She appealed to the state government to help build a standard PHC in the community to alleviate the residents’ suffering.

Another resident, who gave his name simply as Mr. Igbinigie ThankGod, decried going to the neighbouring Mowe for medical treatment. He said, “Going to Mowe or a nearby hospital is not always easy particularly if it is late at night. I always manage to go to the hospital in the Redemption Camp for treatment.

“There are some critical health conditions that will require immediate medical attention. But since there is no PHC in the community, how will such victims survive?”

When contacted, the LGA chairman, Odulate Afolabi, said there was an ongoing project on the PHCs.

He said, “We will build a PHC at Ayetoro Makun. We have the lists of projects we are working on and the town is on the list already. But we have started one, we can’t jump to others. We just moved to a town to build a maternity centre and it is almost at the completion stage now. Once we are done with that, we’ll proceed to the next.”
