Sequel to the completion of the Abia Central Senatorial zone edition of the Prof Gregory Ibe Free Medical and Surgical Outreach, arrangements have been concluded for the commencement of the Abia North Senatorial zone turn.
A press statement signed by Hon Boniface Ikwuagwu, Executive Secretary of Gregory Iyke Foundation, organizers of the outreach, reveals that the Abia North exercise will kick off with a flag off ceremony on Friday 12 August 2022 at Obimba Hall Amaekpu Ohafia.
According to Hon Ikwuagwu,” Having completed the Abia Central edition of our programme where the medical team handled a total of 2511 patients and dispensed 1652 medicated glasses, we are now set to commence the Abia North stanza. Subsequently, on Friday 12 August 2022, representatives of our Founder, Prof Gregory Ibe, the Abia state governorship candidate of APGA, will flag off the exercise in a colorful event that will take place at Obimba Hall, Amaekpu Ohafia. It is envisaged that the Abia state Deputy governorship candidate of APGA and member representing Aba South in Abia House of Assembly, Hon. Obinna Ichita will lead members of the Abia APGA State Working Committee and other distinguished personalities in flagging off the outreach”.
A comprehensive calendar contained in the press statement reveals that the seven-day outreach will cover different locations in Ohafia, Arochukwu, Bende and Isuikwuato Local Government Areas, adding that Umunneochi will be treated exclusively subsequently. The release therefore enjoined people of the area, especially those challenged by health to avail themselves the opportunity of benefitting from the exercise.
