The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has donated N20 million to the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital in Enugu State to set up a College of Nursing Sciences.
The former governor of Anambra State revealed this in a post on his X handle on Monday, November 13.
According to him, the act is in line with his commitment to investing in critical areas of national development including health, education, and poverty eradication.

The donation, presented through the Anglican Bishop of Nsukka, Rt Rev. Aloysius Agbo, is intended to support the commencement of the construction of a College of Nursing Sciences at the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital, Nsukka.

 

 

Recognizing the pivotal role healthcare workers play in primary healthcare delivery, Peter Obi emphasized the need to prioritize training healthcare professionals, especially in the current context of a global shortage of these essential workers.

In expressing gratitude, Peter Obi commended the bold initiative the Bishop and the entire team at Faith Foundation Hospital took to establish a College of Nursing Sciences.

His caption read, “Over the weekend, I visited Nsukka in Enugu State, where I donated N20 million to the Faith Foundation Mission Hospital, Nsukka. This is in line with my consistent commitment to investing in the most critical areas of national development, namely: health, education, and poverty eradication.
“The donation is my initial support to the hospital through the Anglican Bishop of Nsukka, Rt Rev. Aloysius Agbo, to help them commence the building of a College of Nursing Sciences.
“Healthcare workers are at the centre of Primary Healthcare delivery, which is the foundation of any credible healthcare system.
“We must, therefore, take the training of healthcare workers more seriously, especially now that our dear nation and the global world are running short of these healthcare professionals.
“I thank the Bishop and his entire team at Faith Foundation Hospital for making this bold move to set up a College of Nursing Sciences.
“I will continue to support projects that will bring development to our nation and be beneficial to Nigerians, for in doing so, we will be able to build the New Nigeria of our dreams.”
