Press Corps hails FCTA for effective healthcare services
The administration of the Federal Capital Territory, FCTA, has been commended for improving the quality of healthcare services to residents.
The commendation was contained in a letter written to the FCT minister, Mallam Muhammad Bello, by the leadership of the FCT Minister's Press Corps.
According to the letter, the commendation became necessary due to the successful lower spine surgery carried on the corps' chairman, Mr. Attah Ikharo.
The surgery was done to address a bone disk prolapse on his lumbar vertebra, precisely between Lumber 4 and 5.
The corps added that a surgery many prefer to undergo in very standard private hospitals, both home and abroad was carried out at a general hospital in Abuja.
The group added that their hope in government-owned health facilities and the services has been further strengthened.
Also commended in the letter are the General Manager of the FCT Hospital Management Board, Dr Aminu Mai, and the Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Uche Afiomah, who were very supportive and ensured that the surgery was successful.
The corps charged the administration not to relent but work harder to build more health institutions due to the massive movement of people into the city on daily basis.
