Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has promised that all the ongoing projects in the state will be completed by the expiration of his administration on May 29, 2019.
According to Governor Ajimobi, all the projects that are ongoing- social, physical infrastructural projects, health, education and other projects will be completed before the end of his administration.
Ajimobi made this known while inspecting the extent of work at Pediatric and Maternity Centre, Jericho, Ibadan, on Wednesday evening.
He described the Jericho centre as an integrated health service delivery centre meant to render qualitative services to address issues like tuberculosis, maternal and child mortality.
“We are known for modernising Oyo state; we are not only modernising the education sector but also the infrastructure, physical environment and more importantly, the health sector.
“We believe we should have an integrated health service delivery centre where we can have a Maternal and Pediatric centre, tuberculosis centre and all centres related to health service delivery. We want pregnant women, children to have access to health hence this centre.
“We want to make this to be another UCH, so to speak, whereby everything here is integrated. We must complete it in the next three to six months, at most, and we will open it, just like all the projects we are doing.
“We will work till we leave the office because that is what we are voted for. We were not elected for seven years but for eight years of service delivery. We are not a government that relaxes when it is one year left of its administration,” Ajimobi said.
Ajimobi was accompanied on the visit by Commissioner for Health, Dr Azeez Adeduntan; Permanent Secretary, Dr Oluwayemisi Iyiola; members of the state executive council; members of the State Hospitals Management Board, among others.
