No fewer than one million people are to benefit from the ongoing Community Health Insurance Scheme in Kwara State. The Senior Special Assistant to Governor. Abdulfatah Ahmed on Media and Publicity, Dr Muyideen Akorede, made this known Friday in Ilorin during an interview with newsmen. Akorede said the development was in line with the government’s commitment to the provision of quality, affordable and accessible healthcare services.
He explained that the development was also a giant step in the government effort to transform the health sector. He also disclosed plans to renovate additional five hospitals to further move health centers closer to the people. On education, he said 400 blocks of classrooms has been constructed while 120 were to be refurbished in line with global best standard. He explained that these plans could only be realized if the people vote massively for the All Progressives Congress and refused being distracted by the antics of opposition who had little or nothing to offer.
Akorede promised that the governor would exceed expectations if re-elected as evident with the projects so far executed by his administration.
