reducing the financial burden of healthcare on Civil Servants, we are offering
a lifeline to families striving for a healthy future. By covering the health
insurance premiums of identified vulnerable citizens, we extend
compassionate hand to those who need it most. These initiatives are not
abstract; they are stories of lives changed, futures secured, and communities
thriving.”
“The essence of our commitment to Education goes beyond bricks and
mortar; it lies in the dreams of every child who now has access to quality
learning environments.  Picture a student in a rural community, now
equipped with the tools and facilities necessary to unlock their full potential”

“Consider the 189 Health Workers strategically employed for our General
Hospitals 36 of whom are doctors. They are not just professionals filling
positions; they are the compassionate hands that heal, the reassuring voices
that comfort, and the pillars of our healthcare system.”
“Reflect on the empowerment of 500 Ebonyi indigenes through EBSMEDA
grants. These are not just financial disbursements, they are investments in
dreams, businesses, and the economic resilience of our people.” The Governor said.
The Governor commended the House of Assembly for their partnership through speedy passage of enabling laws.

arm of the State”
