The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has bestowed on the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, the “NMA Health Ambassador Award.”
In a citation read by its National President, Dr. Francis Adedayo Faduyile, during its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Akwa Ibom State in Thursday, Governor Emmanuel was lauded and celebrated for being a doctors’ and health-friendly Governor.
The National President commended the Governor for the massive investments he has made in the healthcare sector through the rebuilding, remodelling and reconstruction of numerous previously abandoned hospitals in the State, equipping them with modern amenities and fully digitalizing their operations.
While bestowing the award on the Governor, Dr. Faduyile hoped the feat performed by the Governor in healthcare delivery services in the State could be replicated all over the nation.
This award by the NMA on Governor Emmanuel is a testament to his nationally recognized bold approach at improving the healthcare services in Akwa Ibom State.
The Governor has always said that given the industries that he is attracting to the State to have the required manpower, a healthy population is needed for the jobs that are being created by these industries.
Governor Emmanuel will continue to do the right thing for the good people of Akwa Ibom State across sectors to the eternal grief of those who have sworn to push lies and malicious propaganda driven mainly by political and selfish considerations on his impactful and sterling performance.
Akwa Ibom is rising and it is forward ever, backward never!
