Oyetola’s Health Programme Benefits 160 Persons

Many residents of Osogbo and Iwo yesterday commended the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September 22 governorship election in Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, after benefitting from his free surgery project. About 160 patients have had lumps removed from various parts of their bodies and cataract from their eyes in the two cities since Monday. The patients were treated under the Ilerioluwa Free Health Mission, which was brought to the state by Oyetola of which his campaign is themed: Ilerioluwa. 100 patients were operated on at the General Hospital Iwo yesterday and 60 patients have had cataract removed from their eyes at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, Osogbo since Monday. They are part of the over 10,000 people that have been treated free under the project. At Iwo, many of the beneficiaries showered praises on Oyetola for coming to their aid. One of them, Mrs Risikat Amoo, who had a lump removed from her breast, showered praises on the APC candidate for rescuing her from the dangerous health condition. She had been living with the lump for years due to inability to raise the funds for the treatment. She explained that her entire household would be eternally grateful to Oyetola and members of the medical team for bringing smiles to their faces again in Iwo. At the teaching hospital in Osogbo, over 20 people have had free cataract surgery daily, restoring their original sight. The benefactors prayed God to give him sound vision physically and spiritually as he hopefully takes over the mantle of leadership of the state in November. The Chief Operating Officer of the free surgery project, Dr Isiaka Adekunle, expressed satisfaction with his team’s performance and the enthusiasm of residents of Iwo. “It has been a fantastic experience so far. People are responding with great enthusiasm. They are also so appreciative of our work. When we see the joy on their faces after the surgery, we cannot but be happy for being part of this project that is impacting positively on the poor people in the society. It is the reason some other medical professionals have joined us willingly,” Adekunle said. The Commissioner for Health in the state, Dr Rafiu Isamotu, who also visited the team at the hospital in Iwo, expressed gratitude to the medics on behalf of the APC candidate. He said the charity efforts were well recognized. Source: New Telegraph
