This commitment was emphasized by the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Tunji Alausa, during the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Federal Government and the Ekiti State Government. The agreement aims to upgrade the Ikole Specialist Hospital to a Federal Medical Centre.

Dr. Alausa highlighted the significant progress made by the Federal Government in implementing robust health reforms and policies to ensure that Nigerians have unrestricted access to quality healthcare services.

The transformation of the Ikole specialist hospital into a Federal Medical Centre is a testament to President Tinubu’s unwavering commitment to providing every Nigerian with access to comprehensive and high-quality healthcare.

This move aligns with the Federal Government’s agenda to decentralize healthcare delivery, making it more accessible even in remote communities across the country.

The Minister emphasized that the upgraded facilities will be equipped to offer a wide range of comprehensive healthcare services, along with quality training and cutting-edge research opportunities.

Commending Governor Biodun Oyebanji for his decision to hand over the State specialist hospital, Dr. Alausa stated that this act signifies the government’s dedication to improving healthcare infrastructure and services for the people of Ekiti.

He emphasized that the transfer of these facilities goes beyond the mere exchange of assets; it represents the transfer of hope and a brighter future for the people of Ekiti, contributing to the overall enhancement of the national healthcare system.
