Quality Healthcare, Still Our Priority —Uduaghan

By Austine Etaghane
The Delta State Government has promised to continue to upgrade health facilities in the state to enable Deltans enjoy quality healthcare services.
Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan made the promise when Mr. Okeoghene Igwhiwotho, whom he saved from a chronic health condition, paid him a thank you visit with his parents. Dr. Uduaghan stated that sound healthcare delivery remained a major programme of his administration.
The governor said Okeoghene’s health condition gave him a challenge as it was almost hopeless, thanking God for the success of the medical treatment he received.
Uduaghan disclosed that he learnt of the beneficiary’s condition on social media, stating that he had to intervene when all hopes seemed lost for Okeoghene whose legs were at the verge of amputation.
His words: “I read about this case on social media and I was touched by the plight of the patient. Indeed from the account of the publication, there was no hope of survival for him. I contacted him and at the end sponsored him to India where he was treated.”
In his remarks, Okeoghene thanked the governor for intervening just when he had given up on life. He expressed happiness that he will still be useful to himself and society, noting that the governor’s gesture has changed his perception about life.
He, therefore, promised to establish a non-governmental organisation which will be used to help the less privileged in the society.
