Japa Effect: LASG Tasks Residents on Collaboration at Apapa Hospital

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Government has stated that it will require citizen support to renew the Apapa General Hospital infrastructure and expand service delivery.

The Lagos state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, stated this on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ meeting at the hospital residence in Apapa, Lagos Mainland.

Abayomi, who was represented at the event by the Director of Service Charter at the Ministry of Health, Mrs. Joan Oluyemi, bemoaned the rate at which the health facility’s staff members were migrating.

He said, “To us, as a stakeholder, we believe that everybody’s life will be positively affected by our improvements in our services and we need your support and contribution towards achieving the project of renewing infrastructure and service expansion we want to embark upon.

“The government has done a lot in terms of infrastructure and staffing, but many of us understand the slogans now; a lot of our staff are migrating. But the government has opened a channel that we keep replacing the people that are leaving. We still don’t have enough, but we are working to ensure that our staff members are ready to serve.”

“We seek the general advice and generous contribution of residents to deliver on the task of providing quality healthcare to meet the minimum international standards as well as meeting the needs of residents because the government cannot do it alone,” said Dr. Ademuyiwa Eniayewun, who was represented by Dr. Yinka Otepola.

Dr. Ajibola Keshinro, Medical Director of Apapa General Hospital, stated in his address that the facility had overcome the challenges of three upgrades since its inception 58 years ago.
