“APPEAL FOR MAINTENANCE AND UPGRADE OF OUR COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER
“Due to the time we are in and the need for better health care delivery all over the world, I am always in tears as I understand what our elderly, pregnant women and children in Nkerefi are passing through.
“Coupled with not having full access to those in position of authority in the state, failures by the governments of the day by not fulfilling their campaign promises of looking into and revitalizing the health sector of our community, I as a responsible indigene of our blessed town, Nkerefi Efiire and as a professional health worker, in pain, write to appeal for a functional and furnished state of the art Community Health Center for Nkerefi Efiire.
“I would like us to use our good offices as custodians of our community welfare through any channel of your choice Sirs and Madams, to reach out to our able brothers and sisters that are living at home, other States in Nigeria and those abroad to join hands together to make this dream a reality. “Asi na anyuko mmamiri onu, ogbo ufufu.”
“I want to use this means; Social Media Platforms and try to reach out to you all my special people including those I know and have their contacts, as well as those that I don’t have. We can all reach out to others and make sure this appeal is adhered and looked into and not swept under the carpet.
