Peter Obi Donates N100m To Upgrade Shanahan Nursing, Midwifery School To College

Mr Peter Obi, former Governor of Anambra, has donated N100m to Bishop Shanahan Specialist Hospital Nsukka (BSSHN) to upgrade its School of Nursing and Midwifery to a College.

BSSHN is a missionary hospital owned and managed by Nsukka Catholic Diocese.

Obi made the donation in Nsukka, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State on Tuesday when he paid a visit to Shanahan School of Nursing and Midwifery.

He said nurses and midwifes remained the foundation of primary healthcare in any country.

“Nurses and midwifes are very fundamental in our primary healthcare and entire health sector.

“If they are equipped and well trained, infant and maternal mortality will be reduced to the barest minimum.

“Investment on health sector is investment on health of humanity,” he said.

Obi said that his visit was as a result of phone call conversation he had with the Administrator of BSSHN, Rev Fr. Greg Onah, who solicited for help to enable the hospital to upgrade its school of nursing and midwifery to a college.

“The N100m I donated today is to ensure that the school is upgraded to a College of Nursing and Midwifery from now to 2023,” he said.

The Peoples Democratic Party Vice-presidential candidate in 2019 general elections urged Bishop Godfrey Onah of Nsukka Catholic Diocese and other church leaders to continue to pray for the country.

“The church should continue to pray for Nigeria especially now the country is facing serious security challenges,” he said.

In a remark, Onah thanked Obi for his generosity and assured him of judicious use of the amount.
