They also faulted the Commissioner’s claim, while insisting her role even in absence of qualified hands would be to help employ more personnel rather than moving the equipments to her own desired location.

“The donor organizations, Unilever and Lafarge carefully chose Ota and the types of equipments before the installations. It is wrong for the Commissioner to unilaterally decide to remove them”, Mr. Jaiyesimi, one of the stakeholders who reacted to the development told Objectv Media.

“The Government did not give us and is therefore morally wrong to come and take it away”, another stakeholder, Aremson Adeyinka said.

A lawyer and activist, Barrister Isaac Ogbah while condemning sudden removal of the equipments from Ota General Hospital, threatened legal action if the equipments are not returned in one piece.

“We are still clamoring that our roads be fixed in Ota, but since then; Government ignored us, and now the little achievements through private efforts are still being looted”, Isaac Ogbah said.
