Abia State commissioner for health, Joe Osuji, said the six years administration of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has changed the narrative in the health sector in the state in many ways.
In an exclusive interview with LEADERSHIP Friday in Umuahia, the state capital, Osuji said the tele-health initiative, which is a brainchild of the governor, has added impetus to the sector.
He added that the administration has also done well in sustaining its geriatric home services, which he said had gone a long way to bring succour to the less privileged and vulnerable.
Osuji, who maintained that there have been great improvements at the health centres, appealed to the people to avail themselves of the services, which he said are comparable with that of general hospitals.
On the ongoing second phase of the COVID-19 vaccination, the commissioner said the ministry had put on ground everything required to make it a success just as the first phase was successfully executed.
He said it is already in public domain that the state recorded an impressive record in the onslaught against the pandemic, which he attributed to the support of Ikpeazu.
“Even at that, we have sustained our campaign against the pandemic just as we have been updating, providing supplies, and equipping the isolation centres according to the situation,” Osuji said.
