Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere, has promised to revamp the state’s ailing Health Sector and Social Welfare scheme, if given the mantle of leadership in 2019.
He was of the opinion that “the sectors, which are at present in comatose, need urgent attention, backed with expert knowledge, for effective service delivery.”
Madumere made the promise yesterday, while commissioning the Alberta’s Foundation Secretariat in Owerri.
He lamented that “the level of decay in the sectors is affecting the living standard of the citizenry especially infant mortality rate, aged and other vulnerable members of the society.”
Prince Madumere highlighted the importance of affordable health care delivery system, even as he reasoned that its importance cannot be over emphasised.
While saying that he already has a blueprint on how to give the people the required health care delivery, the Deputy Governor emphasised on the relationship between the health sector and social welfare, explaining that “they are interwoven, since they focus on the well-being of the people, especially the less privileged.
“If elected, I will ensure provision of functional health care delivery and social welfare scheme that will cater for the vulnerable in the society, enhance opportunities for improving their living standard and productivity level”, Madumere said.
Welcoming his guests earlier, the Chief Executive of Alberta, Mr. Gideon Asilonu, promised to positively affect the lives of the citizenry through his foundation.
