The Ogun State government has assured of its continued investment in the healthcare system and the upgrading of the health sector, particularly at the grassroots, where it has a direct impact on the masses.
Speaking, while declaring a one-day workshop for the state National Mission Birth Attendants and Health Workers’ Association of Nigeria open, at the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps College, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta; the Chairman, Ogun State Alternate Medicine Board, Chief Nurudeen Adeleye, said that the present administration would not relent in its stride to bring quality and affordable health care services to the doorstep of the people.
Represented by the Executive Secretary of the Board, Dr. Kafayat Lawal, at the programme, tagged: ‘Current Trends in Antenatal Care, Labour and Child Delivery,’Adeleye said, ”This agency is not created to condemned or criticise any of the existing group of the practitioners, but to rather bring all of you together under one umbrella, so that the agency can help the government in controlling and registering, in order to create a database, for proper identification that will differentiate you from quacks.
Welcoming participants to the workshop, the National President of the association, Reverend (Dr.) Elizabeth Quadri, said they are confident of the present administration’s support, assuring that the association would comply with all government’s directives.
She commended the effort of Governor Abiodun for his ingenuity to establish Alternate Medicine Board, which she claimed was aimed at ensuring the general wellbeing of the people.
