The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, on Saturday
pledged to furnish the newly built clinic of the National Youth
Service Corps (NYSC) orientation camp in Ede, Osun.
Adewole, who was in company with Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola,
the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate,
said he was determined to ensure that the clinic was the best in
the country.
“When I received a call from an NYSC official that the scheme
needed drugs in Osun, I told her not to worry that I know
someone I can call.
“To me the scheme is an instrument of national unity and I will
continue to support it.
“I want to thank Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola who did not think
twice before agreeing to support you with the needed drugs.
“I must augment what he has done, I haven’t been here, I want
to assure you that between LAUTECH, between the
commissioner and myself, we will furnish this clinic.
“We will give you your tables, your chairs and waiting bench so
that you can start functioning properly.
“I want to make this clinic the best in the country and I want to
tell you also that the president personally directed that we
should all enlist you into the Health Insurance Scheme and we
are working on this.
“The NHIS issue is being sorted out between the Ministry of
Youths and Sports Development and Ministry of Health and we
are going to get it done quickly so that every youth corps
member is really provided for.” he said
Oyetola, who was the former Chief of Staff to Gov. Rauf
Aregbesola, commended the NYSC for building the clinic and
also making it available for public use.
He said the minister had informed him that the NYSC needed
drugs and he had responded appropriately as someone who
was concerned about effective healthcare delivery.
Oyetola commended the NYSC for building the clinic, saying it
was in line with its corporate social responsibility.
The State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mr Emmanuel Attah,
thanked the minister and the APC candidate for their support of
the scheme.
Attah said the new clinic was the outcome of the collaboration
between staff of the NYSC and other stakeholders.
He said the camp was the first in the country to have a bakery
and garri processing plant, adding that efforts were being made
to ensure that the facility was the best in the country.
