Some of the past aids provided ended up in the wrong hands - Customs Boss.

In an effort to alleviate the suffering of vulnerable individuals and those who are less affluent across the country, the federal government has promised that it will maintain its collaborative efforts with orphanage homes henceforth. Adewale Adeniyi, Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), made the promise during an evaluation visit to Dorian Home, an orphanage located in Akure, the capital of Ondo State. Adeniyi said the assessment trip was vital to preventing government goodwill from being misapplied.

Previously, when they sought to stretch their hands in harmony to locations such as this one, they either ran into scenarios in which some of those items could be misappropriated and end up in the wrong hands, or some of those goods could also end up in the marketplaces and then be sold. In any case, they were unsuccessful. So, they want to find such organisations in their current evaluation strategy. They need to make sure they have a solid framework in place to power their efforts. Then, enthusiasm and dedication are must-haves.

Necessary resources will be made available to competent facilities.

His evaluation of the situation during his visit to Dorian’s home revealed that all three of these factors are present here. They would offer their hands of aid and collaboration to those individuals and groups in any and all other organisations of this kind where they observe the presence of those qualities. They have determined that this facility is capable of housing up to one thousand children; hence, they need to provide these children with food, clothing, and other necessities such as medicine.

Therefore, in any of these regions, they would regularly look at their stores and send the types of products that could assist them in reaching the goals for which these kinds of homes are put up. This would be done to ensure they had the necessary resources available. He added that the inspection had to take place because the organisation wanted to be able to help the home care for resident children because they had the potential to become future leaders. The head of Customs also mentioned that providing supplies for the upkeep of children in these homes is among NCS obligations.

The orphanage homes provide for the needs of its members.

In response, the General Manager of Dorian Home, Mr. Niyi Ogunleye, who represented the home’s founder, Dr. Lola Bayode, stated that the home not only focuses on providing the children with a place to live, food to eat, and clothing, but that they likewise take care of their educational needs for the children to be able to achieve their dreams despite the difficulties they face. Ogunleye further mentioned that the home has been concentrating on its stated objective of providing appropriate housing and catering for the welfare of the vulnerable, such as children, the elderly, widows, youths, and victims of conflicts and community confrontations.

According to him, Dr. Lola Bayode is extremely enthusiastic about the children who live in this home, and she is dedicated to providing the children with everything they require in order to realise their aspirations in life. In addition to the children who are currently staying at the facility, the Dorian Home also provides such for other children. He added that it is a positive turn of events that the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service was able to visit their facilities here and conduct an inspection.

Efforts of the Dorian Home Founders receive commendations.

On the other hand, the customs boss said that the fact that the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dorian Home, Dr. Lola Bayode, took the time and effort to construct the facilities that are in existence today which demonstrates that she cares deeply about the health and safety of the children. While Ogunleye, the general manager, also affirmed that he is confident that Dr. Lola Bayode is not only giving an empty talk about the idea that she is taking care of the orphans in the community because the result is already in the display.
