The Medilag 90 Group, made up of the 1990 medical and dental graduates of University of Lagos, College of Medicine, have urged the Lagos State Governor-Elect, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu to resurcitate 37 Pårimary Health and Dental Care Centers in the state when sworn in.

They made the demand in a press statement while congratulating Sanwo-Olu for the victory at the polls.

Spokesman of the group, Dr Dele Babade said they are happy with the election of the husband of their classmate, Dr (Mrs) Sanwo-Olu.

“It is a thing of joy for us”, he said, “ and we are quite confident that Dr (Mrs) Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu is professionally prepared and ready to play a major supportive role to her husband as the First Lady of the pre-eminent State in Nigeria”.

He added that their “first-hand knowledge of Dr (Mrs) Sanwo-Olu, makes them confident in assuring Lagosians of a compassionate and empathetic First Lady and urges them to give her and her husband their full cooperation.”

Continuing, the spokesperson, Dr. Babade stated that the close relationships and bond fostered in the class meant that they knew the Governor elect very well before now.

He described him as being more of a technocrat practiced politician.The classmates of the incoming First Lady, many of whom were involved in the electioneering campaigns for Mr Sanwo-Olu recalled the roles played by their classmates in the medical outreach program of her husband’s campaign organization.

Dr Babade emphasized Sanwo-olu firm commitment to fulfilling these healthcare goals for the people of Lagos State.

“Of particular importance is the expansion of the Lagos State Health Insurance Scheme to reach 500,000 households (2.5 million enrollments) by the Q4 of 2019. He is also determined to meet the targeted Abuja Declaration on Healthcare spending of 15%of the State budget, raising it from its current level of 8.86%,”

He urged the incoming administration to incorporate the outreach program into the State’s health care delivery system.
