Oba LCDA In Ogun Deworms Residents

Published

Oba Local Council Development Area (LCDA), in Abeokuta, Ogun, has carried out the second phase of its deworming programme to prevent worm infestation and reduce anaemia in residents in the council area.

The Chairman of the LCDA, Mr Asaluola Quadri, made this known to newsmen on Wednesday, while mentioning the achievements of his administration.

He said that his administration would not relent in providing affordable and qualitative healthcare to the citizens.

According to him, some of the healthcare delivery system include: immunisation, family planning, ante-natal, among others, to ensure that people in the area are in good health.

Quadri noted that availability of drugs in all the health facilities had motivated members of the communities to patronise healthcare centres in the LCDA.

According to him, this has helped in saving the people the trouble of going long distance for medical treatments.

The LCDA chairman noted that the council carried out routine house-to-house inspection to ensure residents’ compliance with public health and environmental laws.

He said this was possible through the council’s Water Supply and Environment Sanitation Departments.

Quadri said that people in areas with illegal dump sites were sensitised on proper waste disposal.

“We have constantly done routine house-to-house inspection to sensitise our people on issues of public health, environmental laws and proper channellisation of our wastes,’’ he said.

The LCDA boss also said that the ongoing construction of 10 lock-up shops and open stalls, at Opako and Adigbe were at roofing stages, saying that grading of roads at Oba and Egbeda Wards had been completed.
