Sanwo-Olu & Wife Celebrate Eid-El-Kabir With Patients At Different Hospitals by postbox: 10:37am On Aug 01
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his wife, Ibijoke, on Friday visited the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, Broad Street and some other hospitals in different parts of the State, to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir with in-patients and health practitioners.

The Governor and his wife while at the various hospitals chatted with the patients and the medical personnel, cheering them up, encouraging them and also prayed for their recovery.
Speaking to journalists, Governor Sanwo-Olu said his unscheduled visit to Lagos Island Maternity, was to share Eid-el-Kabir moments with those in the hospital at a time when every other person is in joyous mood at home.

“It is really about the season. So, if you reflect, Eid-el-Kabir is about the season of love. It is about the season of remembering one another. So people are remembering Prophet Ibrahim; he slaughtered ram, which showed it is a season of giving.

“There are people on two sides, the medical officers on the frontline that are meant to be at work but more importantly are patients who for one reason or the other, cannot be with their loved ones,” he said.

Justifying his decision to pay an unscheduled visit to health practitioners and in-patients at the hospitals, Sanwo-Olu said: “I felt that this is the best place to come and show love; not just to see them but to encourage them and to give them little support from myself and my government.

“Coming here, we would also see things around ourselves. It is an unscheduled visit. So, we didn’t prompt anything. I saw them in their natural habit. You can see so many doctors and nurses are on duty and patients are also happy.

“We have also seen several patients; mothers that gave birth overnight to fresh newborn babies. So, it is just a season to come and thank God for them and their lives and for their families who are not here. For me, that is the most important thing.

“We all have to stay calm. It is a period we all need to understand that we need to stay calm and know that the government cares. We might not be ‘A Star’ but we have a good conscience. We have a good heart to do something good to almost everybody. I just want my citizens to see that if we have more resources, we will do a lot for them. This is just a simple way of saying thank you to everyone.”

Speaking on his response to a recent viral video of a boy begging his mother to calm down while punishing him for an offence he committed, Governor Sanwo-Olu said he believes strongly in paying attention and creating time to little things because there might be somebody somewhere who needs help.

He said: “You look at big things but you need to certainly create time for little things as well. That is the difference. You know, you are going to build a bridge and it is nice but you have somebody who is just somewhere who needs help.

“Just this morning (Friday), we rescued somebody who was planning to jump at the Third Mainland Bridge all because he said he has a debt of N500,000. We had to rescue him and we paid the debt. Those little details are what make the difference.

“I don’t have two heads, I don’t have 15 fingers. We are still the same human beings. So, we need to show that human part of us while we are not losing sight of the big picture. The big picture is that we want to build roads, bridges and new schools. But we also need to pay attention to the little one like the young boy on that video. By the way, I have spoken to him and his mother. They are doing great and I will see him one of these days very soon.”

Very impressive. This is who a leader is, not some Oluwo who decided to ride on a horse round his domain to display his level of insanity for all his subjects to be living witnesses to it.

Certainly it is more beneficial to visit the sick in the hospital, give alms to the poor, and do the works of charity than killing rams and eating rice during periods like this. Yesterday I saw the pictures of Buhari supervising the killing of rams and taking pictures with his family members; and not a single picture taken with or even one showing him meeting the poor.

thats good, hope they dropped alot of goodies for those patients especially the ones that had nobody to provide for them...
some people would say he prayed for them but atimes prayer isnt enough because even the pastors do eat after praying..
hospital isnt where anyone wana be because its filled with soo much touching stories and sadness...
back then whenever i feel sad and down with life, i would jus take a stroll to a nearby hospital to visit my doctor friend..
he would gist with me abt life, tell me many touching stories about people that have died and try to talk me up never to give up in life..
traveled to port Harcourt for a job interview that didn't went as planned and returned to Lagos after 2 months to hear that the same doctor died in a car accident..
that was the point that i stopped seeing the need for living..

Of course, it's possible, because they're different states.
