About 5,000 people in the riverine area of Ondo State are to benefit from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) free health programme.

The state’s representative on the Governing Board of NDDC, Mr Amuwa Benson, spoke with  reporters in Akure, the state capital, at the weekend.

He said the programme would kick-off before the end of this month. Amuwa said Igbekebo and Zion-Pepe have been chosen as centres for the programme.  He said the exercise was part of the commission’s responsibility to the oil-producing communities.

Amuwa said: “It is responsibility of the commission to bring qualitative health services to the doorstep of the people in the mandate area and that is why the commission has chosen Igbekebo and Zion-Pepe as meeting points for the programme. Our target covers those with minor and severe ailments because health is wealth”.
