Senator Elect for Abia North Senatorial zone and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu was urged the federal government to upgrade the federal Medical Center Umuahia to a specialist hospital.
Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu said this when he visited the Hospital today for a routine check up amidst cheers from his numerous admirers.
In his words to press men this morning, “you know I usually come here for regular check ups. I have already started pushing that this place be made a specialist hospital so that our people wouldn’t have to spend money travelling abroad and out of the state to access quality health care.”
Thereafter he proceeded to the hospitals wards where he paid the bills of the indigent ones amongst them who all thronged around congratulating him for his victory at the poll.
Dr. Kalu who was elected Senator representing Abia North senatorial zone was accompanied by his retinue of aides and supporters.
