Ebonyi University Teaching Hospital renamed after Alex Ekwueme
The Federal Government has renamed Ebonyi University Teaching Hospital to Alex Ekwueme University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, after its approval. Alhaji Ahmed Ramalan, Chairman of the Hospital’s Board who confirmed that FG has renamed Ebonyi University Teaching Hospital, said the renaming takes off with immediate effect.
According to him, Prof. Isaac Adewole, the Minister of Health, gave the approval on behalf of the government as it is important to bring the action to the notice of the people of Ebonyi, and Nigerians.
“We hope that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will unveil the hospital’s new logo when he visits before May 29 swearing-in of elected leaders in the country. “This is a big achievement in the “next level” mantra of the present administration and it is hoped that the renaming will make the hospital attain greater heights,” he told newsmen.
