The Foundation for Energy Health International College of Science and Technology, Mgbowo near Enugu, says it will build the first Alternative Medicine and Energy Health Teaching Hospital in Africa.

The Provost of the institution, Prof. Okoro Akpa, said at the first convocation of the institution on Wednesday that the specialised teaching hospital would be sited in Enugu State.

Akpa appealed to the Federal and State Governments as well as international health agencies and donors to assist in establishing the hospital.

“Our target objective is to upgrade this institution to a Specialist University Teaching Hospital in Alternative and Energy Health Science and Technology.

“In Nigeria, we look at buildings but in India where Alternative and Energy Health Science and Technology has taken deep root, they do not look at buildings, they look at what is inside the building.

“I am asking the government to assist us in any way possible so that within the next four or five months, it is going to take off,’’ he said.

On the successes recorded by the institution, the provost said it had popularised alternative medicine care and its general acceptability as a means of medical cure and consultation.

“Our people are more interested now; they have heard from me, seen and felt those already cured through alternative medicine and energy health care methods.

“I have vowed that we are going to stamp out all the diseases in Nigeria through these methods of cure,’’ he said.

The Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Masa’udu Kazaure, who was represented by Mr Godwin Bako, commended the level of scholarship at the institution.

Kazaure said that it was pleasing that the NBTE board granted approval and a licence of operation to the institution.

“I appreciate the efforts of Prof. Akpa; he  has been able to see that this institution is approved and the licence granted.

“I solicit that government should help the institution to get a better location; when I look at the environment, the institution needs more land, which is supposed to be bigger than this, for its expansion plans.

“The government and the Ministry of Health should come in; Alternative Medicine is very important and we encourage the government to come and support it,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 61 students took part in the convocation ceremony.
