ESSO, NNPC donate hospitals to Kwara, Imo communities by Idowu Olabode : April 02, 2015, 09:03:16 AM
Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited, an affiliate of Exxon Corporation and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, has donated an ultra-modern Maternity Referral Centre to Eruku, a community in Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State.According to sources, the MRC cost the collaborating organisations and an international non-governmental organization, Development Africa, over N160m.

In the same vein, residents of Obowo community in Imo State also became beneficiaries of an MRC.

Residents of both recipient communities also enjoyed week-long Free Rural Medical Aid Project, during which they were screened for various diseases and after which they received treatments.

Affected residents underwent dental and surgical procedures; ophthalmic procedures such as eye surgeries, optometric consultation, dispensing of free eye glasses, as well as training of medical personnel.

Group Medical Director at Esso Exploration and Production NigeriaLimited, Dr. Mohammed Bello Aliyu, said the project was borne out of the desire to save the lives of as many Nigerian women and children as possible.

Aliyu, who deplored the nation’s high maternal and child mortality rate, said, “The Maternity Referral Centre will support the community and, indeed, the state, by decreasing the infant and under-five mortality rate, reducing pregnancy-related deaths, and improving health outcomes of premature and low-birth-weight babies.”
