Frontline contender for the Anambra State Governorship Election, Mr. Paul Orajiaka has disclosed his plan to revolutionize the health and electricity sector of the state.
Under his Security, Health, Electricity, Employment, Education and Road (SHEEER) agenda, Orajiaka had earlier unveiled a well applauded security master plan to secure Anambra State in the face of rising security challenges in the state.
In a press release made available to the media on Wednesday, the highly successful business Entrepreneur and Harvard trained scholar said his health scheme will focus on a system that gives priority to primary healthcare with plenty incentives for medical practitioners.
He said: “After security, health will be my next focus. With my experience earlier this year when my Paul Orajiaka Foundation, POF, provided free medical services to several communities in the three senatorial zones of the state, I came to realise the urgent need for critical health intervention at the grassroot.
“To this end, my health priority will be approached in five folds and will permeate every nook and cranny of the state. First, we will revitalize primary health care with infrastructural upgrades so every community will have a well-equipped health facility including the General Hospitals. Secondly, we will strengthen human resources for health by training and retraining all cadres of health workers and a welfare scheme to boost morale because it is only a well motivated medical team that can give it’s all to save lives.
“Thirdly, I will initiate a health insurance scheme that will cover all indigenes of the state. All over the world, health insurance has become a key driver of the health sector. I believe that with a strong partnership with the best insurance companies in the country, we can give a lifeline to our people without breaking the banks.
He said: “I will certainly encourage the power company already operational in the state, but I will also create alternatives for more private investors to come in. A single approach cannot guarantee my electricity target to light-up Anambra, so I will adopt a multidimensional system that brings all the available options into play.
