North Tongu is honoured to have hosted the Volta Regional edition of this year’s World Contraception Day in Battor later this week.
Honorable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa surprised the longest serving midwife, Madam Beatrice Blessing Obidieh, with a modest gift of a 2015 Toyota Prius, a fully loaded hybrid model.
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 was 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 of nurses and midwifes.
According to honorable Ablakwah during the presentation, he hope her sterling example and their token of appreciation will motivate other health workers posted to the district from elsewhere as in the case of Auntie Beatrice ,to accept their postings, stay with North Tongu and not be fixated on seeking transfers to bigger cities.
He added that God bless Madam Beatrice Blessing Obidieh and all the outstanding health care workers.
