The call by the Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on public-spirited individuals to partner the State Government at developing the state across all sectors has again yielded positive results.
Latest of such kindheartedness was the donation of a block of five rooms and borehole to the Primary Health Centre at Iloro Community in Owo by Pastor Olugbenga Olumolawa.
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, at the event, enjoined well meaning individuals in the state to endeavour to compliment government efforts by coming up with projects that would be of great benefit to the people.
The Governor who lauded the kind gesture of the donor aimed at addressing the health needs of people in the area, noted that such projects were capable of transforming lives and society.
The Governor charged prominent sons and daughters of the area to rise up to the challenge of contributing their quota to the development of their community, saying government would not be able to touch every where at the same time.
“He has done his own and we can not forget it. Others should emulate him so that in no distant future, our communities will experience rapid development”, he said.
The donor, Pastor Olugbenga Olumolawa said the gesture was borne out of his passion to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged who may not have access to such facilities due to financial constraints.
Pastor Olumolawa who noted that no project was too small, appealed to the well to do, to always assist government at putting up development projects in their areas.
Earlier, the Chief Nursing Officer of Iloro Basic Health Center, Mrs Racheal Adelegan who described the donor as an embodiment of great virtues, commended him for giving back to the society.
Mrs Adelegan who said the projects will scale up health care delivery in Iloro and Owo at large, assured that the building and other facilities donated to the Health Centre would be utilized and maintained perfectly.
