NAUTH holds 2022 solemn assembly
The Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) Nnewi Anambra State has held her 2022 edition of Solemn Assembly at the permanent site of the hospital with the theme: ‘A new beginning’.

The chairman of the occasion, Prof Robinson Ofieli in his opening remarks noted that the glory of the hospital started many years ago when he brought a former Minister of Health to flag off a project even when the permanent site was like a wilderness.

Prof Ofieli said that he was happy that the new Chief Medical Director (CMD) of NAUTH, Prof Joseph Ugboaja is a progressive minded person who has already began the process of taking the hospital to a greater heights.

The Chief Medical Director CMD of NAUTH, Prof Joseph Ugboaja in his speech noted that Solemn Assembly is an annual event that is designed to mark the beginning of the year for the hospital community.

He said that it is an occasion set aside to thank God for his numerous blessings in the previous year and ask for his abiding presence in the new year.

“The Solemn Assembly means a lot to us as a family and as a people. It is an occasion in which we affirm and reaffirm that God is the author and finisher of our faith. That he is the tree and we are the branches, and cut off from him, we can do nothing.

“And because we want to do great things, we cannot afford to be cut off. At Solemn Assembly, we hand over the hospital, the staff and patients over to God to direct, guide, bless and prosper.” He pointed out.
