CMD urges people to patronise public hospitals

From Jimoh Ahmed, Ikare Akoko.
The Chief Medical Director, CMD, of Ondo State Specialist Hospital, Ikare Akoko, Dr Wale Oguntuase has urged members of the public to always patronize government owned hospitals and health centres instead of quacks to endanger their lives.

Oguntuase made the statement while presenting donation to a new set of triplets born in the hospital to the family of Mr Seedu  Sunday and Kafaya Sunday who already had four children before the triplets.

He stated that government hospitals and health centres, apart from being adequately equipped are also staffed with well trained professionals.

The CMD particularly called on pregnant and nursing mothers to desist from this and patronise government health institutions.

Oguntunase reiterated that consultants are now many in public hospitals to assist in safe delivery of pregnant women.

The matron of the hospital, Mrs Beatrice Folayan commended Mrs Olu Fadare, a staff nurse who took the delivery.

The triplets according to record weighed 2kg each.

The chairman, Akoko North/East Local Government Mr Ashimi Omojola was represented at the hospital by Hon Tunbosun Adeniyi,  the council’s Supervisory Councillor for Health who assured the parents of government assistance.

The wife of the council chairman, Mrs Omowumi Omojola noted that the information will be passed to the wife of the state Governor, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu Akeredolu who has been assisting the less privileged in the society.

The 47 year- old father of the triplets, a mechanic from Eshe Street, Ikare Akoko described the hospital personnel as very dedicated and caring thanking them for the safe delivery of the triplets and the waiver given him on the delivery expenses.
