9th June was a remarkable day as EL-LAB Medical Diagnostic and Research Center, Festac Town made a donation to Mother and Child Health Care Center in Festac Town, Lagos.
The Donation was led by the Managing Director , EL LAB , Prince Elochukwu Adibo and also in attendance was the former chairman , Amuwo Odofin , Comrade Adewale .Prince Elochukwu Adibo has called on government at all levels to prioritize health. He noted that health is a right and not a privilege.
In his words, “Nigerians need to have the best medical care delivery anywhere in the country. It is their right.”
Prince Elochukwu Adibo made this known while donating Phototherapy medical equipment to Mother and Child Health Care Center in Festac Town, Lagos.
The Managing Director further averred that the donated phototherapy medical equipment is for the treatment of neonatal jaundice, which is common amongst new-borns during their first days of life, and if not treated early, the child could have a lot of damage.
“The neonatal jaundice is a condition that is predominantly responsible when a child begin to change colour to yellow.”Prince Elochukwu Adibo while granting an interview after donating the medical equipment heaped praises on the immediate past Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale for his innovativeness, ingenuity and commitment to Public Private Partnership (PPP).
“I have to thank Comrade Adewale for allowing the PPP project to come to light in Amuwo Odofin Local Government. I need to confess that I was moved by his sheer zeal and commitment in moving the health sector forward in this locality. I will also advise government at all levels to key into this project and make provision for more budgetary allocation to the health sector for quality service delivery. -Prince Adibo.
Meanwhile, Comrade Adewale has commended the donor for living up to expectation and keeping the hope alive in the health sector.
“You can all agree with me now that in Nigeria the PPP is what we need now, since the country seems to be broke. Corruption has eaten deep into our fabric, it is so endemic. But by the time you commit the private sector, having monitored them, you will enjoy quality value.
“ The gesture is a right step in the right direction. It is enshrined in the corporate law that a percentage should be given back.
“However, it takes a spirited individual like Prince Adibo to give back to the society as part of his Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The Immediate Past Executive Chairman further call on corporate bodies and other spirited individual to follow suit and perform their CSR.
