“I have been going all over the country to put smiles on the faces of people and invest in them and give them hope because the people we fail to train today will be a problem to us in the future.

“We must invest in our young people. See the number of people you have as students here, and you are training them to become useful. If you don’t train them, the will be one a problem to the society tomorrow.”

He also thanked the college for its dedication in churning out qualified nurses and midwives.

“I remind you, my dear nursing students, that nursing is a noble profession in which you will find fulfillment by serving society. I wish you well and urge you to continue to work hard as nurses as we unite our efforts in building a New Nigeria.

“Through many decades of producing qualified nurses and midwives, the College of Nursing Sciences, Adazi-Nnukwu, has contributed immeasurably to the growth of our health sector and the development of our human infrastructure.

“By your labours and sacrifices, you have continued to produce well-trained nurses who make positive impacts both within the nation and in the international health sector,” Obi said.
