”In addition, I equipped Ogidi Health Centre due to its inhabitable condition during my on the spot assessment. The University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) is having infrastructural deficit and it’s painful for me as a medical doctor.

I have written to the Presidency, Ministry of Health and others to get special intervention after interacting with the CMD”.
