Health they said is wealth, in line with this narrative , the Telecommunication giant MTN in collaboration with Government of Abia State gives health sector a facelift. The Aba General Hospital and other hospitals in the state benefited from the MTN funding and initiative to bring the best medical services to the citizens of Abia. This is in line with their corporate social responsibility.
Okezie Ikpeazu has been lauded for this feat , it is said that a healthy economy is powered by healthy people.
Chisom Orji,a resident of Aba , the commercial city in Abia State has this to say
“Our vote will not go in favour of he who derives joy in attending burials and siphoning “burial” committee funds.The silent achiever has done well, and we must encourage him to do more come 2019″.
Not a mean feat to attract the MTN foundation to also, build 4 bedded hospitals in the 3 senatorial zones of Abia state. The Aba general hospital was in a state of disrepair and was about to be written of as a health facility before Ikpeazu came in and brought it back to life via MTN foundation.
With a mission to improve the quality of life in the area of Health, Education and Economic Empowerment on a sustainable basis. MTN foundation has been lauded on this stride, the Governor encouraged other corporate organization to take a cue from the Telco giant.
