The Governor blamed the rise in renal, liver, and cancer concerns among the public on the use of substandard, counterfeit, and expired medications.
He was disappointed that the state’s health officials were doing little to stop the dreadful trend.

According to him, in the next weeks, there will be peace for peace, difficulty for trouble, and I will reposition the Ebonyi state health system, as well as health institutions and educational institutions.

“If you go to the neighborhoods, you’ll find people selling outdated drugs, poor pharmaceuticals, and phony drugs, and we’ve recently seen a rise in renal difficulties, liver problems, and cancer concerns.

“We weren’t used to this since we eat fresh foods; we shouldn’t have this; and is this king of pharmaceuticals causing it, and I’m wondering what our health-care system is doing.

“You see individuals selling kai kai (local dry gin) mixed with roots, and no one is saying anything. They even offer it using a microphone. Big guys used to have these diseases, but now they don’t; it’s just the poor masses who become sick.

“We must pay close attention to our healthcare and educational systems; it will be peace for peace, problem for trouble in the coming weeks, and I will reposition the Ebonyi state health system, as well as health institutions and educational institutions. Umahi stated, “This is a requirement.”
