Report reaching our News Room says the senator representing Anambra North Senatorial Zone,Princess Stella Adaeze Oduah has attracted sophisticated solar power supply grid worth N60 million to three hospitals in Onitsha.
The hospitals are,the General Hospital Onitsha,Borromeo hospital and Waterside hospital and maternity Onitsha.
The report revealed that the solar power grid of 15 KVA costing N20 million Naira for each for the three hospitals would also have 3 brand new Mikano generators of the same capacity or more to serve as a backup for the solar grid when there is not enough sunshine to recharge the solar batteries especially during cloudy rainy periods.
Senator Stella Oduah has been in the forefront of attracting several other facilities which promote development and living standards of the people in her Senatorial Zone.
Many roads and streets across the area have been rehabilitated and provided with solar street lights and in some locations water boreholes provided to improve sanitation and well being of the people across the seven local government areas of her constituency.
Speaking to the media on the solar power projects in various hospitals, one of the officials handling the project Mr Charles Umunna pointed out that the solar project was a strategic measure to end the perennial power outages in the hospitals to enhance uninterrupted health care delivery to the citizens.
According to Umunna,the solar power project would not end at the hospitals but would likely be installed in many others.
Reacting to the good news of provision of the solar project,management of the St. Charles Borromeo Specialist Hospital Onitsha said in its Facebook post that it has reached another milestone in her dream of maintaining her status as the biggest private hospital in West Africa adding that the hospital’s dedication to saving lives have earned them a new solar mini grid power system project.
According to them,the project is facilitated by the Distinguished Senator Princess Stella Adaeze Oduah (OON) of Anambra North SENATORIAL ZONE, which is aimed at ensuring that the power need of our institution is met.
We are indeed grateful to God for His benevolence and the gift of expansion to our hospital. We also appreciate the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial zone, Sen. Stella Adaeze Oduah, for her outstanding performance. We pray Gods continued blessings on her.
