….As NMA Delta State Chapter Lays Secretariat Foundation
Delta State Governor Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has called on medical practitioners to exercise high level of professionalism in the healthcare delivery.
The governor said this on Thursday at the Foundation Laying Ceremony of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) Delta State Chapter in Asaba.
Governor Okowa explained that as medical practitioners it was imperative that they acted with decorum as well as obey the rules of any government where they work saying that “in every aspect of life and work process you should exhibit discipline because as medical practitioners the way you do your work will either earn you respect or disrespect and I plead with you that you should carry your shoulders high where ever you work, the kind of attitude you put up determines how other professionals will look at you and it will also determine the comments from your patients”.
The governor commended the Chairman and executives of the NMA Delta State Chapter on the achievement and assured them of his support saying “I know that this project is a tall task but i believe that with the commitment from everyone in this chapter the goal will be achieved; which means that each and every one of us has to do what we can committedly do, not just what we feel like doing, but what we can commitedly do to achieve the result that we have set for ourselves”.
In a brief address the Chairman of the state chapter Dr. Cletus Otene commended Governor Okowa for his support as well as the members of the association in achieving the project which he stated was achieved due to the dogged determination of the association.
