The State Chapter of Forum of Local Government Nurses (FOLGON) paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Martin Akpan, Chairman of the Akwa Ibom State Primary Healthcare Development Agency.
The Chairman of the Forum, Mrs. Sarah Bata, commended the Chairman on his efforts to revitalize Primary healthcare centers. She stated that the Forum’s visit aimed to inform the Agency of its existence having been formally constituted on the 19th of August 2020.
Dr. Martin Akpan expressed his appreciation of the vital role of nurses in the various healthcare facilities which he noted has enabled the state government to provide the necessary healthcare services to the citizens. He remarked that without the sacrificial effort of nurses at these facilities, it would have been difficult for the government to achieve its success at the present level.

While pledging the resolve of nurses to sincerely serve the citizens, Mrs. Sarah Bata enjoined the Agency to assist the Forum in other forms of capacity building for the development of nurses.
