.As gov inaugurates another 10 PHCs
The Osun State residents on Tuesday, applauded the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola for being committed to their welfare.
This is even as they have promised to vote overwhelmingly for the governor and the party in future elections, as a show of appreciation for the good work the governor is doing.
Of the 10 PHCs inaugurated on Tuesday, three were inaugurated in Ilesa alone.
Speaking on behalf of the residents of Ijesaland at the inauguration of the newly renovated Primary Healthcare Centre, at Imo, Ilesa, prominent persons in the area, including former Health minister, Prof. Isaac Adewole, Chief Kunle Odeyemi and Engr. Remi Omowaiye, who is the state’s Supervisor for Works, said the administration has so far shown that what the state witnessed in the last administration in terms of development, will be small compared to what it will witness in the present administration.
The state government had on Monday commenced the inauguration of 25 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs), which are part of the already completed 100 PHCs across the state.
Prof. Adeowole who appealed to Ijesa people to ensure that they speak loudly with their votes in 2022 in support of the governor and the All Progressives Congress (APC), further said “I said it yesterday that Osun has become the leading light in the health sector as reflected in the huge commitment that the state had made to reposition the sector for the optimum use and benefit of the citizenry.
“I said it yesterday and I am repeating it that no government in Nigeria has embarked on the construction and renovation of 332 PHCs at a time as being done by the present administration in the state.
“This is a rare feat. This is also a welcome development targeted to support the health needs of the people across the nooks and crannies of the state. “
On his part, Chief Odeyemi applauded the administration for the priority given to the critical sectors of the economy since assumption office.
He described health sector as the most critical, and hailed the government for ameliorating the suffering of the people in trying to access quality and affordable health facilities in the state.
“I must commend the state government for reviving the lost glory in the health sector. This is a welcome development aimed at ensuring that citizens have access to quality and affordable healthcare delivery.
“There is no doubt that this initiative will further help to enhance quality service delivery and boost the sector for the benefit of the people of the state.
“I am appealing to our people to take greater advantage of this laudable opportunity provided by the state government towards ensuring general healthy living.
“I want to also assure the governor that in 2022, the votes we gave to our representatives in the state Assembly, will be small compared to what we will give you, ” Odeyemi noted.
Also, the Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, Oba Gabriel Adekunle Aromolaran, thanked the government for addressing the rot in the health sector.
