The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat has come out to say that the state plans to build more general hospitals and boost its health care delivery.
Dr. Obafemi Hamzat revealed this as he discussed Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration in the last one year.
According to him, the state has involved experts in the medical sector and these professionals will do everything possible to improve the health of Lagosians in Nigeria.
He added that Lagos State government is also working on Eko and Ikeja Discos on procurement of metres since Lagosians are no longer ready to pay any unfair estimated bill sent to them.
His words, “We have gotten experts and they have done the design and Mercy Hospital has been mapped out, as we are building another Mercy Hospital.
“Also, we are building a general hospital in Ojo because we discovered there is none around that axis and we are also expanding the general hospital in Gbagada.
“We are building a spinal cord hospital in the Gbagada General Hospital,”
On the power sector, “We are discussing with the two Discos, the Eko and Ikeja Discos.
“People are not ready to pay if you send them estimated bill but by helping with the procurement of metres, it will go a long way to light up Lagos.
“We want to work with the Discos on procurement of metres.
“The capacity to get 2000 megawatts is there but the challenge is funding.”
