Ogun offers free surgery to 800

Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

Services offered include eye, dental, medical and general surgeries.

The Ogun State government says it has offered over 800 people free surgeries in the last two years.

The State Commissioner for Health, Olaokun Soyinka, said the processes covered eye, dental, medical and general surgeries.

He said the state government partnered with various non-governmental organizations including Rotary Club International, Indo-Eye Care Foundation, Mercy said No and other humanitarian groups to achieve the feat.

The commissioner added that with the support of Rotary Club international, the state’s first modern prosthetic limb service was inaugurated. Technicians were trained in the assembly and fitting for the manufacture of at least 500 artificial limbs.

Mr. Soyinka added that no fewer than 107 limbs have been fitted to needy patients who were victims of accident. He also stated that thousands of people have also been screened, diagnosed and treated of various ailments.

Mr. Soyinka said that the medical mission was one of the focus of the Ibikunle-led administration’s commitment towards taking healthcare delivery service to the doorstep of its people.

“The vision of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun-led administration in health will be realized by ensuring that the majority of our programmes embody elements of our three cross-cutting priorities which include people, prevention and proven interventions for the healthcare sector,” he said.
