“We welcome community participation, especially in infrastructural upgrade and equipment upgrade.”

The Chairman went on to explain that the state government is currently in the process of employing new health workers across 34 cadres, which will help to address the shortage of personnel in the healthcare system.

“I want to assure you that the donated items will be judiciously used, and I once again express my heartfelt gratitude to the Ibadan Descendants Development Union in Canada for this kind gesture,” said Dr. Fagbemi.

The event was well-received by the hospital’s management and staff, who expressed their appreciation for the generous donation and praised the community’s effort in supporting the health sector.
