The General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Adeboye, has commended the Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), for establishing health centres where beneficiaries have been receiving free drugs and treatment.
Speaking Tuesday at the RCCG Headquarters, Ebute-Metta on his monthly special programme coming up on Sunday, April 7, 2013 when he would be praying for pregnant women and expecting mothers at the Throne of Grace, 1-9, Redemption Way, formerly Cemetery Street, Ebute-Metta (East), Lagos, Adeboye gave kudos to Fashola for his attention on health care as a demonstration of his commitment to good living of citizens in Lagos.
“Fashola has been trying and needs to be appreciated. I am encouraging him to try more by increasing the number of health centres to meet up with the demand of health delivery,” he said.
The cleric, who spoke through the Assistant Pastor in charge of Social Responsibility, Goke Aniyeloye, said there is need for Fashola to encourage establishment of more maternity homes by issuing licences to qualified individuals so that the state can have more maternity centres to meet up with the demand of the people.
Adeboye added that with the realisation that the government cannot do it alone, RCCG in various provinces have a lot of maternity centres which offer free medical services and delivery.
