Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has announced that three new state-owned hospitals are to be built in 2017 as part of plans to advance healthcare for residents.
At a Town Hall Meeting held at Shibiri/Ekunpa Area Office in Oto-Awori Local Council on Friday, Governor Ambode disclosed plans to construct three ultra-modern healthcare hospitals, noting that he has directed contractors to expedite construction on the projects.
“Talking about General Hospitals, in the budget we have designated General Hospitals for three areas and Ojo Local Government is one of them. It is in the pipeline, it’s just a matter of time, we are already closing in on it,” he said.
The governor also promised residents in the riverine area of Oto Awori that healthcare services will be made available and accessible to them in order to improve quality of life.
“This area is traditionally and historically known to be a major supporter of government and we must give them back for the support which they have always been known for,” he said.
