Akeredolu Commences Construction of World-Class Teaching Hospital in Akure

...Targets 500 Bed Medical Facility

The determination of the Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu administration to provide first-class health facilities for the people of Ondo State has taken another giant leap with the commencement of the construction of a modern world-class teaching hospital at the former State hospital in Akure, the state capital.

Already, the Critical Care Unit complex has been constructed and will be used as the temporary Accident and Emergency ward to allow for the demolition and construction of a two-storey complex at the current A & E building.

Similarly, a new building has been constructed for the Children Emergency ward, which was never in existence since the establishment of the hospital.
The Akeredolu administration has also began the reconstruction of a 16-year old abandoned structure at the hospital, which is projected to be used for surgical outpatience and stroke ward.

Addressing Journalists after inspecting the ongoing construction at the facility, Governor Akeredolu said his administration is upgrading the health facility from a 150-bed to a 300-bed hospital.

Arakunrin Akeredolu also hinted that he has given a directive that houses very close to the hospital should be valued, as his administration is ready to acquire the buildings and compensate the owners.

He said apart from the fact that it is very dangerous living very close to a hospital, the acquisition will enable government to expand the facility and build a modern world-class Teaching hospital.

Akeredolu said:”All of us have toured this facility and I’m sure you remember what we met on ground here . Since we came on board ,things have changed here including the road network and a number of buildings here have been renovated, but we have just started

“The important thing is that we are building a new medical ward, a two-storey building and it will be so big. Very soon, by next month the frontage will go down and it will allow for a modern medical world-class facility here.
“It is taking us a lot to arrive at making this place a world-class teaching hospital . We know that the University of Medical Sciences needed to have a befitting hospital . Instead of building new ones or concentrating in one area, we decided to have a multi-sector hospital.

“This place used to be a 150-bed hospital and it will be 300-bed when we complete it.
"I have looked at the buildings that are too close to the hospital and I have asked that they should be valued so that we can acquire them and compensate the owners .

”Our target is to have a 500-bed teaching hospital . A number of buildings around will have to go and we will pay compensation and expand the hospital to make it big.”

El Chapo is a Mexican. Some Mexicans are drug barons - but that doesn't mean Mexicans or their president will tolerate it when anyone talks down on ALL Mexicans.

I can't understand this feeble minded inferiority complex from some Nigerians

It's actually a thing of joy to see how custodians of state funds make effort to do something for the real owners of the funds, though not ruling out the fact that Nigerian factors like kick-backs must always be there in favour of the custodians. But the most important is that at least 70% goes to the real owners. Thank God for the Federal APC-led administration. 

God bless gov Oluwarotimi Akeredolu
God bless Ondo state
God bless PMB/APC
God bless Nigerians 
Long live the fed rep of nig. 

However, for sure, pessimistic miscreants, especially from that side who get erection only from sad news, will not hesitate to start digging out some past "ugly" records of Akeredolu all to upturn the purpose of this report and ultimately get the desired erection.

Good job.
Make next governor no abandon the teaching hospital.

Imo state established a teaching hospital 18 years ago.
But it's outside state capital.

State capital people in alliance with Ohakim and Okorocha crushed the teaching hospital. State capital people say everything development must be in state capital - or die.
Imo is a state which needs God's attention.
