Osun Lawmaker-Elect Seeks Health Intervention



L-R: House of Assembly Member-Elect for Obokun State Constituency of Osun, Mr. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye; Chief Matron, Obokun Comprehensive Health Centre, Mrs. Yemisi Babatunde; and Chairman, Cedio Rural Medical Outreach Ministry, Captain Yakubu Okatahi, during Oyintiloye’s visit to the operation centre of Medical Outreach at Obokun Comprehensive Health Centre, Osun State … on Wednesday.

Osun State House of Assembly member-elect from Obokun State Constituency, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, has called on people of his constituency and the state in general to plough back to the society through interventions to assist the government.

He made the call during his recent visit to the operation centre of the free medical treatment and surgical operations for over 200 beneficiaries, which was organised by Cedio Rural Medical Outreach Ministry, Lagos, and held at Ibokun Comprehensive Health Centre, Ibokun.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Oyintiloye said the interventions had gone a long way in reducing the health challenges faced by the people and lifted burden on him as the representative of the people in government.

He said such interventions, especially on health, would assist government to actualize its programmes by attending to do other areas.

Oyintiloye said, “There is no way government can do everything but interventions like this from well-meaning Nigerians will go a long way to assist the people.

“The present administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola is doing so much on health to make our people live healthy in spite of limited resource, but medical intervention is a plus to what the government is doing.

“The belief of the government is that all the efforts of the administration to develop the economy through empowerment of people, education and other areas will be meaningless if people are not healthy.

“We call on the people not to leave everything to government, as their support in all areas of governance, no matter how small would go a long way to make the society better.”

Commending the sponsor of the medical outreach for their commitment to the healthy living of the people, the lawmaker-elect said he would continue to support and embrace such similar supports from whoever offers it.

He also appealed to the outreach to replicate similar intervention in no distant time in his constituency to relieve other people suffering from various diseases.
