No fewer than 2,500 people across Kogi State over the weekend, benefitted free medical check-up and treatment by Avoyi Team 4 Ododo Medical Outreach.
The medical outreach took place in Government House, Lokoja, as part of the activities put in place during the sensitisation Town Hall Forum to package the APC candidate, Usman Ahmed Ododo to emerge victorious at the upcoming governorship election in Kogi
The convener of Avoyi Team 4 Ododo, Mrs. Billie Avoyi Nwogu, said the programme was in support of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Ododo Ahmed Usman in the coming November 11 Governorship election.
She noted that the Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has done well for establishing Reference Hospital in Okene which is now providing services to the world.
“In his commitment to providing medical services to all, Governor Bello built ultra modern hospitals in Gegu, Kogi West, in Eganyin Ajaokuta LGA, respectively.
“He also built a teaching hospital in Prince Abubakar Audu University. This has allowed our medical students to get accreditation to study medicine and graduate in PAAU. That means they will not have to move to other universities to complete their courses. He also renovated and upgraded the cottage hospital Idah, to a zonal hospital with advanced medical equipment.
According to her, as the saying goes, “Success without a successor is merely delayed failure.” This is why the New Direction family, under the leadership and achievements of Alhaji Dr. Yahaya Bello, has unanimously thrown his weight behind Alhaji Usman Ahmed Ododo to assume leadership after his tenure ends on January 27, 2024 to consolidate on his achievements.
“As a united APC family, the national working committee has closely observed the success stories in Kogi. They have established a national campaign council to promote, project, and canvass for massive support and votes for our incoming governor, Alhaji Usman Ododo, and Joel Oyibo.
“Our selection of Ododo and Joel is not solely based on their handsome looks but on their seasoned professionalism and innovative leadership.
“They have played important roles in restoring order to the state’s public service and finances over the years. Although you may know Alhaji Usman Ododo as the State Local Government Auditor-General, his contributions to refining the state’s public service have been invaluable.
“He is a silent reformer and a key figure in the New Direction blueprint. He is poised to deliver even greater accomplishments once he assumes the office of governor by God’s grace after the November election.
