Odo-oba-Ogbomoso needs General Hospital


Adelani Olawuyi

SIR: In 1980, the government of the late Cicero, Uncle Bola Ige started the construction of a General Hospital in Odo-oba, Ogo-Oluwa Local Government Area of Oyo State. It didn’t go beyond foundation till 2010 when the government of Otunba Adebayo Alao -Akala converted it to a Primary Health Centre (PHC).

Forty years after its foundation was laid, the proposed hospital still remains a Primary Health Centre. It is bad!

Odooba community population is surging by day. It is the most densely populated in Ogo-Oluwa LGA. It is the seat of Ogo-Oluwa West Local Council Development Area. Its market is about the largest farm produce market in Nigeria. The market is patronized on daily basis by people from all the states in the federation including Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and the neighboring countries of Togo, Benin, Cameroon, Niger, and Chad etc.

Unarguably it is the rendezvous for people from Oriire, Ogbomoso South/North and Atiba Local Government Areas. By World Health organization’s (WHO) standards, we believe that the town is qualified for a General Hospital with resident doctors and other medical staff.

Therefore, we implore the dynamic administration of Engineer Oluseyi Abiodun Makinde to construct and equip a general hospital for us as part of our own dividends of democracy.
