The Registrar, Environmental Health Officers Registration Council of Nigeria, Dr. Dominic Abonyi has charged members of the Grassroots Environmental Healthcare Initiative (GEHI) to prove their worth while on the field, saying that was the best instrument for recognition.
Abonyi said the Council was willing to encourage initiatives that promote any aspect of environmental health such as the ones in the aims and objectives of GEHI.
The Registrar made these assertions when the Grassroots Environmental Healthcare Initiatives, a foremost NGO, led by its Chairman, Board of Trustees, Brigadier General Soyemi Sofoluwe (Rtd.) paid the Council a courtesy visit in Abuja recently.
The Registrar, however, advised the leadership of the Grassroots Environmental Health Initiatives (GEHI) to look inward by engaging the Environmental Health Officers who were already at the grassroots, adding that technical and logistics support would be given when necessary and available.
Earlier in his remarks, the Chairman, Board of Trustees Grassroot Environmental Healthcare Initiatives (GEHI), Brigadier Gen. Sofoluwe said they were in the Council to solicit for technical support for the awareness creation.
He stated that, the GEHI’s vision was to tame the environment and make it sustainable, thereby making it friendly for improved health and economy.
Present at the events were various heads of departments of Environmental Health Officers Registration Council of Nigeria (EHORECON).
