Residents of Ogijo Community in Sagamu Local government area of Ogun State have appealed to the government to compel a Multinational Oil Company handling the construction of a healthcare centre in the Area, to urgently complete the project.
The member representing Sagamu-one State Constituency in the Ogun State House of Assembly, Chief Adeyinka Mafe made appeal during a plenary.
Chief Mafe explained that the Oil Company had three years ago demolished the existing healthcare centre in the community and raised the hope of the people to construct a better one immediately, but till now the project was yet to be completed.
The lawmaker lamented that the company’s delay in completion of the project had denied the people in the Area access to quality healthcare services and has forced to be patronise private hospitals who charge exorbitantly.
Also, the lawmaker representing Ijebu-Ode State constituency, Mr. Olawale Alausa urged the government to complete the Model Secondary School under construction in the Area for prompt use of students in the area.
Mr. Olawale expressed concern over the inability of the government to complete the School project which commenced some years ago by the present Administration in the State.
In a remark, the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Prince Suraj Adekunbi said the House would take necessary steps towards ensuring the completion of the projects.
