Gas Coy. commences rehabilitation of primary health centre in FCT

The Gas Aggregation Company, Nigeria Limited (GACN) began the rehabilitation of the Damangaza Primary Health Center in Lokogoma, FCT on Monday.

GACN Managing Director, Mr. Lekan Ogunleye, who spoke at the project’s inauguration, said that the project was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility in the community.

The Nigerian News Agency reports that GACN was incorporated in Nigeria in 2010, with the purpose of stimulating growth in natural gas utilization.

Lekan, who denounced the dilapidated state of the health center, said GACN staff members contributed intervention funds to equip the hospital with basic operational equipment.

“We are simply human beings working in this area, and it is important that we find out what is happening in our environment.

“It is important that we see in our little way what we can do to support and encourage people, and that is why we have identified this hospital.

“Our goal is to do whatever we can to help restore the hospital to normal operating condition.

“It is important that we manage expectations, we will make sure to fix the physical infrastructure with the basic operating equipment of the hospital,” said Ogunleye.

However, he said the company would monitor the project to ensure quality work was done so that Damangaza residents received treatment in a decent environment.

“From God in two weeks, the whole place will look different.

“We hope and aspire that it is not a unique exercise. Hopefully next year we would be following up to see how the hospital is doing, ” Ogunleye said.

He urged other organizations to emulate the company, noting that such interventions were critical to building a balanced society for all.

“If we build a society that works for a few, it will never work for all,” he emphasized.

For his part, the president of the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Abdullahi Candido, said that many communities in the city urgently needed this type of intervention.

On behalf of Dahiru, Supervisory Councilor for Health, AMAC, Cándido greeted GACN for the gesture and asked the company to extend the intervention to other communities.

“AMAC cannot do it all alone. That is why we need more of this type of assistance, ”he said.

The project consultant, Mr. Emmanuel Bako, said that the company would, among other things, install basic equipment in the delivery room to curb maternal and infant mortality.

Damangaza Etsu James Budebo, while praising GACN, said that the area had been abandoned for a long time before the intervention.

Budebo is committed to making good use of the facility to ensure that people benefit greatly.
