Hon. Secretary Commissions FCT LMCU Permanent Office
The FCT LMCU has been relocated to Abuja Central Medical Stores. This was necessitated owing to inadequacies such as lack of adequate office space, power and basic amenities that plagued the former temporary office. All workstations at the new office have been set up and formal activities have resumed fully. This event took place on Thursday, 3rd August, 2017 at the FCT Central Medical Stores in Jabi, Abuja.
The Ag. Honourable Secretary of health in the FCT was on ground to commission the new Secretariat office of the LMCU and handed over the keys to the Director of Pharmaceutical Services, Pharm. Mrs. Hauwa Ibrahim. Also in attendance at the ceremony was the National Coordinator of the NSCIP, Pharm Linus Odoemene and the Project Manager, Pharm. Mrs Kassim Talatu amongst other top NSCIP representatives from the PMO.
Good will messages were from GM (HMB), DPHB, DPRS, IHVN, GHSC-PSM, ARFH, UNFPA, FHI, Axios Foundation and HODs health. Well wishers were then treated to a tour of the complex by the LMCU Coordinator, Pharm. Abdullahi Abdurrahman.
The FCT LMCU plans to build on this milestone further by carrying out advocacy visits for the setup of the LGA LMCU (LLMCU) in each of the area councils of the FCT.
