The people of the Abusoro community in the Akure North local government area of Ondo State will have now access to primary health care services as the European Union and Ondo State government have opened a health centre built two years ago.

In a statement signed by Daisi Omokungbe, Executive Director of PROMAD, said the organisation is happy about the news that the project has been commissioned.

The statement reads: “On April 28, we received calls and messages from the people of Abusoro community who we engaged during our project tracking visit said the ministry had come to the community to commission their health center and they promised to bring in workers by in the month of May 2022.

Omokungbe said, “in March, our ‘FollowTheProjects’, a social accountability arm of PROMAD Foundation had tracked the project and reported how the project was abandoned after the completion of works.”

“Also, in April, the organisation wrote to the European Union Delegation to Nigeria on the state of the project and why action must be taken by all partners that funded the project.”

“On April 13, the EU responded to our letter, commended PROMAD, and mandated the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning as well as the Ondo State government to deliver the project to the community,” he said.

He added that ‘FollowTheProjects’ team will follow up on the utilization and functionality of the project by June.

“We appreciate the EU for their prompt response on the project and we hope to work more with them in future engagements and monitoring projects funded by them in Nigeria,” he said.
