The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees chairman, Chief Tony Anenih Sunday brought smiles to the faces of elderly patients at the Geriatric Centre in the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan, as he donated the sum of N100 million to the centre.

The Centre which is a brain-child of the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Temitope Alonge, is endowed by Anenih for the treatment of elderly people at subsidized rates.

The PDP chieftain, who was represented by Matthew Urhoghide, chairman, Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex, Board of Management said, “I cannot think of a nobler service to mankind than a proper attention to the health needs of the elderly”.

Earlier, in his welcome address, the CMD said, “Living to old age may be attained with a lot of challenges but the main focus should be on aging gracefully and this is in the purview of geriatricians”.

The centre, according to Alonge, provides care for acute life threatening ailments in the elderly as well as caring for senior citizens with chronic diseases as outpatient clients.

“The financial burden for attendees at the centre has been lessened by the buy-in of 50 per cent as rebate for services provided knowing fully well that most of them are pensioners”, he said.

One of the elderly, Mrs. Grace Apanpa, who spoke on behalf of the elders’ forum, expressed appreciation to the endower, Anenih and Alonge for reduction of fees while also requesting for tricycles to ease transportation problem of the elderly to the centre.

  1. The example of my father/ role model speaks volumes of his heart of gold. Other Nigerians would build houses for lady friends, build hotels, or build gas stations to milk the already poor citizens. My God who moved him to do this, will reward him with long life in Jesus’s name.Engr.Uwemedimo Umoumoh:i from:Uyo(Akwa Ibom State)
