Leadership reports that Dogara in conjunction with Vantage Habitat, donated a mini health centre to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Wassa-Abuja.

The Speaker said when he went to the food and other materials to the IDPs, earlier this year, on January 7, 2016, he saw the they needed medical attention.

Dogara said “I remember in the course of the ceremony, there was one rallying cry that there was no health facility, and we promised that we were going to do something about it.

“On getting to town, we started talking to corporate bodies and donors who said we had to wait until the budget was passed. And since I wasn’t satisfied with the responses I was getting, I had to mention it to close friends that this is one of the immediate needs of the IDPs and fortunately, Capt. Hosa took it upon himself to partner with us and do this (referring to the Chairman of Vantage Habitat).

“So I want to commend him for this gesture. That’s why I’m happy that through their efforts, we have been able to put this in place. Some may express disappointment that this is small, thinking that it would be a gigantic structure.”

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vantage Habitat, Capt. Hosa Okumbo also thanked the Speaker for coming up with such a laudable project.
