Governor Ayade Has Come To Our Rescue In Egbe Mbube Ogoja, Building For Us a New Health Centre




The chiefs and community members have thanked Senator Ben Ayade for rescuing the entire ward from a quack-mere of hopelessness. The clan Head who spoke said “Egbe- mgbube is a large ward in Ogoja Local Government with over 30,000 people with no access to quality health care services or portable drinking water. We do not have any hospital for our pregnant women or our sick children to run to. I can recount several cases  where we lost our wives and children on their way to the next Health center in another ward miles away.”


In 2017 our people cried to Governor Ben Ayade through Dr Betta Edu the young energetic Health commissioner. Dr Edu with so much passion for her job had made several trips in person to asses the ward, see communities and interact with community members. She initially suggested that we use some part of the existing school block in the main time as we await the Governors quick intervention to save lives. However that was not possible as school authorities didn’t grant approval. 





Today we are so grateful that Dr Betta Edu is back on behalf of her Boss to not just lay the foundation stone for the facility but dig a bore hole to help the community access clean water while fast tracking the job which is almost at lintel level. We can’t thank the Governor enough, Egbe mgbube remains ever grateful for this life saving gesture.


The Commissioner for Health Dr Betta Edu thanked the clan for keeping faith with the Governor and waiting patiently to get a befitting Health center. “ Sen Ben Ayade is truly God sent, his passion for humanity and commitment to Cross River state will always see him delivering on his promises. Most times delays are never his fault but caused by Government bureaucracy.  I am happy that even with the very little resources available to the state the Governor have been able to do so much even in the health sector. This health facility will be completed in a short time and we will offer quality services to this ward. The communities can begin to use the bore hole for water ahead of the commissioning of the facility. 


The DG CRSPHCDA who was in the company of the commissioner promised to ensure training for health workers who will be posted there soon.
