Ondo State Extols NDDC For Support In Fight Against Lassa Fever

The Ondo State Government has commended the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, for its support towards the control of the Lassa fever outbreak that hit several communities in the state earlier in the year.

The government expressed its “profound appreciation” through a letter signed by the Ondo State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro, and addressed to the NDDC Acting Managing Director, Dr. Akwagaga Lelegima Enyia.

According to the Commissioner, the country had been experiencing a serious outbreak of Lassa fever which affected several states, including Ondo State.

The Commissioner noted: “This year’s outbreak has been unprecedented in severity and it had claimed many lives.

“It will be recalled that as part of concerted efforts made to put the outbreak under control, the State Government reached out to several organizations within and outside the country. It is heart-warming that your organization responded promptly to our call by your organization’s launch of “Operation Lockout Lassa”, an initiative which comprises of public enlightenment at grassroots across the whole State as well as provision of three ambulances and other commodities to the State.”

The Ondo State Government commiserated with the NDDC on the death of one of the drivers detailed to deliver ambulances and medical supplies to the state. “Our condolences go to the affected families and our wishes with your organization,” the government said.

Dr Adegbenro said that the government was looking forward to a continued partnership with the NDDC in the collective effort to keep the people of Niger Delta safe and healthy.

The NDDC had in June donated three ambulances, Lassa fever protective kits and drugs to support the Ondo Government in its efforts to check the menace of Lassa fever in the state.
