Delta Inmates: Dame Okowa Offers Free Medical Care *Esezobor Hails Effort

Blank NEWS Online (NIGERIA) -From Editor’s DESK:

THE five correctional centres across Delta State have received tons of free medical items from the Wife of the State Governor, Dame Edith Okowa.

The gesture of the presentation of medication to the Nigerian Correctional centres, is in a bid to sustain their access to improved and constant healthcare, the five correctional centres across Delta State.

The first Lady’s pet project, O5 Initiative has consistently been reaching out to inmates in the state in different dimensions.

Dame Edith Okowa said:
“Before 2020, we had made it a point of duty to reach out to the prisons in the state with medications at least twice a year in addition to other items.

But with the advent of COVID-19 last year, we had to collapse the medical outreach to once a year and so we have gathered enough drugs to last them for a while.

“But as much as this is a product of the O5 Initiative vision, we want this to continue even after this administration because the inmates will still be in need of medical care.

“Personally, I love continuity of good policies and legacies. Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has done what he can do and in 2023, we would be gone.

“But we do not want this action to die and the only way to sustain it is to get the State Ministry of Health involved”.

She urged the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Ejiro Ogheneaga to makeke it a point of duty to reach out to those around them in love, especially in this season of celebrations and feasting.

The of Corrections, Delta State Command, Dr. Ovie Esezobor who was accompanied by the Correctional Centres in Agbor, Sapele, Kwale, Ogwashi-Uku and Warri, in his remarks after receiving the medical items, extended the good will of the Controller General, whom he said had gotten winds of the positive developments in the state.
