The success of every given State doesn’t just rest on the shoulder of the male folks, but also on the special and dynamic support of the women irrespective of their position in government.
There is no doubt that Cross River State has been privileged to have a woman, who has silenced some critics with her achievements under the administration of Governor Ben Ayade since being appointed as the Commissioner for health in 2015.
No doubt, the state’s healthcare service has worked wonders in all Local Government Areas of Cross River State; reaching out to the needy and less privileged that could hardly afford hospital bills.
The Cross River State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Inyang Asibong, has completely turned around the once decayed health structure in the state through the help of Gov. Ayade.
The soft-spoken commissioner, who has piloted some of the newly constructed and renovated health facilities in the state and more, will fondly be respected for her proactiveness in curbing the Lassa Fever challenge in Cross River State.
Interestingly, Dr Asibong’s efforts has been greatly complemented thanks to the tireles work of Director General of Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Betta Edu, who also has helped in reducing the enorous workload on Dr Asibong’s desk.
As a matter of fact, Dr Asibong has truly reflected the trust bestowed upon her by Gov Ayade’s administration despite being one of the few women that has anchored such huge responsibility.
Rather than allow such a Herculean task to weigh her down, she has successfully transformed the state health sector positively, by providing a comprehensive quality healthcare service in some of the remote Communities in Cross River State.
Till date, the people of Cross River State can testify to the good deeds of Dr Asibong’s willingness and zeal to drive the positive image of the state’s healthcare sector to greater height.
Perhaps, if three years of meticulous services has reshaped the health sector in Cross River State, then there a need to do more and not rest on her oars in order to achieve a Cross River State Health Sector of our dreams
