The Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke on Wednesday, reiterated his administration's commitment to quality service delivery in public healthcare centres in the state, outlining efforts to revamp infrastructures in hospitals to meet the health needs of the people.

Adeleke gave the assurance at the commissioning of an 80-bed SDG hospital in Ipetumodu, describing the intervention as a great contribution to the provision of healthcare development and services for the people of Osun state. 

According to a statement by the Governor's spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the Governor who was represented at the event by his deputy, Prince Kola Adewusi, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for citing the hospital in the state, noting that the project was a further testimony of the love of the president for the people of Osun state.

He also lauded the Spokesman to President Buhari, Mr Femi Adesina, for doing the state proud with the commendable service rendered to the nation in the last eight years.

 "He (Femi Adesina) is the facilitator of this SDG hospital that will enhance the well-being of the people of our dear state."

Governor Adeleke said his administration has committed a lot of investment in the health sector, which includes a recently concluded medical surgery initiative that benefitted twenty-two thousand people in the nine federal constituencies.

"I recently approved hazard and other related allowances for resident doctors of the UniOsun Teaching Hospital. This ensured that Osun was not affected in the recent national warning strike by resident medical doctors," he stated. 

Speaking further, the Governor noted that the state has concluded a survey of needs analysis of our various hospitals, adding that the next stage is an ongoing review to ensure the hospitals and health centres are equipped to service the populace accordingly.

"The SDG hospital being commissioned today is therefore a very helpful addition to the sustained efforts of our government to meet the health needs of our people.

"On behalf of the people and government of Osun state, we are elated

at the completion of the project. It is on this note that I am honored and privileged to Commission this hospital in service of humanity."
