Enugu state governor, Peter Mbah, yesterday, signed the Enugu State University of Medical and Applied Sciences (SUMAS) Teaching Hospital Bill 2024 into Law.

The governor promised to expedite action for the establishment of a teaching hospital that will provide quality training and healthcare services in the Enugu North area of the state and the state in general.

“What we have done by signing into law the Enugu State University of Medical and Applied Sciences Teaching Hospital Bill is that we now have in place a legal framework to immediately begin to put in place all that is required to upgrade SUMAS to a teaching hospital,” he said. “This is part of our campaign promises, and we are committed to delivering on that expeditiously,”.

He assured the governing council and the Management of SUMAS of his continued support, adding that his administration would equally be counting on their pedigree and contacts to bring the teaching hospital to fruition in record time.

“We are going to continue to support you, and we are also going to continue to count on your experience, network, and profile in raising resources to actualize the project.

On his part, Speaker of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Uchenna Ugwu commended Mbah’s commitment to delivering on his campaign promises, assuring that the House of Assembly was ready to fast-track every executive bill that would impact positively on the state and its people.

“We promised we are going to support this administration by doing our job expeditiously to ensure that there is no delay in your delivery of democracy dividends to our people,” he said.
