WIFE of Governor of Anambra State, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano has reassured Ogbaru communities that they will soon have functional Primary Health Centre (PHC) and good road networks.

She gave the assurance at Ogbaru Local Government Secretariat, Atani, during her recent visit to the local government area..

“I am shocked at the deplorable state of all Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs), especially the one in Ogwu-Aniocha.

“ My Foundation, `Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE)’ in conjunction with state government will bring stable and lasting solutions to PHCs in the state.

“This will help to stem maternal mortality rate in communities and beyond, while paving access roads for traders and farmers,” she said.

In a speech, the Transition Committee Chairman, Mr Arinzechukwu Awogu, noted that Ogbaru evidently benefitted from Mrs Obiano’s many empowerment programmes, as well as support to youths.

“The youths have gained a lot through training in skills acquisition.Your economic empowerment programmes under your CAFE initiative has in less than a year, helped to build houses for two young widows in Ossamala and Umunankwo communities.

“You also provided water boreholes for people’s usage. The support for quality healthcare for pregnant women, children and physically challenged persons, including rehabilitating mentally deranged persons are worthy of emulation, he said.

According to the chairman, “Not less than 16 communities in Ogbaru have benefitted from the 2019 Mother’s Summit; some of them are beneficiaries of all kinds of food processing and palm oil processing machines.

“You are  Mother Theresa of our time; Ogbaru is proud of you,” Awogu said.

Presentation of bags of rice, school bags and writing materials to children, including cash gifts to the aged and less privileged by   Mrs Obiano added glamour to the occasion.
