Odunmbaku’s leadership was evident as he addressed the community, reinforcing the message that continuity in public health efforts is essential. He highlighted that maintaining rigorous hygiene practices is a collective responsibility that requires sustained commitment from every resident.


“This initiative is a vital part of our broader efforts to curb the spread of cholera and protect the health of our citizens,” stated Honourable Odunmbaku. “By educating our community and providing them with the necessary tools and knowledge, we can effectively combat this outbreak and prevent future occurrences.”


The outreach program provided a unique opportunity for residents to engage in a two-way dialogue with officials, enabling them to receive personalized advice on how to manage and prevent cholera in their households and neighborhoods. This personal interaction ensured that the information provided was well understood and internalized, fostering a culture of awareness and proactive prevention.
