As part of efforts to ensure healthy living, Oba Local Council Development Area (LCDA) has carried out its second phase of de-worming programme to prevent worm infestation and reduce anaemia in the Council Area.
The Council’s Chairman, Hon. Asaluola Quadri, who revealed this in the Council’s report, made available to journalists, said his administration would not relent in providing affordable and qualitative healthcare such as; immunization, 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 has motivated members of the communities to patronize healthcare centers in the LCDA, saying this has helped in saving the people the trouble of going long distance for medical treatments.
The Chairman disclosed that the council through its Water Supply and Environment Sanitation Departments, carried out routine house to house inspection, to ensure residents’ compliance to public health and environmental laws, adding that people in areas with illegal dump site, were sensitized on proper waste disposal.
He added that the ongoing construction of 10 lockup shops and open stalls at Opako, Adigbe, Abeokuta, were at roofing stages, while grading of roads at Oba and Egbeda Wards have been completed.
