The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker representing Ibadan North East constituency II at the Oyo state house of assembly Hon Olushola Owolabi in partnership with a Singapore based none governmental organisation (NGO) named Ishk Tolaram Foundation has donated another sets of birthing kits and mosquito nets to another selected community healthcare maternity centre in his constituency as part of his routine community services aimed at providing more primary healthcare facilities available to members of his immediate constituency in order to reduce maternal mortality rate and improve healthcare delivery in the state.
Hon Owolabi while addressing Sunrise Bulletin correspondent today shortly after presentation of the medical kits to the community healthcare maternity centre, stated that his desire to continually engage in such community services as a legislator is born out of his passion to increase access to quality healthcare and to close the gap between the haves and the haves not noting that the donation is a personal gesture not part of his constituency project as he already has a massive plan ahead for the betterment of members of his constituency.
Recall that this is not the first time the lawmaker would be engaged in such routine community services, he said lawmakers of the 9th assembly are yet to receive constituency allowances adding that as soon as lawmakers get funds to execute constituency projects his poverty alleviation plans will be unveiled.
The most senior staff around at the healthcare centre Mrs. Awoleye Oluwatoyin thanked the lawmaker for what she described as unprecedented at the maternity centre adding that no one expected such gesture at the moment as people are still expecting stability for the present administration. She stated further that the donations will go a long way in improving healthcare services at the medical facility and prayed that other lawmakers will emulate hon Olushola Owolabi to engage in routine community services that will keep them in touch with people at the grassroots.
Hon. Owolable assured of continuous support to the grassroots and to attract physical development to his constituency anytime the state govt begins to roll out its plans on capital projects, admonishing the people to shun violence and be responsible members of the society so that the plans of governor Seyi Makinde to restore the pacesetter pride can be achieved.
