The Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu , has laid the foundation stone of the ultra modern Clinic at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Permanent Orientation Camp, Ikare-Akoko, in the state.
Akeredolu disclosed that his administration will continue to create conducive atmosphere and enabling environment for NYSC Scheme to excel in the State.
Represented by the Head of Service, Barrister Toyin Akinkuotu, the governor said ,that his government is committed to providing basic amenities and infrastructures to the people and residents of the Sunshine State.
According to him, “Because of this, the initiative by the NYSC to have a modern Clinic has already received the blessings of the State Executive Council’.
The governor said ,”The enabling Act establishing the NYSC has given legal backing to the Scheme to mobilise and organise orientation course for corps members under acceptable living conditions and with the outstanding milestone we are witnessing today, ‘all hands must be on deck to ensure that the project is completed within record time”.
His words: “Distinguished guests, it is an incontrovertible fact that our Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu will not start what will later become an abandoned project. Statistics has shown that this government is responsible and responsive to the yearnings of the people and will do whatever is within the legal framework to give a helping hand and support a worthy cause such as this”.
He ,however, promised to mobilise support for the project by ensuring that topmost career officers and some members of the political class will be encouraged to give ‘their widow’s mite to make the orientation camp a home away from home for the members of the service corps’.
He equally thanked the State Coordinator for bringing him back ‘home’ to Ikare after about thirty nine years when he left the ancient town to pursue higher education.
Earlier, the State Coordinator, Mrs. Grace Akpabio, said the idea to have a befitting and world class clinic was conceived by a serving corps doctor, Oluwagbemga Ijirotimi and the dream received instant support by the Medical and Health Community Development Service group of Akoko North East Local Government.
Akpabio said that it was indeed a special honour to be part of the construction of the ultra modern Camp Clinic and implored political office holders, philanthropists, business moguls, community leaders, various professionals and religious bodies to support the project with cash donations and materials to ensure that it is completed for use within the next one year.
She said, “It is pertinent to point out at this juncture that the project, when fully completed will bring glory to Ondo State as Nigerian youths posted to the Sunshine State will go back to their various states with the good story of having been in a camp with the best Clinic in Nigeria.”
