By Bakah Derick with reports 

The member of parliament for Bafut-Tubah has donated drugs worth 30 Million FCFA to the needy population of his Bafut-Tubah constituency in Mezam Division. The donation follows an influx of requests as a result of the assistance the lawmaker recently gave a 77-year-old widow in Bafut.

Hon Agho Oliver handed over the medications to the resident Doctors of Bafut and Tubah health areas, in the presence of the District Medical Officers (DMOs) of Bafut and Tubah health district on Friday April 22, 2022. 
While handing over the donation, Hon Agho Oliver explained that the drugs consisting of amongst others;  a variety of large "spectrum antibiotics for children and adults, antifungal drugs, analgesics, anti-inflammatories, antipiretics, gastric ulcers drugs, high blood pressure drugs, different varities of antihypertensive drugs; including drugs for congesive heart failure, angina pectoris, anti-cholesterol drugs, diabetis drugs and blood sugar-testing needles, blood thinners in case of stroke, AVC and others, drugs for asthmatics, mental health drugs for anxiety depression, bipolar disorders and pyschosis, osteoporosis gout, cancer, and kits for COVID testing." 

The Member of Parliament was visibly satisfied when he told his guests that the medication being handed to his constituency are "all freshly manufactured and down-loaded straight from top-performing Italian pharmaceutical industries and are all intended to be administered free of charge to vulnerable, hard-to-reach and poor-needy patients in his Bafut/Tubah constituency." 
The generous donation according to the donor is a fulfiment of his promise to ensure "no one dies in his constituency because of lack of financial resources to buy drugs." 

In addition to the drugs, the health areas also received 10 water filters for their hospitals. The Doctors and DMOs have appreciated the parliametarian describing him as a "God-sent individual." 
Emphasising that the health of a people is the wealth of the people, the Bafut and Tubah resident Doctors were grateful of the surgical nature of the intervention. They revealed that "out of every 100 patients they consult, over 36 end up lacking financial resources to follow-up on treatment, and such end up complicating their Health conditions, with others dying."

It should be recalled that the resolve to cater for  the health of the needy in Bafut and by extension, Tubah, came when Hon. Agho Oliver received a distress call some two weeks ago to assist an old 77-year-old Bafut widow, Mama Lum Monica. After providing her a New bed, matress, bed sheets and others, it was discovered She needed urgent medical attention. When She was taken to hospital for check-up, the MP's team realized many more widows, the young and the Elderly in that community lacked access to affordable healthcare. 
The MP therefore, resolved to throw his net deeper into the sea, and in the process, harvested this huge consignment of drugs, which Marie Noella Atanga, kid sister to Territorial Administration Minister, Paul Atanga Nji, promises to bring more if the present consignment actually goes to serve the purpose for which it is intended.

Equally present,  was the drugs donor, Dr. Marie Noella Atanga, and her mother, patroness of the Atanga Family Foundation, who explained to all present, and especially the medical Staff, the attachment She and her entire family places on health and the social welfare of all those living  in hard-to-reach and underserved communities like the ones Hon. Agho Oliver represents.
