She joined eHealth Africa over five years ago as the Administrative Coordinator of the Sokoto State Polio Emergency Operations Center (PEOC), where she provided administrative support to the EOC team and partners. In no time, she rose to become the State Manager of the PEOC where she managed the daily operations of the EOC including staff, fleet, and other assets.

Currently, she supervises the administrative and operational activities of the procurement, warehouse and logistics team. She is in charge of managing vendors according to master service agreements and ensuring that the procurement and supply chain team meets delivery deadlines.

Recently, Ori worked with the team responsible for the renovation of three zonal offices of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) in Bauchi, Kano and Niger states. Ori is most proud of the role that she and her team played in the containment of the Ebola Virus disease outbreak in Lagos State in 2015. Some of her other achievements include managing the initial setup of the Sokoto Meningitis Lab by ensuring that all logistics, travel, and procurement needs were met.

Ori credits eHA with giving her and other staff opportunities to discover and showcase competencies which they may never have discovered otherwise. In recognition of her dedication and service towards the eradication of Polio in Sokoto State, she and nineteen other recipients in Nigeria were presented with the Rotary International Meritorious Award for Polio Service in 2018.

In the course of meeting my work objectives, discover skills and competencies that I didn’t know I possessed. These have enabled me to overcome several challenges and offered opportunities that I ordinarily would not think I can handle. Even though my role is mostly operational, I support core project delivery in so many ways and I know that I am giving back to the society
