Greater Accra Region children benefit
OpenLife Nigeria reports that over 712 Oblieman children have been captured and given free NHIS cards
Information available stated that this is part of the mission of Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka I, to prioritize health for his people.
To that effect, the Chief of Oblieman in the Ga West Municipality in the Greater Accra Region has registered a number of children into the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
Out of the 712 children, 300 kids renewed their cards whilst the rest of the 412 were newly registered.
With this, about 5% of the children in and around Oblieman have been captured and given free NHIS cards.
The exercise which is an annual event forms part of his activities to mark this year’s annual Homowo festival.
Speaking briefly to newsmen at his palace at Oblieman in the Ga West Municipality, Nii Oyanka I, explained that the health of his people is very important for him hence the exercise.
It also formed part of various developmental activities that the residents would be benefiting from.
“Leadership is not about your age and how fast you can sell lands, but it is how you can make your people look healthy and bring policies and programs that will benefit the future leaders”, he added.
Notwithstanding the various challenges facing the entire nation, Nii Oyanka is striving hard to prioritise education in his catchment areas.
This according to him, would make education compulsory to all children under his jurisdiction.
Some parents who expressed joy after taking their children through a successful registration prayed for the long life of the king.
For them, the King has been very supportive to the people and asked God to bless him and give him throughout his ruling.
