Gov. Akeredolu Flags-off Distribution Of $5million Biomedical Equipment
Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Monday, 24th June , 2019, flagged – off the distribution of $5Million biomedical equipment and consumables.
The equipment were the ones secured by the Governor during his visit to the United State of America (USA) last year.
Arakunrin Akeredolu secured the new medical equipment from MedShare, a U.S.-based non-profit organisation in Atlanta to strengthen the state’s health.
The Governor reiterated his commitment to make provision of quality and affordable healthcare service delivery the priority of his administration.
He said he will not renege on his administration’s campaign promise to equitably distribute the state’s resources for the benefit of all.
Akeredolu said that the multimillion Naira ultramodern and state-of-the-art biomedical equipment will be distributed across all the health facilities in the state.
He, however, asked the health professionals in the state to put the equipment to effective and good use.
Akeredolu said: “On no account should they be kept in the stores where they are not needed.
“I also hope that this gesture will serve as motivator to all our health professionals whose job will be made easier through the use of these modern equipment.”
He noted that his administration has employed some health professionals of various cadres to function in public hospitals in the state, adding that more health workers would still be employed.
One other intervention embarked upon by Governor Akeredolu in the health sector is the upgrade of health facilities in the state to provide quality services for children who are below age five and pregnant women.
