Late Senator Francis Nzeribe has been immortalized by the Governor of Imo state, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
The late senator was immortalized when a Newly built Hospital and a link bridge were named after him Friday September 8, 2023.
Governor Hope Uzodinma, in a bid to enhance healthcare accessibility and infrastructure in Imo State, commissioned a state-of-the-art 42-bed general hospital in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo state Nigeria.
During the commissioning, the Governor disclosed that the vital addition aims to significantly reduce the tragic 75% mortality rate caused by inadequate healthcare facilities.
The Governor reaffirmed his administration’s unwavering dedication to directing the 13% derivation funds towards the betterment of Ndi Imo, ensuring collective prosperity.
In honor of the Late Senator Francis Nzeribe, a luminary figure in Imo State’s history, the New General Hospital bears his name, recognizing his immense contributions to the state and the nation at Large.
In addition to this healthcare milestone, Governor Hope Uzodinma also commissioned a 12-meter asphalted bridge connecting six communities in OGUTA and establishing a link to ANAMBRA State.
The event took place Friday at a closure of his address to the troops of membership at a one million walk by Hope Community Vanguard group who stormed at government House in the mid hours of the day.
There is no doubt the fact that this achievement by Governor Uzodinma comes after five decades of abandonment, showcasing the commitment of the Shared Prosperity Government to infrastructural development.
The Oguta people and Imo state at large are very happy over the massive development in the state and mostly the recent recognition of one among the distinguished Imo statesman, Late Francis Arthur Nzeribe.
