Keeping with their resolutions to always give back to the community, the Oluomo and Yeye Oluomo of Egboro kingdom, Chief and Chief (Mrs) Olusola and Ariyike Alabi have completed the renovation of the water systems at the Ijebu-Jesa General Hospital.
With the completion of the project, every ward and offices in the state owned hospital now has functional water system. The water challenges hitherto faced by the staff and patients of the hospital is now a thing of the past.
While speaking on the motivation for the project, Chief Olusola Alabi noted that he was moved by the fact that water is important to life, and more especially for a health facility. He added that he is an indigene of Ijebu-Jesa who has been favoured by God, hence the need to give back to his root.
According to him “I am blessed to be an indigene of Ijebu-Jesa, then our Kabiyesi counted me and my wife worthy of honorary chieftaincy. These alone are enough inspiration for us to always give back to our root.
“As a health worker, I am not comfortable seeing our general hospital lacking something as basic and essential as water. Every offices, wards and nurses station deserve functional water system. I discussed this with my wife and she gladly supported the idea. Thank God we are able to complete it now. For us, this is service to humanity, our own corporate social responsibility”. He added.
While commending the efforts of the duo, the Elegboro of Ijebu-Jesa, HRM Oba (Engr.) Moses Oluwafemi Agunsoye called on other well meaning Egboro sons and daughters to emulate such community development gesture. He noted that there is need for each and everyone to contribute their quotas to the growth and development of Ijebu-Jesa. He then prayed for more of God’s blessings in their lives.
On his part, the IJUC Global President, Engr. Olugbemiga Abudiore who visited the hospital in company of the IJUC Secretary and Chief Olasanmi Olajubu eulogised the Alabis for doing the community proud. He noted this type of effort will motivate others to take up other developmental projects in the community.
The new project will be commissioned at a date to be announced later.
