Ekochin said that availability of appropriate manpower would be considered before their distribution to the health facilities, to avoid under utilisation.

“The equipment are highly specialised. They will be going to our teaching Hospitals.

“The rest will go to our district hospitals, provided we are able to secure agreement with specialists who will utilise them,’’ he said.

The President of Soroptimist International, Mrs Rose Ezenwa, while presenting the items, said the NGO was committed to helping the society’s poor and vulnerable to access quality medical care.

Ezenwa commended Ugwuanyi’s remarkable strides in enthroning impactful governance, especially in the health sector and assured him that they would continue to attract donor agencies from across the world to Enugu State.
