Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has regretted how the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic scuttled his plans to renovate 236 primary health care centres in the state.

According to Gov Abiodun, the COVID-19 pandemic was a surprise to him because it happened just as he was beginning to roll out plans to reform the state’s health facilities, which he said would begin with the 236 primary health care centres.

“This pandemic is a surprise to everybody. This happened just as we were beginning to roll out plans for total reform of our health facilities beginning with 236 Primary Health Care Centres,”

Abiodun said.

NAIJALOADED reports that Abiodun, after his inauguration, promised to renovate or build at least, one health care centre in each of the 236 wards of Ogun within his first 100 days in office.

He came under heavy criticisms when he was not able to fulfill the promise in his first 100 days as the governor of the Gateway state.

By May 29, 2020, Abiodun would have completed his first year as the governor of Ogun.

Speaking during a meeting with representatives of health workers in the state at his Office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Abiodun said “prior to the out break of COVID-19 pandemic, rehabilitation of hospitals had commenced with 236 Primary Health Care Centres across the State.”

The meeting was coming on the heels of a three-day warning strike declared by resident doctors at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH) on Sunday.

At the meeting, Abiodun appealed to the health officers not to allow issues degenerate, asking them to keep communication open with his government.

In a statement made available to our correspondent on Saturday, Abiodun promised the state health workers that his administration will put in place life insurance policy for them, while also reviewing their hazard allowance from 200 to 300 percent.

“I want to inform you that we have put in place life policy for our health workers. We would have started immediately, but we will wait to go along with the Federal government which is also planning similar programme”,

He said.
