The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 elections, Mr Peter Obi, has visited and donated N1 million to Rex Universorum Hospital, Mmiata-Anam in Anambra State.

Obi, who donated the money at the hospital, recalled how his government built the Rex Universorum Hospital, Mmiata-Anam, the first in the entire local government.

The Anambra ormer governor said that he was full of happiness any time he realized that the hospital had effectively stopped the people of that area from travelling to other parts of the state to receive medical attention.

Handing over the cheque of N1 million to the hospital management, through the Hospital Administrator, Rev Sr Sapientia Ameke, the former governor said, “I am part of Anambra West. This was where I started my developmental projects when I became the governor. I know the history of Rex Universorum Hospital and the critical role it plays as the only hospital in Anambra West Local Government. I am proud of what Sr Ameke has achieved here with the little resources she has.

“I will continue to partner and support them for the benefit of this society”.

Responding, Sr Ameke appreciated Obi’s goodwill, recalling how, before his administration built the hospital, pregnant women, often in labour, had to travel by boat outside the local government to receive medical attention.

She said that Obi had always supported the hospital, while thanking Obi for coming to their aid and prayed God to bless him.
