Shokunbi Nurudeen Ebuoso, a Councillorship aspirant for Ward E (Aga/Ijomu) in Ikorodu Local Government Area, has provided free medical care for 150 residents as part of his response to the yearnings of his people.

At the outreach program held at the open space beside the now defunct Oriwu Merchant Hotels, Ireshe Road, Ikorodu, 150 residents were examined for BP out of which 100 were screened and provided with 100 reading glasses.

The medical outreach was organized in conjunction with Alhaja Shakirat Enifeni Foundation.

The young politician, speaking with THE IMPACT, said that the medical programme was staged because health is paramount and that the turnout justified the fact that people really need good medical attentions.

While stating that there are other intervention programmes lined up for the residents of his Ward, Ebuoso also said that he would be pursuing medical care for the people if elected into office.

“I thank people in my ward for coming. I wasn’t really expecting this large turnout, but this has shown that people are really in need of medical care, and this is one of the programmes that I will focus on when elected to represent my people”, he said.

“We are also planning general body checkup which is part of our health agenda.

“Aside this health programme, we have others that are still coming up after the Ramadan. People are asking for food and due to this, we are going to be organizing food palliative for them as our support for our people, especially those in need in this harsh time”, he added.

Hon. Munirat Yisa, former Vice Chairman, Imota Local Council Development Area, who was one of the beneficiaries of the free glasses provided, commended the initiative.

Many of the residents that also benefitted also commended Shokunbi for the gesture.

Other political leaders that were present at the medical mission were Alhaji Lamidi Folorunsho, Chairman, Justice Forum Ikorodu LG, Hon. Adebowale, Council Leader, Ikorodu LG, Mr Abiodun Adebayo, Chairman, APC Ward E and also the aspirant’s father and former Chairman of Ward E, Mr Ebuoso among others.
