By Gab Ejuwa

Oghara—The Nigerian Naval Logistics Command Headquarters, Oghara, Delta State, in exercise of its social responsibility to its host community, deployed its medical team to treat indigenes of the area for malaria, de-worming of children, laboratory tests and distribution of mosquito nets to people of the community.

According to the Flag Officer Commanding, Rear Admiral Belgory Ibe-Enwo, “The exercise is to further strengthen the harmonious and amicable relationship between the military and the civilians in the community.

“The programme provides free medical tests and care for the rural people and it is not the first by the Nigerian Navy. While it is done annually in the Navy, this is, however, the maiden edition in Oghara and environs. We aim to reduce diseases in our local communities and improve the health care in the rural areas.

“The peoples’ response is very positive. The turn up is good and we hope the next time it will be organised, more people will turn up.”
