Why We Converted Obasanjo’s Donated Building To Doctors’ Quarters – Governor
The Ogun State Government on Friday explained why it converted a former private home of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to a doctors quarters.
Mr Obasanjo donated the building to the state government to be an isolation centre for coronavirus patients in Abeokuta.
Governor Dapo Abiodun explained the stance of the government at a press conference held in his Iperu private residence in Remo North Local Government Area of the state.
He was giving an update on the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown order.
He said the government appreciated Mr Obasanjo for the gesture. He, however, explained that the conversion of the building was as a result of “pressure from residents of the area, the majority of whom are elderly people, who expressed worry that placing the isolation centre in the community was a risk to their lives”.
The governor said he bowed to the pressure of the elderly, adding that “we got push-back from residents of the area, who claimed that majority of them are elderly persons. We have to listen to them”.
