(Last Updated On: 2022-06-23)


A collaborative agreement has been reached between Enugu State Government and the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) for the upgrade of the State Medical Diagnostic Centre, Enugu for the treatment of cancer, according to the state’s Commissioner for Health, Dr Emmanuel Obi.

Obi disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Enugu.

According to him, the agreement is based on a comprehensive Diagnostic and Oncology (Cancer) treatment Centre.

Obi disclosed that the State Executive Council (EXCO), sequel to the agreement, approved the evacuation of the existing equipment in the centre, as requested by NSIA to enable it to take over the health facility.

He added that the SEC also approved that the evacuated equipment would be put to good use at ESUT Teaching Hospital, Parklane, Enugu and other hospitals in the state.

The Health Commissioner also said that government “sees a greater opportunity for more efficient services to its citizens and beyond, through this collaboration”.
