Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has said Akure, the Ondo State capital and Ondo City will soon get General Hospitals to replace the old ones that were amalgamated to form a Multi Complex Teaching Hospitals in both towns.

It will be recalled that the Akeredolu’s administration signed into law the establishment of the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Complex (UNIMEDTHC).

The Law amalgamated existing specialist hospitals in Akure and Ondo town to form a Multi Complex Teaching Hospital, named University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital Complex for the already existing University of Medical Sciences.

Governor Akeredolu said his administration understands that Teaching hospitals are meant for referral cases, adding that the two towns will soon get another General Hospital.

Arakunrin Akeredolu was speaking at the Ekimogun Day Festival 2019, which was held at the Oba Adesanoye Civic Center, Ondo town on Saturday, December 7, 2019.

The Governor also appreciated the role of the Osemawe and Paramount Ruler of Ondo Kingdom, Oba Victor Kiladejo in fostering peace in the kingdom.

According to the Governor, the Monarch’s initiative of getting the youths out to renounce their membership of different cult groups has brought peace into the kingdom and the state at large.

The Governor said: ”I want to thank you, sir. You started it and other Traditional Rulers followed suit. You brought the young cultists together and they renounced their membership of the groups. We have seen the benefits in the peaceful atmosphere. I thank you for using your foundation to train a few of them. The Deji of Akure has done it and Owo has followed suit a few weeks ago.”

Arakunrin Akeredolu also disclosed that his administration will soon embark on the construction of rural roads in Ondo Kingdom, through the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) of the world bank.
