Orpin, who is the House Committee chairman on Appropriation, said the programme is one of the modest ways of responding to the health and development needs of children within her constituency.

The lawmaker who stressed the need for leaders in the country to prioritize the wellbeing of children, observed that many children have suffered growth impediments and several other factors that accounted for why they cannot grow well. “It is our hope that every child grows and lives his full potential but depriving infants and young children of basic health care and denying them the nutrients needed for growth and development sets them up to fail in life.

“But when children are well nourished, cared for and provided with a safe and stimulating environment, they are more likely to enjoy a healthy growth and live a less disease life,” she added. She said the free deworming programme was carried out in partnership with management of Tyonex Nigeria Limited, a pharmaceutical company being managed by Dr Emmanuel Tyovenda Agba.
