As Imo Diasporans Rally Round Hon. Cllr. Celia Osakwe-Hibbert
By Olalekan Balogun
Life is about to get better for Imolites as for the first time in the history of Imo State, the Government is obsessed by the possibilities of better healthcare development in the State, unleashing several ambulances and most recently, mobile clinics all free of charge for its citizens.
This aggressive approach to the improvement of our healthcare system in the State, fostered by the Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma has gingered the Diaspora community into total support of the healthcare project in Imo and as a result, Imo citizens living in the Diaspora otherwise called Imo Diasporans, have opened up a serious conversation with the Governor’s Diaspora Office on strategies that can be used to support the State’s ongoing ‘recovering’ of our healthcare agenda.
To this effect a dozen of Imo Diasporans who are healthcare professionals, including Doctors, Optometrists, Nurses etc, have met with the SA Diaspora Affairs, Hon. Celia Osakwe-Hibbert, to discuss ways in which Diasporans can render their practical support to further propel the state’s ‘better life’ agenda.
Verifiable information reaching The Street Reporters Newspaper, confirms that following the meeting between the healthcare professionals led by Dr. Emeka Okoro and SA Diaspora Affairs, a group of Diasporas in Boston Massachusetts, have already met to discuss ways of immediately commencing on some projects focusing on health, through the Imo Diaspora Office.
According to sources within the Imo Diasporans, many more groups are set to follow suit amid the ongoing post-COVID-19 international borders openings.
In a chat with newsmen, Hon Celia Osakwe-Hibbert said, “My delight is that living in Imo will soon be an ambition to those who want to live a longer, healthier and better life. Average life expectancy in Imo will rise by 12% this in itself is historic!
“The mission to achieve this feat will be a joined up approach by different stakeholders so that we can score the big results we are aiming for.
“My Boss, the Governor is aggressively setting up mechanisms for indigenes to access quick medical intervention; response vehicles meeting patients at their points of need not the opposite like the case has been in the past.
“Mortality rates will practically decrease”, Hon. Celia Osakwe-Hibbert stated.
She further noted that the level of seriousness from our Governor, is attracting more Diasporans especially from America and Asia.
“I’m excited to see this accelerated change happening in our State, in my lifetime”, she observed.
