ASABA – The Rotary Club of Asaba, GRA unit, said it would support the Delta Government in ensuring the success of its healthcare programme by providing facilities in some care centres.
A member of the new Board of Directors of the club, Mr Edwin Ogidi-Gbegbaje, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Asaba.
Ogidi-Gbegbaje said that the club had already identified the needs of Okwe General Hospital, Asaba, and would upgrade facilities in the hospital.
He said, “We have observed that the Okwe General Hospital is in a bad shape and that something has to be done to assist the state government to make it better. “There are various areas in the hospital such as the wards, operating theatre, and even doctors’ offices where I think we can assist to make a difference.

He said that after Okwe, attention would be given to other health facilities around Asaba.
“We have put machinery in place to really support the government in giving the people good health care, because we believe that people need to be healthy to be able to work.
“Conscious effort is being made to ensure that we achieve what we have projected, within a period.
“We are doing this because we are mindful that government, given its numerous responsibilities, cannot do everything alone,” Ogidi-Gbegbaje said. (NAN)
