The CRS Commissioner for Health, Dr Betta Edu, thanked and commended the Registrar/Secretary General of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, Alh. Farouk Umar, and his team on behalf of the State Governor, Sen. Prof. Ben Ayade, for their visionary and tireless efforts in bringing more innovations to the Nursing profession in Nigeria. “Let me also take this opportunity to praise and applaud you for your tenacious and tireless character, which has resulted in enormous improvements and innovation in the Nursing Council, which has greatly aided the development of Nigeria’s health sector.

“It is wonderful that you have been able to increase and maintain standards without engaging in political maneuvering with regard to nursing school accreditation. We must do everything necessary to enhance the Councils in order to create more of all cadres of health professionals for a country that desires to attain Universal Health Coverage with a small health workforce. As a state, we admire and appreciate your support, which has resulted in full accreditation for all of our nursing schools, as well as increased student enrollment. The first College of Nursing Sciences in South South Nigeria is poised to open in Cross River, which will be a huge step forward for us as a state. Finally, your decision to establish a Zonal Office in Cross River has made us the envy of the entire country. As a result, we appreciate you and your entire team for this tremendous honor, and we assure you that the goal for which this Office was established will be realized.

During his response, the Registrar/Secretary General congratulated Sen. Prof Ben Ayade’s government for achieving great accomplishments for the State, particularly in the health sector, through his Health Commissioner Dr Betta Edu. “On behalf of my team, I’d want to express our gratitude to the Health Commissioner for the kind welcome we’ve received thus far. I owe the Governor and his Health Commissioner every success since it is because of their hard work and perseverance that the State has accomplished so much. We were here a few months ago for the certification process, and her hard work and dedication earned Cross River Schools full certification. This time, we’re back to commission the State’s Zonal Office. I’ve never seen a woman so dedicated and engaged, and I keep wishing she was from my state because the state has accomplished so much in the health sector during her term.

“While I charge the State to use the Office wisely, I also want to assure the CRSMOH of our continued support/synergy, thanking everyone, particularly the CRS government and his Health Commissioner, her entire team, and the CRS and Akwa Ibom State NANNM, our Nursing student, for being so pragmatic, committed, and dedicated to making this process a reality. For every other dignitary in attendance, we salute you and thank you for your contribution to this success. I am incredibly proud of this state and its leaders.”

The Director of Nursing Services, Dr. Pauline Obute, thanked His Excellency Sen. Prof Ben Ayade, Commissioner and her team, the Registrar and Secretary General Alh. Farouk Umar, CRS will forever be indebted to you and your entire team for all your tremendous efforts and support, as we reassure you that this Zonal Office will be used to bring Nursing services closer to the people. Traveling to Zonal Offices in distant states is no longer a source of concern.”
