Fubara: Better healthcare drives development

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, underscores the indispensable link between healthcare and societal development, emphasizing that any developmental endeavor would falter without prioritizing the health of the populace.

Fubara articulated this stance during a meeting with a delegation from the Nigerian Medical Association, led by its National President, Dr. Uche Ojinmah, as reported by his Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chulwudi. The gathering took place at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

During the interaction, Fubara announced the appointment of Prof. Chizindu Alikor as the Chief Medical Director of Rivers State University Teaching Hospital, solidifying the commitment to advancing healthcare leadership in the region.

Highlighting the integral role of healthcare in fostering productivity and progress, Fubara stressed, “Healthcare and development are inseparable. Without good health, productivity suffers, rendering any developmental initiatives ineffective.”

The governor affirmed ongoing efforts to fortify health infrastructure, especially intermediary facilities, and pledged to revive zonal hospitals while ensuring the welfare and motivation of healthcare personnel, acknowledging their critical partnership in governance.

Dr. Ojinmah commended the governor’s responsiveness to the concerns of medical workers, recalling previous appeals for improved working conditions which had been overlooked. He lauded Fubara’s proactive steps in addressing these issues, including the recruitment of more personnel and revitalizing the NMA secretariat.

Echoing Dr. Ojinmah’s sentiments, Dr. Ebi Robinson, the state chairman of NMA, affirmed that the implementation of enhanced welfare packages had bolstered the morale of medical professionals, fueling their dedication to enhancing healthcare delivery for the benefit of Rivers State residents.
