The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has rewarded a midwife at the Battor Catholic Hospital with a new car following her perseverance and hard work.
Beatrice Blessing Obidieh, 53, being the longest serving midwife at the hospital was handed a 2015 Toyota Prius hybrid model.
He made the presentation during Volta Region’s edition of the 2021 celebration of the World Contraception Day held at Battor on Friday, September 24.
According to Samuel Okudzeto in a Facebook post, his gesture comes as a recognition of the latter’s selfless and dedicated service in the constituency.
“Auntie Beatrice as she’s affectionately known has rendered inspirational service at the Battor Catholic Hospital since 2003. The 53 year old product of Atibie Midwifery Training School came highly recommended by all her colleagues, doctors and administrative staff who were unanimous during my quiet background checks that she has been phenomenal, dedicated, selfless and a quintessential role model to the younger generation” he wrote.
The Lawmaker thereafter said he believes other young and upcoming health workers in the District will emulate Auntie Obidieh and use her story as a motivation in their line of duty
“I hope her sterling example and our token of appreciation will motivate other health workers posted to our district from elsewhere as in the case of Auntie Beatrice to accept their postings, stay with us and not be fixated on seeking transfers to bigger cities” the MP observed.
