The Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in Umuahia is set to partner with the Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV) Abia State in the fight against cultism and other vices.

The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the institution – Prof. Azubuike Onyebuchi – made this known when a delegation from POCACOV Abia, led by the Chairman – Adanma Odefa Wachuku – paid him a courtesy and advocacy visit on Tuesday.

Speaking during the visit, the CMD noted that POCACOV would work effectively if it adopts a multi-stakeholder approach involving the church, traditional rulers, as well as the youth wings of various communities in the state. 

Prof. Onyebuchi disclosed that the psychiatry section of the FMC, Umuahia, as well as other relevant departments in the public health centre are ready to partner with POCACOV to fight cultism and other vices in the state.

Earlier, Odefa Wachuku described the organization as one whose relevance cannot be overemphasized in the forthcoming general election owing to the need to dissuade the youth from being used as destructive elements by politicians. 

She thanked the CMD for his support and for accepting to become a member and stakeholder of POCACOV Abia State.
