There was cheering news yesterday for the people of Igbogbo and Ikorodu Division in general when Hon. Babajimi Benson announced at his First Town Hall Meeting in Ikorodu that funding would be provided next year for the completion of the abandoned Federal Medical Centre in Igbogbo .

The Federal Medical Centre situated along Iyewa Road, Igbogbo, was facilitated by Sen. Olorunimbe Mamora when he was a Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District between 2003 and 2011 when Senator Iyabo Obasanjo was the Chairman, Senate Committee on Health.

Benson assured his constituents.

The abandoned project is currently covered with weeds and trees which have badly affected part of the structure. The years of abandonment has also damaged the roof and also made the structure a hideout for miscreants until recently when the equally abandoned Igbogbo Police Station which shares proximity with the project was completed for operations.
