According to Lawal, the gesture was to support health facilities and providing access to qualitative healthcare services for people of Ejigbo, the hometown of the late Islamic scholar.

He called on well-meaning meaning Nigerians to rise up and support primary healthcare to improve the health sector in their localities.

He explained that primary health care is significant to the people at the grassroots level, hence, the need to prioritize it is equally important.

He said, “We donate some medical equipment to further uplift the medical healthcare of our people.

“We choose the community hospital owned by Ansar-ud-Deen Society of Nigeria in Ejigbo and everybody sees it as a duty to assist them to further promote primary healthcare as the Federal Government has been saying, primary healthcare is very important.

“This is a rural area all cases don’t need to be transferred to the urban area, UCH is not the primary hospital to go.

“Primary health is the first hospital we should all think of and all hands must be on deck to continue to assist them. Community hospitals assist people rather than go to urban which are far away. Let us find a hospital within the vicinity where people can access medical treatment and equip them. Our roads are bad you can not carry an emergency to Ibadan.

However, The Chairman of the Management Committee of the Ansar-ud-Deen Hospital, Ejigbo, Alhaji Adeniyi Bello appreciated children of the late Chief Imam for the donations and genuine care for the well-being of the people of the town.
