Medical Oxygen Plant Project At COOU To Be Completed This Month

A Medical Oxygen Gas Production Plant under construction at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku Awka, will be handed over to the State government this month.

The Contractor handling the project, Mr Charles Mola disclosed this when the State Deputy Governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke visited the project site to ascertain the progress of work.

The Oxygen gas Plant, initiated and being financed by the Obiano administration, is the biggest in the Country, and has the daily oxygen production capacity of two hundred and eight cylinders that can last for a minimum of one week.

On arrival at the site, it was observed that the project is almost ninety-five percent complete, remaining few finishing touches, while the equipment are yet to be put in place.

Speaking on the level of work, at the project site, the Deputy Governor Dr Okeke expressed satisfaction with the quality of the structure, but wondered why the project is being delayed, as the equipment are yet to arrive.

Dr Okeke stressed that going by the promise of the contractor handling the project, that it will be commissioned by the middle of this month, the project, when completed, will be highly beneficial to government and the citizenry.

Earlier, the Contractor handling the project Mr Charles Mola said that a number of technicalities, which, include the fluctuation of forex exchange, is hampering the execution of the project, adding that everything has been rectified and packaged for delivery.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Josephat Akabuike, the Chief Medical Director of the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital Amaku, Awka, Dr. Basil Nwankwo, were present during the visit.

It would be recalled that Governor Willie Obiano had in August 2016, laid the foundation stone of the facility.
