Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos has restated the State’s commitment to providing quality healthcare for the people, Concise News understands.
Ambode made the statement during the commissioning of the Institute of Maternal and Child Health (Ayinke House) located within the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.
According to him, “Just last year, we launched the Lagos State Health Insurance Scheme to allow residents access top quality medical care with a little contribution and support from the State government.
“These and other efforts are directed at improving the lives of our people, especially the women and children; and by extension the productivity of our nation.”
He further described the project as historic and expressed hopes that the facility would provide world-class childbirth and maternal care services to Lagosians and Nigerians
