100 patients benefit from Ekiti Govt free eye surgery

11 September 2012, 11:34

Ekiti - No fewer than 100 patients received free eye surgery at the Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH), Ado-Ekiti.

The state Commissioner for Health, Prof. Olusola Fasubaa, made this known at the Ophthalmology Centre of EKSUTH in Ado Ekiti on Monday.

Fasubaa said that the beneficiaries were treated during the 5th edition of Gov. Kayode Fayemi’s Free Health Mission in the state.

He explained that the free health mission was part of the efforts of the Fayemi-led administration to improve healthcare delivery enshrined in its eight-point agenda.

He urged the beneficiaries to justify the government’s huge spending by taking their drugs according to prescriptions and undergo regular medical check-up.

Dr Kola Adu, the state Director of Hospital Services, said that the free health mission was a continuous exercise, adding that the 6th edition would be held before the end of 2012.

Adu commended the efforts of members of staff of Ophthalmology Centre headed by Dr Olufunmilayo Fadamiro, for the success of the surgery.

Some beneficiaries like Mrs Fasola Funke, Ogundana Bamisaye, and Mrs Falade Grace, commended the State Government, for solving their health challenges.
