The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, has poured encomiums on Delta State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, describing him as a trail-blazer in the reformation of the health sector.

He stated this on Thursday night at a banquet organized by the Delta State Government in honour of participants at the 62nd National Council on Health (NCH) Meeting in Asaba.

The minister enjoined other state governors to learn from Okowa how he was been able to record several successes in healthcare delivery services in the state in just few years.

He commended the governor for being a shining example. “We commend you (Governor Okowa) for being a shining example to other state governors as it concerns the health sector,” he said.

The minister pointed out that Okowa’s successes in contributory health insurance scheme, renovation and refurbishing of hospitals and primary healthcare centres and distribution of insecticide-treated nets all reflected in the seamless organization of NCH in Asaba.

In his remarks, Okowa said that his administration was building unity and strong partnership among Deltans and urged the Federal Government to borrow a leaf from it to make the country more peaceful and united.

In his words: “In this state, we are building unity and partnership among our people. We believe that since it has worked for us in achieving peace and accelerated development, it will work for Nigeria.

“For us to succeed in the health sector as a nation, we require a lot of partnership. The kind of stories that we have today do not place us well globally, and therefore, should be changed.

“There is nothing that we cannot achieve as a country once we set our mind on it,” Governor Okowa said.

The Governor went on to list other achievements of his administration’s, especially in infrastructure development in coastal communities. He assured that he would continue to partner with the Federal Ministry of Health and other stakeholders to develop the health sector.

The event also featured the presentation of gifts to the participants and entertainment of guests by Delta-born musicians and comedians.
