Peter Obi Donates N2million for Upgrade of St Joseph’s School of Midwifery, Adazi-Nnukwu by Peculiar005(m): Mon Oct 2021 01:36pm|
In line with his constant support for critical areas of national development, Mr Peter Obi, former vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has again invested N2 million in St Joseph’s Hospital and St Joseph’s School of Midwifery, Adazi-Nnukwu, for upgrade.
He who made the cheque presentation to the proprietor of the hospital and Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, at the hospital premises over the weekend, reiterated the critical contribution of the health sector to the development of any nation.
Obi reminded the student nurses that their job was a call to greater service to humanity and encouraged them to remain open to their educational and moral formation so as to achieve a brighter future for themselves and build a better society for all.
“Nursing is a very noble profession, and so are other health workers. Our nation, and indeed, the world needs you. There is projection that the world will need more than 10 million nurses to fill in the gaps in the global health sector by 2030. The Nursing Council of Nigeria reports that there are 250,000 registered nurses in Nigeria, a country of 200 million people. You can now see the severe shortage of nurses already being witnessed in Nigeria. So, do your best to make positive impacts, while we continue support you,” Obi said.
Bishop Paulinus Ezeokathanked him for his consistent crusade for a better society and prayed God to continue to bless and give him a bigger platform to touch more lives positively.
Present at the event were Director of Health Services, Awka Diocese, Rev Fr Felix Efobi; Administrator of St Joseph’s Hospital, Rev Fr Jerome Okafor; Staff and Students of St Joseph’s Hospital and St Joseph’s School of Midwifery.
