Over 1,500 Lagosians benefit from Ikeja Electric free medical services

Over 1,500 residents living in various communities within the coverage of the Ikeja Electric Distribution Company have benefitted from a four-day free medical service.

The outreach which was focused on preventing and containing non-communicable diseases with special attention to diabetes and hypertension was organized by the Ikeja Electric Distribution Company in partnership with XT Monitor Limited.

The Head of Corporate Communications, Ikeja Electric, Mr. Felix Ofulue, said that the exercise was in line with the objectives of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program which entailed giving back to the communities in which it operates.

Ofulue noted that the initiative, which was taking place for the second time in two years, demonstrates IE’s commitment to the well-being of customers within its network.

In his words: “Firstly, as a responsible business, we are concerned about the well-being of our customers. Again, this initiative is also geared towards supporting the efforts of government in providing accessible healthcare to some of the underserved communities within Ikeja Electric’s network. We have a long history of providing Medicare and other beneficial projects that is aimed at improving the well-being of residents within its network and the outreach will be held across the six business Units of the Company.”

“You will recall that in the recent past, we have deployed quite a number of healthcare interventions in communities under our network, so another part of the concept is also to stimulate interest and stir other notable institutions to embrace the responsibility of assisting in providing affordable healthcare to the underserved. We are hoping that the residents of these communities will make good use of the opportunity.”

Speaking in the same vein, the Managing Director, XT Monitor Limited, Mr. Kayode Adeoti, said “the medical outreach aligns with our strategy of engagement with the communities and also provides a platform to demonstrate that we and our principal, Ikeja Electric care for the wellbeing of the customers in the communities where we work. It is our hope that the impact will be significant and far reaching for the beneficiaries”.

The free medical care was facilitated by a United States Medical Mission (USMM) comprising of five medical specialists who provided the free medical treatment to over 1,500 beneficiaries.

Over the years, Ikeja Electric has been socially responsible with provision of life enriching programs which focus on entrepreneurship empowerment and medical outreach in its drive to provide value and contribute to human development.
