Why I organised free medical-outreach for my constituents - Hon. Golu

Why I organised free medical-outreach for my constituents - Hon. Golu

A member of the House of Represen­tatives, Hon. Timo­thy Golu recently said the well being of his constitu­ents is his priority as he or­ganized a 3-Day Free Medi­cal Outreach.
 
Golu who is representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Constituency made the pro­nouncement in Pankshin General Hospital during the flagging off of the free medi­cal outreach he organized in conjunction with National AIDS Control Agency and Project Zero.
 
The free medical outreach included Surgery, Eye test and treatment, Malaria, Ty­phoid, Hepatitis, HIV/AIDS test and treatment among others.
 
The Lawmaker explained that the gesture came as a re­sult of his desire to assist his people particularly the less privilege, who for lack of fi­nance hardly go to hospital for treatments.
 
“It is very unfortunate nowadays people hardly go to the hospital for treatment of ailments that are silently and slowly killing them be­cause of lack of funds.
 
“These are the same peo­ple that elected us into office; it will a disservice if I turn away my eyes and not ren­der assistance to them in this manner”, Golu declared.
 
He said, “This is just the beginning as plans are un­derway to dig boreholes and construct roads in various communities in my constit­uency because I realized that these are the basic things that all of us whether rich or poor needs in order to live a meaningful and purposeful live here on earth.
 
According to him, similar gesture would be replicated in Kanke and Kanam Local Governments so that many indigent people could ben­efit from his service haven seen the out surge of people for the programme in Pan­skhin.
 
Also speaking during the occasion, Senator Jeremiah Useni, called on other po­litical appointees to take a cue from what Hon. Golu did and better the lives of the people in their constit­uencies.
 
Useni disclosed that he and his wife were going to resuscitate the health pro­gramme his wife mid-wife when he was the Minister of FCT, Abuja years back.
 
According to him, sick­ness knows no race, reli­gion or political differenc­es as it cut across all, hence the need for people to main­tain a healthy living to wade it off.
 
In his remarks, Plateau State Commissioner of Health, Dr Kamshak Kuden, who flagged-off the pro­gramme, commended the Lawmaker for the gesture and called on other elected office holders to take a cue from him.
 
Kuden disclosed that the state government intended to commence similar free medical outreach in some local Governments in the state as way of lifting the well being of the citizenry.
 
The Commissioner com­mended Governor Simon Lalong for the prevailing peace on the Plateau, which had given room for the mixing of people on pro­grammes of common in­terest in spite of party affil­iation.
 
Present at the occasion were, members of the House of representatives- Hon. Sol­omon Maren, Hon. Rima Shawulu, Hon. John Bull and Plateau APC Chair­man, Mr Latep Dabang, PDP Central Zone Vice Chairman, Mr Benedict Shi­knuhul and former speakers of Plateau and Bauchi Hous­es of Assembly Hon. Titus Alarms and Hon. Rifkatu Samson respectively among others.
