The NPP New York Chapter communications official said his intention is for the CHPS compound to be upgraded to a health center and subsequently, a polyclinic.
Meanwhile, residents who were enthused with this kind gesture, thanked Mr. Nasir and pledge to support him in all his ambitions.
This support is coupled with the supply of plastic chairs, hand gloves and some other consumables donated to the health facility by the party's functionary.
