Red Cross Society of Nigeria, Anambra state council has commended the state Governor, Chief Willie Obiano on his consolidated efforts to wipe-out insecurity in the light of the nation, describing it as a welcome development that guarantees safety of lives and properties of the citizenry.

This contained in an address read by Hon. Justice P.A.C Obidigwe, the Anambra State Chairman of Nigeria Red Cross Society during the “2014 World Red Cross Day” celebrated yesterday at the state's NRCS headquarters in Awka, the state capital.

It would be recalled that 8th May each year is celebrated all over the globe as the World Red Cross Day, in commemoration of its founder's birthday, Jean Henry Dunant, a-Swiss Citizen born May 8, 1828 in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to the former Chief Judge of Anambra State, Governor Obiano has evolved virile, erudite and articulate strategies to change fortunes of the people of the state in order to achieve the much desired Millennuim Development Goals (MDGs) which is central to world economic and social order.

However, he advised the governor to appropriately consider the state public hospitals and health centers with a view to improve governance financing, infrastructural installations, appurtenances, staffing and management, as rapid response to health situations and disaster emergency situations of any sort need to be expanded and enhanced with available human and material resources.

He said Anambrarians and the world at large will be happier if Governor Obiano's political dispensation actualizes at least three out of MDGs 8 goals of reducing child mortality by two-thirds, reducing maternal deaths by three quarters reduction of spreading of HIV/AIDS in Anambra state to a halt.
