NPHCDA abandons community hospital renovation after N24.2 million budget

The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has abandoned the renovation of Oke Ogi community hospital after the federal government set aside N24.2 million for the project.

The federal government had in the year 2021, set aside the sum of N24.2 million under the NPHCA budget allocation for the community hospital.

In the project, NPHCDA is to use the money to renovate and equip Iree community healthcare centre located at Oke Ogi ward 10 in Boripe Local Government Area of Osun state.

Despite the budget allocation, Tracka officials who were at the community to inspect the project, say the project has been abandoned while the community hospital continues to be in a deplorable condition.

This is even as a huge number of persons depend on the hospital to access healthcare.

Over the years, Nigeria has continued to suffer a collapse in the health sector with the rural residents and the poor who cannot afford private healthcare being the worst hit.

Across the Nigerian state, there are many deplorable collapsed hospitals in communities, making rural dwellers lack access to healthcare.

A situation that is leading to many deaths with maternal and infant mortality leading in the ranking.

MAWA Foundation could not immediately reach out to NPHCDA for an official response.
