  The newly elected chairman of the society, MrJosephat Obasi, who led the delegation, in his speech, thanked the HOS for the reception as he offered a listening ear to the society’s prayers.

  He noted the recent promotion of their members in the civil service and the appointment of one of them, Mr Victor Nwizu to the position of Director, Pharmacy, Hospital Management Board.

  Mr Obasi noted improvements on the welfare of their members in the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital (COOUTH) as some major stride by the HOS to the society.

  He pointed out the approval and creation of pharmacist’s consultancy cadre for pharmacists by the federal government and prayed that same office be created in the Anambra Civil Service.

  Mr Obasi pleaded that Anambra Government should look into the anomaly that stalled pharmacists in grade level 15 without any further advancement.

  Obasi noted that this issue had remained a discouragement to pharmacists in seeking jobs in government, adding that whereas other professionals advance up to the highest cadre; pharmacists were stalled in GL15.

  Responding, the HOS, Harry Udu assured the group that the government was not relenting in ensuring that everyone was accommodated equally.
