Makinde To Build 3 PHCs in 351 Wards Soon


The Governor of Oyo State, Engineer Seyi Makinde has promised to build 3 Primary Health Centres in all the 351 wards in Oyo state which will be accomplished in the shortest period of time.

Makinde who made this position during the inauguration of the two additional commissioners in the State. He noted, however, that the government would consolidate the achievements by completing key projects such as the final phase of the 351 Primary Health Centres and the second phase of the remodelled Lekan Salami Sports Complex, Adamasingba, Ibadan.

He said: “This swearing-in is a ceremony but your work is not ceremonious. As you are aware, health is one of the pillars of this administration. Under Omituntun 1.0, we worked towards resolving the issue of the infrastructure deficit in our healthcare system. Well, I can say we sorted that problem up to about 50 to 60 per cent. But there is more to be done.

“So, I expect that our new Commissioner for Health will take the bull by the horns.

“As I said during the stakeholders’ meeting on the 2024 Budget, which was held last Monday, we have the money to build Category 3 Primary Health Centres in all our 351 wards. This is the reality we want to see accomplished in the shortest possible time.

“Well, the work we have to do is there. If you look at the Oyo State Road Map for Sustainable Development, 2023 -2027, you will also see promises that we have made there.

“By the way, I expect all members of the cabinet to read the document and assimilate the promises there as the minimum we will be doing for our people.”
