Residents of Ipokia community in Ipokia local government area of Ogun state, southwest, Nigeria have called on the governor of the state, Ibikunle Amosun to as a matter of urgency equip their hospitals with protective gadgets and consumables against the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) due to their closeness to the neighboring Republic of
Benin.

The appeal was made Tuesday by the Chairman of the local government, Hon. Isiaka Aderounmu during the governor’s assessment and monitoring tour of the local government.

The LG boss stated that their request should be urgently attended to under, what he called, “matter of urgency”, for the provision of necessary medical materials for the people, because they are vulnerable.

“We urgently need the state government’s quick and decisive intervention in respect of Ebola Virus Disease in view of our peculiar proximity to neighbouring Benin Republic which makes our people quite vulnerable to the killer disease which has no cure yet,” Aderounmu appealed.

Speaking at the event, a former Council Chairman in the area, Engr. Fatiu Omikunle acknowledged that two among the three General Hospitals in the council area have been renovated and equipped by the Ibikunle Amosun led administration, as well as more than half of 89 primary schools. He however he noted that the people still deserve more dividends of democracy.

He pointed out that if the Tongeji Island in the council area is developed, besides generating revenue to the state government, it would create jobs for the unemployed.

Omikunle, an engineer, disclosed that Ipokia has the fifth highest vote cast in the 2011 general elections in the state.
