The Member of Parliament for North Tongu in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has given a car to a dedicated midwife in his constituency.
The MP made the gesture on Friday during the commemoration of this year’s World Contraception Day in Battor.
.”I decided to surprise our longest serving midwife, Madam Beatrice Blessing Obidieh with a modest gift of a 2015 Toyota Prius fully loaded hybrid model,” Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa explained on his Facebook page.
“Auntie Beatrice as she’s affectionately known has rendered inspirational service at the Battor Catholic Hospital since 2003. The 53 year old product of Atibie Midwifery Training School came highly recommended by all her colleagues, doctors and administrative staff who were unanimous during my quiet background checks that she has been phenomenal, dedicated, selfless and a quintessential role model to the younger generation,” the North Tongu MP said.
“I hope her sterling example and our token of appreciation will motivate other health workers posted to our district from elsewhere as in the case of Auntie Beatrice to accept their postings, stay with us and not be fixated on seeking transfers to bigger cities”
“God bless Madam Beatrice Blessing Obidieh and all outstanding health care workers.
You inspire us. the MP said.
