Ekwerike has restated his determination to synergize with his American Medical Experts friends to establish good medical facilities, research centers, medical / health care programs and grants for Imolites.
He further revealed that. ” if we can assure them of security and enabling environment. I am very sure Imolites can guarantee this because we are on zero status now and every life matters”
