Ozubulu shootings: Minister applauds NAUTH for quick intervention

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has ap­plauded the manage­ment and staff of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) Nnewi, for their quick response to the recent killings in a Catho­lic Church at Ozubulu area of Anambra state.
The minister who gave the commendation while com­missioning a N50 million ul­tramodern pediatrics complex at NAUTH, said the prompt response of the health facility reduced drastically the level of causalities recorded.
The bed spaces of the pedi­atrics complex were recently increased from 50 to 54 with 12 well- furnished offices for consultants.
Adewole, however, reas­sured that the health ministry would expedite action on the commissioning of the hospi­tal’s permanent site and that he is passionately committed to completing the project be­fore the end of 2018.
Speaking earlier, the CMD of NAUTH, Prof Anthony Ig­wegbe disclosed that the pe­diatrics complex was built through the Internally Gen­erated Revenue (IGR) of the hospital.
