Gbajabiamila opens clinic in Surulere

Gbaja2   Gbaja1In May this year, the leader of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, formally declared open the Surulere Clinic in the Barracks area. Speaking at the event, he said that the project took 10 years to be realised on account of ‘some powerful people who said it was over their dead body that this project would be completed.” He continued:
‘I place a lot of importance on health matters. Every year, we have our two-day health festival in Surulere where we bring in health facilitators from around the world. We must pray that nobody has any reason to visit this place, but if you do, you will enter and come out in good health. It is important that we understand that health is wealth. We would not compromise, but we will ensure it measures up to the standard of any local government clinic across the world.’
He also had high praise for Mrs Bamidele Hussain, the executive secretary of Surulere local government, for her unstinting support. Mrs Hussein, in turn, said that the clinic would be named after the lawmaker himself, and added:
‘The provision of this facility is based on the sustainability of the health care sector in our local government, that is why the package of the facility revolves around a comprehensive health services including maternal and child health services such as antenatal care and family planning, non-communicable disease screening site, such as cervical cancer, child welfare services like basic child survival strategies which include growth monitoring and immunisation services. Also included are out-patient unit, accident and emergency unit, laboratory, maternity ward and Labour room; admission ward; pharmacy and a proposed site for dental services, eye care centre and a minor operation theatre.’
