Nigerians in the UK organise medical fundraiser for Ondo State's Igbokoda Kingdom

NIGERIANS resident in the UK have organised an ambitious fundraising programme to raise cash build a hospital in the Igbokoda Kingdom of Ondo State taking place in north London on Saturday July 22.


To hold at the Kentish Town Community Centre in northwest London, the event, organised by charity Extraordinary Achievers, is designed to support the vision of the local monarch, the Olu of Igbokoda Oba Afolabi Odidiomo. Extraordinary Achievers founder Waynett Peters, was recently conferred with the title Yeye Bobaselu of Igbokoda, so is seeking to repay the community by addressing its health needs.


Ms Peters said: "About 300,000 people live in the Igbokoda Kingdom but it only has one general hospital which is staffed by one doctor and six nurses. Resources and e4quipment are scare, so we hope that with this event, we will be able to generate some money to make a difference."


According to Ms Peters, anyone wishing to support the initiative can do so by either purchasing a £25 dinner ticket, a raffle ticket for £10, or by making a donation. She added that the raffle tickets have many amazing opportunities, including winning a dinner for two at varied restaurants, expensive jewellery, designer dresses, sauces, cocktails, herbal nutrients massages and some special experiences.


Starting at 5pm and going on until 9.30, the dinner, hopes to raise enough fund to also buy much-needed medical equipment. Ms Waynett has called on anyone interested to contact her on 07962 397 453 or 07375 072 718, or online at or, or to alternatively email her at
