Service, Dr. Kingsley Pascal, He expressed worry about the condition that there

‘’Due to the nature of the
district, the topography and also network problems and that of the commensurate
impoverished nature of the area, they find it hard to charm medical personnel’s.

usually come to see the area but will not return again.
