The building and the services it renders are in sharp contrast – The roof of the building is partially ruined, with the walls and the ground floor partly plastered; yet to residents of Low-Cost Housing Estate, Abesan, Ipaja, it is their lifesaver.
Akinyele Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC), Abesan, besides being an uncompleted building, lacks the basic facilities of a healthcare centre.
Interestingly, the construction of the PHC started in 2013, and it is yet to be completed seven years after. The process for the construction started with an invitation to tender, advertised on May 20, 2013.
The tender said: “Interested companies should make a submission in two copies clearly marked ‘Tender’ with evidence of payment of N25,000 non-refundable as the processing fee all forwarded to the address below not later than 3rd June 2013.” (Guardian)
