A HEALTH CENTRE CAN SAVE 500 PRISONERS FROM DYING

Ogwashi uku prison has about 900 prison inmates with no medical facility. Some of the inmates have have skin rashes, diagnossed for tuberculosis and HIV.

In 2016, i made a publication calling in the Prison and Ministry of interiors to help build a health centre so the inmates can be treated. 

The Nigeria Prison service and Ministry of interior ignore my call and went ahead and build a parameter fence which cost about Five Hundred Million Naira.

The inmates conditions are getting worse and nothing has been done. They have no access to good drugs.

The only hospital near to the Prison is General Hospital Ogwashi Uku, which services are'nt  free.

Can you stay with a Tuberculous patients for a day in the same facility?

With our collective voice, we can help these inmates get a standard health centre.

The Prison Authority and Ministry of Interior that budget close to Five Hundred Million Naira can afford Forty Million Naira to build and equip a health centre for Ogwashi Uku Prison Inmates.
