As part of their efforts to realise a positive development in Ileogbo and its environment, Ileogbo Development Forum (IDF), a non-profit developmental organization based in the headquarters of Ayedire Local Government, State of Osun, has facilitated and sponsored an Health Initiative for Rural Development which is organized nationwide by NYSC officials.
With the NYSC officials from the state headquarters being present at the venue of the campaign, over 200 people were tested with free testing equipments, provided free medication such as anti-malaria, hypertensive ,anti dibetics and multivitamins, among other primary ailments at the Ileogbo Grade C Court, Oja Ale, and given appropriate health talk on benefits of exercise, good food and resting, in the ancient town.
The chief Imam of Ileogbo, Sheikh Nafiu Shifaudeen Adeyemo, who was present at the occasion offered the opening prayer and also got tested and given drugs.
Speaking to the journalist after the programme, Mrs Adisa Tawaklit who benefited from the programme said: “This is quite impressive as I’ve been tested for free and got drugs, something which I can’t afford personally.” “IDF is known for its developmental strides in Ileogbo and environments. I’ve always been a beneficiary of their activities. I pray God continues to strengthen them in unison and continue to promote their developmental agenda,” said Mr Kola Abeeb.
