*Nigeria: Why We Must Sustain Assistance To Church Hospitals -Obi
Masterweb Reports - Monday, July 23, 2012: Gov. Peter Obi has assured that his Government will continue to assist hospitals owned by the Church because, according to him, besides rendering affordable services to the people, they are also better managers. He said this yesterday, during the laying of foundation of hostel blocks his Government is building in many hospitals owned by the Churches. Those visited yesterday are St Charles Borromeo, Waterside and Iyienu Hospital, Ogidi.
At all the hospitals, where the Governor laid foundations for one project or the other, the Governor said he was satisfied with the progress of those buildings already begun and asked the owners to pursue with vigour the building of those he laid their foundations, assuring them that money will not be the problem. In his words, "I am happy over the progress of work, if it were Government work, I am sure all manner of variations would have been introduced by now."
Speaking at St Charles Borromeo, Archbishop Valarian Okeke thanked God for the Governor, whom he described as God's precious gift to Anambra State. He said that his love for the State and unmatchable efforts to leave the legacy of peace and development for generations yet unborn was not in doubt. ( Continues below..... )

In his own remarks, the Anglican Bishop of Onitsha, Owen Nwokolo, at Iyienu Hospitals said the people of the State were delighted at the partnership between The Government and the Church for the moral health of the State. He thanked the Governor for using the resources of the State to work for the people of the State.
The Governor had earlier visited St Christopher School owned by Anglican Diocese of Onitsha and Dominican College owned by the Catholic Diocese of Onitsha. At both schools, he vowed to continue visiting schools against the advice of those that want him to visit those that are politically relevant, insisting that those students were the future of the society.
It will be recalled that Mr. Chudi Offodile condemned the visit to schools as too pedestal for a Governor.
