OGHA URGES LGs TO COMPLEMENT GOV. ABIODUN’S EFFORTS IN REHABILITATING MORE RURAL HEALTH FACILITIES

Ogun State House of Assembly has called on the Local Government Councils in the State to complement the State Government by embarking on the rehabiltation and upgrade of more primary health facilities at the grassroot level.

The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Oludaisi Elemide, threw the challenge today while responding to the submission of a member representing Yewa North II State Constituency, Hon. Wahab Haruna during a plenary conducted in Yoruba Language at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Elemide noted that there was need for the councils to contribute to the health needs of the rural people, recalling that the present administration in the State had earlier embarked on massive rehabilitation, reconstruction and upgrade of some health facilities across the State.

He noted that more needed to be done by Government to ensure that most of the Primary Health Care Centres were renovated and equipped, especially for the benefit of the rural dwellers.

Earlier in his presentation, Hon. Haruna had sought for the State Government’s intervention in ensuring the renovation and upgrade of health facilities in his constituency to cater for the needs of the residents including Ijoun, Eegua, Igbokofin, Ebute-Igbooro and Ihunbo.

He noted that the recent outbreak of water borne diseases had made it expedient for them to have access to quality healthcare facilities.
