NEMA donates building materials to OAUTH, Ile-Ife



The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Friday donated building materials worth millions of naira to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTH), IleIfe in Osun, to rebuild buildings affected by natural disaster.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some of the items donated include: ceiling boards, bag of cements, roofing sheets, zinc and nails, among others.

Donating the items in Ile-Ife, AVM Muhammadu Muhammed, NEMA Director-General, said the building materials were meant for repair and rebuild of some of the collapsed buildings affected by natural disasters in the hospital.

Muhammed, represented by Mr Olusegun Afolayan, NEMA Zonal Head of Operations, said donation of the building materials to the hospital was necessitated when the attention of the agency was drawn to some of the buildings within the hospital that needed urgent repairs.

He said: “NEMA came on assessment tour to check the level of damage and the repairs needed to be carried out across some departments in the hospital, before the delivery of these building materials.

“Our attention was drawn to some of the buildings within the teaching hospital in March 31, and we came on an assessment tour in April to see things for ourselves.

“During the assessment tour, we visited the staff quarters, hospital wards, operation theatres, laboratories, consultant offices, among other departments affected by the disaster.

“And, that is why NEMA is donating these building materials to fix the affected building for better healthcare services.”

He commended the Federal Government for donating the items, urging the management of the teaching hospital to make judicious use of it.

In his remarks, Prof. Victor Adetiloye, the Chief Medical Director of OAUTH, thanked NEMA for the donation of the building materials to the hospital.

Adetiloye noted that the materials would be used judiciously for the purpose for which it was given without any diversion.

He said the institution would continue to maintain synergy with NEMA, especially in the areas of managing issues with urgent concern.
