The Faith Foundation Mission Hospital in Enugu State will receive a N20 million donation from Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi in order to establish a College of Nursing Sciences.
On Monday, November 13, the former Anambra State governor made this revelation in a post on his X account.
He claims that the measure complies with his pledge to fund vital national development initiatives including health, education, and the eradication of poverty.
He posted the following caption: “I went to Nsukka, Enugu State, over the weekend, and I gave N20 million to the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital, Nsukka. This aligns with my steadfast dedication to funding the three most important sectors of national development—health, education, and the eradication of poverty.
“The gift is my first contribution to the hospital, made possible by the Anglican Bishop of Nsukka, Rt Rev. Aloysius Agbo, to assist them in starting the construction of a College of Nursing Sciences.
“The core of any reputable healthcare system is primary healthcare delivery, which puts healthcare professionals at its center.
Since there is a shortage of healthcare experts in both our beloved country and the rest of the globe, we must, therefore, give the training of healthcare workers greater importance.
“This daring decision to establish a College of Nursing Sciences is much appreciated by the Bishop and his entire staff at Faith Foundation Hospital.
“I will continue to support projects that will bring development to our nation and be beneficial to Nigerians, for in so doing, we will be able to build the New Nigeria of our dreams.”
