Ebonyi State Government Wednesday, said that 10 boreholes would be sunk in Afikpo North as a way of tackling water scarcity in the Council and to curb the spread of Cholera in the area.
Governor Umahi while thanking the Chairman of Afikpo North Local Government Area, Mr. Uchenna Nnajiofor, the Commissioner for Health, Dan Umezurike and Health Workers at the facility for their efforts at saving the lives of the patients, said his administration would also construct modern toilets in the area within the next two weeks.
“The Commissioner for Water Resources, the Commissioner for Health and all the Leaders here will tell us where to sink 10 boreholes and construct toilets here, to start latest by 6th of January.”
The Governor also thanked Stakeholders of the area for their prompt response and urged them to continue to uphold peace in their domains.
“There is nothing as good peace, the same way we should not allow division to come in between us, when leaders struggle for supremacy, it is a terrible thing because there is a place for everybody.”
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Daniel Umezuruike said over 100 patients have been successfully managed at the Health facility and thanked the State Government for giving the Health Stakeholders the wherewithal.
The Governor later donated hundreds of bags of rice, wrappers, two cows and sums of money to the patients and health workers at the hospital.
