DESPITE the dearth of medical personnel across the country, an egregious shortage of one doctor per 8000 Nigerians, Ondo State governor, Olusegun Mimiko has said the state was poised to salvage the health sector with its giant strides and initiatives in the country.

Mimiko made this promise in Lagos when receiving the honorary fellowship award conferred on him by National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria, during its 32rd convocation ceremony.

He attributed the laudable achievements in the health sector of the state to the vision he had on delivering better health care to the people and the indefatigable efforts of other people in the sector who believe in his dream.

“I stand here before you, a humble recipient of this Award of Honorary Fellowship of the National Medical College bestowed as a result of what the College described as the “monumental achievements in the health sector (of Ondo State) over the last six years” of our
administration.

“I thank the Governing Board for considering me worthy of this prestigious award as I consider whatever my team and I have done to improve the lot of our people as being modest in scope,” he said.
