This is commendable. Though, I feel sad that,after 18 years of uninterrupted democracy, we still celebrate basic infrastructures. We ought to have gone past this in Nigeria. Nonetheless, I commend your effort

You know I was discussing with my colleague and this issue of security vote come up. I think his govt like every other is a fraud. He could clear up the areas of Abia poly workers if he wants, but no what he did was to threaten them to resume without salary or get sacked

This is bull shit.. okezie keeps building infrastructures in his local govt of origin. Abia state university Hospital and other pri health centres are dying yet he is opening hospitals. I hope this doesnt end as ikwuano general hospital the past governor commissioned and its not functional. IKPEAZU go and pay ur workers salary since july. Stop building houses for lizards because its obvious u wont be able to employ staff

In this Age and time, hospitals as still built in open wards without privacy and with these mediocre hospital beds. We definitely have a long way to go because no one uses these kind of hospital beds and designs any where in the world. This is indeed sad that these politicians visit hospital facilities abroad and still come home and do otherwise.
