The Ebonyi State School of Health Technology, Ngbo has matriculated 525 students for the 2015/2016 academic session into the three accredited departments, Environmental Health, Community Health and Health Information Management.
In his remarks at the ceremony recently, the Principal of the school, Emmanuel Okoro, charged the students to take their studies seriously, saying that the management is determined to erase the impression that the school’s certificate is easy to secure without hard work.
He explained that the school is undergoing transformation and commended the visitor, Governor David Umahi for his disposition towards the health sector.
The governor, represented by the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Daniel Umezuruike, said the state government is preparing a bill to upgrade the school to a diploma awarding institution.
He urged the management not to relent in the transformation of the institution, adding that the infrastructural challenges facing the institution are receiving attention.
