Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi
Anambra State governor, Mr. Peter Obi, has presented another cheque of N10 million for work to continue on the Dr. Joe Nwiloh Heart Centre at Saint Joseph Hospital, Adazi-Nnukwu. The Governor presented the cheque after inspecting the project recently.
He said that the state government embarked on the project in honour of the renowned world surgeon, Nwiloh, to encourage up-coming generations to emulate positive role models who have contributed to the growth and development of the society.
He explained that his administration will continue to recognise and honour those who have distinguished themselves in various fields of endeavour.
Governor Obi, who said he was encouraged by the pace and quality of work, promised to initiate more projects in the area soon.
Receiving the cheque, the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor, while thanking the Governor for the gesture, noted that people of the area are major beneficiary of the project.
Ezeokafor, who described Obi as the best governor Anambra has had, observed that the governor has remained steadfast in his drive to develop rural areas and provide them with basic necessities of life with his policy of pursuing the common good of all.
He assured that the funds would be judiciously used, while the church will uphold the existing partnership with the state.
