According to the Chief Medical Director, Nigerians seek for medical assistance from outside the country due to lack of commitment on the part of government.

He commended Augusta Emelugo for her legacy adding that it will not be forgotten even in generations to come.


While reviewing the book, a cardiologist consultant, UNTH, Enugu, Professor B.J.C Onwubere said there are limited numbers of experts in the area of critical care in Nigeria but stressed the need for them to be adequately trained.

The bishop of Nike diocese Enugu, Rt. Revd Evans Ibeagha who presented the book commended Emelugo for her great work and said the book will go a long way to impact lives.


In his remarks, the Archbishop, Methodist Arch Diocese of Aba, Joseph Nnona said Nigeria has enough resources to make life meaningful as well as provide health care for the citizenry and urged government at all levels to harness it for the benefit of all.

The author of the book, Critical Care Management, Augusta Emelugo said her motivation to write the book was drawn from her 22 years of experience adding that Nigeria lagged behind in the aspect of critical care.



While appreciating her husband, friends and well wishers for their encouragement and support, Emelugo called on government to provide sophisticated equipment in the medical sector so as to discourage people from seeking medical attention outside the country.

The husband of the author Sam Emelugo commended her for finding it relevant to enlighten people through her work.

the event which was used to commemorate world heart day, also featured interactive session, questions and answers among others.
