Contrary to speculations making rounds of the governor’s abandonment of the Warri Central Hospital, Warri, we would like to bring to the attention of well meaning Deltans of the plans, activities and successes of the administration as regards the Warri Central Hospital.
According to a statement from the office of the state Commissioner for Information, the state governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, in 2015 approved the remodeling and rehabilitation of the Renal Dialysis Building at the Central Hospital, Warri, to the tune of N32,877,421.05 .
This project has since been completed and commissioned.
In 2016, he approved monies for the repair of faulty medical equipment in ten hospitals across the State including Central Hospital, Warri, to the tune of N21,474,125.00.
Again, this project has since been completed and the equipment have been put to use in the various hospitals.
In 2017, the governor provided a new ambulance and incinerator for the hospital, approved two dialysis machines to be supplied to Warri Central Hospital, approved the engagement of 13 Consultants including General Surgeons and Paediatricians of whom a good number will be posted to Central Hospital Warri when they resume.
He also requested that a Bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation be sent to the Ministry of Energy in respect of the problem of power supply in Central Hospital Warri.
Similarly, the Ministry is about to forward to Ministry of Water Resources the request to assess the problem with water supply in the Central Hospital Warri.
All of these records are available for public scrutiny.
For the avoidance of doubt, the pictures and allegations circulated by some unscrupulous members of our society are mischievous and false and are intended to heat up the polity and stir up strife.
