Yellow fever outbreak: Ika political office holders should carry out fumigation and immunization exercise – Egbonimali
An American based Nurse and vocal online personality, Egbonimali, has called on Ika political office holders to carry out fumigation and immunization exercise in Ika land. Egbonimali made the call during the week through a recorded On-line video.
The Agbor born scientist in the On-line video record blamed Ika political office holders who despite their levels of education and exposure are not taking the issue of health care seriously.
His words, “I am not happy that our people are dying on a daily basis back in Nigeria due to a recent yellow fever outbreak in Ute-Okpu and Idumuesa. This should not be happening when we have educated political office holders of Agbor and Ika extractions. Yellow fever disease can easily be handled if our political office holders sponsor the fumigation of our environment and the immunization of our people. The health of our people should be taken seriously by both government and our Agbor, Ika political office holders. Posterity will not forgive us if we jettison the idea of quality health care system for our people.
He further said, “This month makes it ten years of the sad collapsed tank incident at College of Education, Agbor that led to the untimely death of five children and pupils of the school. Unfortunately, no single public report on the incident. This keeps happening and at the detriment of our people. It’s time we start doing the right thing and tell our people that we care about them. Our political office holders should understand that yellow is currently ravaging our communities of Ute-Okpu and Idumuesa. They should fumigate Ika land and immunize our people now without any hesitation.
