“HEALTH IS WEALTH” …partnership that works.

In a wellness project to discourage self medication without seeking proper medical help and precise diagnosis; I went into partnership with Dr. Avanish, an Indian based medical practitioner and Dr. Olugu Ukpai, a Legal practitioner and President of the Canadian based NGO (CHAMA) Challenge Aids and Malaria in Africa.

2.) Today, 29th August 2019, I received his two partners in the wellness project at my country home in Ozu Abam. This visit, afforded me the opportunity to meet the indian, Dr. Avanish in person and took delivery of the $14,000 (Fourteen thousand dollars), QBC Laboratory Equipment.

3.) It is worthy to note that the equipment is one of its kind in the entire constituency and a product of their three (3) man wellness partnership for the benefit of the good people of Arochukwu/ Ohafia federal constituency. I, on behalf of my family, Abia State and my constituents appreciated Dr. Avanish and Dr. Olugu Ukpai.

4.) The equipment is an Epi-Fluorescence Microscopy that is widely used in life sciences. The technology obviously is an intelligent and smart option to quickly convert conventional compound light microscope into a fluorescent microscope and it is far more sensitive and specific compared with the conventional ones that are generally in use.

5.) Accordingly, WHO recommends its use for precise diagnosis and detection of many diseases like malaria, tuberculosis, microfilaria etc.

6.) It is a known fact that malaria and tuberculosis still remain a major public concern ravishing our rural communities; it is in view of the obvious advantages of the QBC laboratory equipment over the regular types, that the partnership, today provided this high-powered laboratory equipment to Ozu-Abam health center for proper diagnosis and cure of these aforementioned ailments.

7.) The pilot laboratory has been equipped today at the Primary Health Care centre in Ozu-Abam while arrangements are in top gear to have them established at least in each of the (8) eight clans that make up the Federal constituency.

8.) Dr Avanish conducted several tests with the machine at the centre and also trained the local nurses at the centre on how to operate the smart technology, that is largely user friendly.

9.) I also engaged the services of a professional Laboratory Scientist that will take up the operation of the equipment .

10.) I enjoins all to make use of this facility and also to avoid self medication. 
Health obviously is wealth.

Thank you
