The Federal Medical Centre’s new board held its inaugural meeting.
The newly inaugurated Board of the Federal Medical Centre in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, has charged the contractors doing business with the hospital to brace up as it (new board) will not tolerate shoddy jobs.
The Board’s Chairman, Sanusi Takko, who handed down the warning at the board’s inaugural meeting in Abeokuta, remarked that the contractors owed the hospital and its patients the onerous obligations of producing excellent results.
“Nobody is immune to sickness, because we are all going to fall sick at one time or the other and it may be the lot of any of the contractors to use any of the structure that was not well built” he said.
The chairman pledged the preparedness of his board to render effective leadership geared towards the rapid transformation of the twenty years old health institution. He boasted about the competence of his members whom he described as people of vision and integrity who had excelled in their various areas of endeavours.
“I wish to remark that the board is going to produce the best board ever in the history of this hospital, to the extent that the next board will have to queue behind us in terms of performance,” Mr. Takko stated.
The chairman explained that the board will do everything within its powers to convince the Federal Government to pay due attention to the hospital.
“I have gone round and I could see that the hospital needs a lot of help. There are too many patients and the capacity of the hospital is such that it cannot take the number of patients I have seen in this hospital today,” he said.
In his own comment, the Medical Director, Oladapo Sotiloye, said he had a lot of expectations from the board which he described as very responsive.
“Hardworking management board, collaborating together means progress for the hospital and succour for the people. We are really delighted to have the new board,” Mr. Sotiloye noted.
The Medical Director urged every member of staff to work selflessly so that the dreams and aspirations of the management to render excellent service to the people are achieved.
The board members are Nkechi Sackey, Gladys Sasore, Ibrahim Hassan, Joseph Soboyejo, Edamisan Temiye, Azubuike Okwo, Ifeoma Anagbogu, C.O. Akinsanya and O.A. Oyesiku who is the secretary.
