Sanwo-Olu pledge to invest in Health care if Elected

The Lagos State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has reiterated his readiness to improve healthcare delivery, if elected.

He said his administration would dedicate a sizeable fraction of the state’s budget to healthcare services.
The APC candidate spoke through his running mate, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, while hosting members of the state chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM).
Sanwo-Olu said his healthcare plan as contained in his manifesto, was drafted to improve the quality of health service and make it affordable to the populace. The APC candidate said the execution of the health programmes would be done in partnership with health professional bodies, including NANNM and Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
According to him, the “overwhelming support” his candidacy enjoyed among Lagosians is based on the people’s conviction in his manifesto.
He reiterated his readiness to serve the interest of all residents, if elected.
Sanwo-Olu said: “We have a robust plan for the health sector. Good health brings about productivity, which is a key element towards achieving our development blueprint to create Greater Lagos for all. The wellbeing of the people is at the centre of our programmes and we must ensure health services get better.
“The responsibility before us is huge, but we know we will not achieve anything if we did not engage you. As a powerful stakeholder, we will engage you in the process of executing our plans to solve the challenges facing the Health sector and making our hospitals better.”
NANNMA Chairman Olurotimi Awojide, who led members of the association’s executive to the visit, described the APC candidate and his running mate as a “perfect combination of brilliance and efficiency”.
The union leader said NANNM members had resolved to support their candidacy.
Also, an all-women support group, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and Kadiri Obafemi Hamzat (BOSKOH), pledged to canvass support for the APC ticket at the grassroots.
Sanwo-Olu promised that his administration would be fair to women.
He said his aims of aspiring to lead the state were rooted in his will to create a future the coming generation would be proud of.
