Benue State Commissioner of Health and Human Services, Dr. Cecilia Ojabo, has disclosed that the College of Health Technology, Agasha was ready for reaccreditation.

She spoke after inspecting facilities at the school.

Dr. Ojabo stated that the criteria for accreditation which the institution lost three years ago included the provision of a perimeter fence to secure the premises and its inhabitants, computers and furniture for enhanced learning, recruitment of more professional staff, water supply as well as hostels for male and female students.

The commissioner said most of the requirements have been met while Governor Samuel Ortom who has demonstrated commitment for the reaccreditation has approved the release of funds for the provision of furniture and completion of the hostels.

Dr. Ojabo disclosed that the State Ministry of Health during her tenure also approved the admission of students for environmental and laboratory courses who are currently undergoing training as part of the criteria for the reaccreditation.

She stated that the school was central to the health care delivery program of the administration as its graduates were needed to provide services for the numerous Primary Care Centers across the state.

At the Schools of Nursing and Midwifery in Makurdi, Dr. Ojabo expressed happiness that the commitment of Governor Ortom to the revamping of the institutions was yielding positive results as the two institutions had commenced academic activities following their reconstruction and reaccreditation.

She noted that with the development the administration was not only impacting on the present but also future generations as well as reaching out to the global community as products of the schools would contribute greatly to health care delivery within and outside the state.
