Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, on Friday reiterated his administration’s commitment to ensuring that residents have adequate access to health care delivery.
The governor stated this during the commissioning of Renal Dialysis Unit, High Dependency Unit and the Diabetes Screening and Treatment Centre built inside the Adeoyo State Hospital, Ring Road, Ibadan.
The projects were built and equipped with the support from Global Fund, the Afolabi Family of Kaderu Compound, Ibadan and the Lions Clubs International, District 404 B1, Nigeria.
The governor equally inspected six Primary Health Care Centres out of the about 200 already renovated PHCs across the 351 Electoral Wards of the state.
Speaking at the Adeoyo State Hospital, Ring Road, he said: “The Oyo State Ministry for Health, with the support from Global Fund, put this Renal Dialysis Centre together, and this unit, today, is being unveiled by me this Friday, 10th of June, 2022, for use.
“I have been asked to give one week for consumables and all of that and I am coming back to see that it is actually working.
“This High Dependency Unit majorly came from resources from the Afolabi family and Oyo State Government and also the Global Fund.
“This Unit, which we can start using almost immediately, is being unveiled.
They can move staff around and we want to see it functional.
“The Afolabi family also promised that they are willing to do more and support us more if we demonstrate that we can handle this, and I believe that the Oyo State government and the health family will not let you down.
“I will personally also ensure that I come in here incognito and whatever I see is what I will say to the people of Oyo State.’’
“So, I want to, on behalf of the government and the people of Oyo State, thank the Afolabi family and also the Global Fund.”
