The People’s Voice Advocacy Network read the news of the shabby condition of the state owned General Hospital Lafiagi, Edu Local Government Area, in the recent report made available by a foremost civil society organisation named Elites Network for Sustainable Development (ENetSuD). We are surprised that despite several millions of public funds reported to have been injected into the said renovation through contract awards, the situation still remains the same.

In a press statement signed by the group’s Assistant Publicity Secretary, Comrade Abdulraheem Olaitan, the group applaud the giant stride of ENetSuD in following Kwara’s money to the nooks and crannies of the country while requesting for the detailed report of it findings so as to keep the public abreast of happenings.

“First and foremost, we want to applaud this courageous step taken by ENetSuD in ensuring that public funds meant for the development of our dear state are well spent. They have succeeded in bridging the gap created by 9th KWHA in abdicating their statutory functions of legislative oversight by sleeping over one of its core mandates.

“In her report titled ‘Contracts for Lafiagi General Hospital Under Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq Administration’, ENetSuD reveals how the KWSG spent a total sum of N106,600,000 for the complete renovation of Lafiaji General Hospital through 3 different contract awards. It is sad to learn that despite all these millions of naira expended, the hospital is still in a wrecked conditions. Alas!

Going by ENetSuD investigations and findings, the hospital has no constant water supply, epileptic power has become a norm, lack of medical equipments, to mention but a few. One will begin to ask – where is the over N106million the KWSG under the leadership of Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq claimed to have used in renovating the hospital?”

The group requested that ENetSuD should come out with the details of her investigations and findings while imploying Kwarans to hold their legislators accountable for their ineptitudeness.

“While applauding ENetSuD, we request that a detailed report of her findings should be published for public scruitiny. Since the KWSG has refused to domesticate the Freedom of Information Bill (FoI Bill) in Kwara State, we hope Kwarans will start holding members of the 9th KWHA accountable for the anti-people policies of the Executive in the manner in which their common patrimony was recklessly spent without the desired results.”
