The abandoned 200-bed Infectious Diseases Centre initiated by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc (SPDC) in Imo State now looks unkempt and abandoned with grasses growing all over the place.

Apart from the weed, many staffers of the Imo State Teaching Hospital, IMSUTH, Orlu are also afraid of passing through the area because of the fear that it could be a hiding place for reptiles.

Several indigenes of Amanato community in Orlu council area who pleaded anonymity in a chat with Press, on Wednesday berated the NNPC, Seplat and the Minister of State for Petroleum, Mr. Timipre Sylva, for deceiving Imolites with a promise to deliver and fully equip the medical facilities within eighteen months.

Mr. Chijioke Ibe told Press correspondent during his visit to Imo State Teaching Hospital , IMSUTH in Orlu that it’s disheartening that the site of the abandoned project remained at a foundation stage after the companies and Silva assured Imo people that the hospital facility would be fully equipped with medical facilities for sustainable services at the initial cost of about $1.2 million.

He said despite the noise they made about it while performing the ground breaking ceremony, no structure has been put in place.

Continuing, he said, “our leaders should know that when they make promises to the people ,they must back it up with action.The project kick-started 15 months ago and it’s still the way it was after the much celebrated grand breaking event. It’s a shame and failure on their part.
