The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has donated N20 million in order to establish a College of Nursing Sciences at the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital in Enugu State
On Monday, November 13, the former governor of Anambra State disclosed this in a post on his X account.
He claims that the measure is consistent with his pledge to fund vital sectors of the country’s growth, including as poverty eradication, health, and education.
His caption read, “Over the weekend, I visited Nsukka in Enugu State, where I donated N20 million to the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital, Nsukka. This is in line with my consistent commitment to investing in the most critical areas of national development, namely: health, education, and poverty eradication
“The donation is my initial support to the hospital through the Anglican Bishop of Nsukka, Rt Rev. Aloysius Agbo, to help them commence the building of a College of Nursing Sciences.
“Healthcare workers are at the centre of Primary Healthcare delivery, which is the foundation of any credible healthcare system.
“We must, therefore, take the training of healthcare workers more seriously, especially now that our dear nation and the global world are running short of these healthcare professionals.
“I thank the Bishop and his entire team at Faith Foundation Hospital for making this bold move to set up a College of Nursing Sciences.
“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.”
