Akinwumi Ambode’s 100 days in office
Continued from last Monday
This has been evident during inspection visits, where the governor gives room to each stakeholder to brief the press
This, he believes, will instill confidence in every member of the team and make them responsible for their various jurisdiction. For him, his administration is not a one-man-show, but would require collective effort to drive Lagos to prosperity.
Reviving primary education
The saying, “catch them young” is one Ambode firmly believes in. Thus it was not surprising when he approved that 2000 qualified teachers be recruited to teach in the state’s primary schools.
The Health sector is already getting serious attention from the present administration. On Monday, August 31, Governor Ambode commissioned 20 Mobile Care Units Ambulances and 26 Transport Ambulances expected to be deployed across the various General Hospitals and 24 hour primary healthcare centres in the state.
He however didn’t stop there. He approved the purchase of generators and x-ray machines to all general hospitals in the state to ensure that 24 hour power supply is not compromised, while cost incurred by patients in carrying out x-ray is reduced, all in an effort to upgrade the General Hospitals.
The governor has also given approval for the recruitment of more paramedic staff and special medical coordinators to ensure 24 hours service to the citizens as well as embark on the construction of a Medical Park.
