Revival Of Rivers State Health Sector On Course — Wike

Abuja (Sundiata Post) — Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has assured that the ongoing revival of the health sector of the State will lead to improved access to quality healthcare.

Speaking in an interview at the weekend, Wike hinted that work at the 13 general hospitals being rehabilitated by his administration have reached advanced stage.

He noted that amongst the hospitals being rehabilitated are zonal hospitals, which will provide tertiary and secondary healthcare to the people.

According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant (Electronic Media), Simeon Nwakaudu, the governor said the Zonal Hospitals are located at Bori, Etche, Ahoada and Degema.

“Work has gone far in these hospitals. We are remodelling the hospitals and ensuring that we revive healthcare across the state,” he said.

The governor said that the essence of reviving the general hospitals was to bring healthcare close to the people wherever they reside.
