Group hails Soludo on rehabilitation of Umueri General Hospital



ANAMBRA State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo and the President General (PG) of Umueri General Assembly, Chief Johnny Chukwudi Metchie, have been commended for the rehabilitation work going on at the Umueri General Hospital.

  The hospital was abandoned for years by previous administrations until the administration of former Governor Peter Obi rehabilitated it about 10 years ago. The hospital was again abandoned for eight years and was taken over by weeds and reptiles.

  A socio-cultural organisation, Umueri Diaspora Professionals (UDP), in a statement signed by its executive secretary, Martins Okpala Udo, on Friday, said members of the group and Umueri community in general, “are overwhelmed with joy because of the rapid development taking place in the area”, less than two months since Metchie became the PG.

  According to him, UDP was aware of the letter written to Soludo by Metchie, seeking his intervention to rehabilitate the general hospital and make it fully functional, among other requests and commended the governor for his quick response.

   “We are grateful to the governor of our state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, for his positive strides in Anambra currently. But we are particularly happy and, therefore, commend him for the quick response he made, to the letter of appeal written by our president general for intervention on the Umueri General Hospital.

  “Less than two months since Chief Metchie became the PG of Umueri General Assembly, a lot of developments have come to the community. Apart from the transformation of the hospital, we are aware of the restructuring of the security architecture and provision of working materials to the local vigilante, including communication gadgets, surveillance cameras, operational vehicle and others which have combined to make Umueri one of the most secured and peaceful areas in Anambra State today.

  “We are aware also of the training on skill acquisition undertaken and fully funded by the new PG, as well as provision of empowerment materials which benefitted hundreds of women, youths and physically-challenged people who can now fend for themselves as well as employ others,” UDP said.
