The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye, who disclosed this while receiving the equipment at the State Hospital Ijebu-ode, appreciated the donor for being magnanimous enough in donating such a high-tech health equipment in supporting government’s effort at developing the State health sector.’
“I commend your effort for not only giving us something that will improve human capital development and make them be alive but also that will give sound mind and quality living for the Nigerians we hope for”, he said.
Ipaye assured that physiotherapy machines and other equipment donated to the State Hospital would be adequately utilised to address the health need of the people in the State, saying the present administration had redoubled its efforts at reducing some causes of death and negative health indicators.
“Some causes of death that put Nigeria in the bad light globally in terms of health indices are preventable, what you have done by donating this equipment is to help us move health indicators from very bad situation to a globally acceptable one”, he said.
In her remarks, the Managing Director Ijebu-ode State Hospital, Mrs. Oluseye Odutola commended the donor and assured them of effective utilization of the equipment for well being of the people.
