Administrator of St. Philomena’s Catholic Hospital and College of Nursing Sciences, Benin City, Edo State, Rev Fr Michael Oyanoafo, says former vice-presidential candidate Peter Obi would build a better Nigeria if given the chance.
Oyanoafo spoke at the hospital when Mr Obi visited and presented them a cheque of N2 million to enable the hospital to continue delivering good health care to the society.
The cleric said Obi has remained consistent in his true nature of generosity and kindness. According to him, Obi has always shown uncommon passion in contributing to a better society, even before he assumed office as the governor of Anambra State, while he was in office and even now that he is not holding any public office.
“It is rare in this part of the world to see people walk into a hospital with the sole aim of giving to the hospital and to the poor. We are really amazed by Obi’s kind gesture. It is obvious that when given the opportunity, he would transform our nation for better,” Oyanoafo said.
Obi stated his resolve to continue contributing to nation-building. He explained that he has always prioritised poverty eradication, education and health as avenues that should be invested in, in the society because they are the critical areas of national development.
Obi praised the proprietor of the hospital and Catholic archbishop of Benin Archdiocese, Most Rev Augustine Akubueze, and the hospital’s management, for their service to Nigerian society through the hospital. He called on the government to support the hospital in rendering their very critical service to society.
