All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for House of Representatives in Kosofe Local Government Area, Kafila Ogbara, has offered free medical outreach to her constituency.
Ogbara, who is vying for Kosofe federal constituency 1 seat at the forthcoming polls also unveiled a foundation, Ogbara Kafilat Foundation (OKF), which will cater for needs of people in her constituency.
Speaking during the event at Oworonshoki, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who was the special guest of honour, commended Ogbara for the initiative, and noted that his administration would continue to work with like-minded people in delivering quality healthcare service to Lagosians. Sanwo-Olu, who was represented on the occasion by his Commissioner for Health, Akin Abayomi, said the numbers of people in the state subscribing for Lagos Health Scheme, tagged: “Ilera Eko Health Insurance Scheme,” is increasing day by day but still encouraged residents of the state who were yet to subscribe to do so.
He said with less than N10,000 Lagosians who subscribed to Ilera Eko health Insurance Scheme could enjoyed quality healthcare service service for one year at any accredited hospital in the state.
Adding that issue of quality healthcare service for Lagosians is of the pillar of his T.H.M.E.S Agenda. While urging people at the grassroots to embrace the Ilera Eko Health Insurance Scheme, he said his administration introduced the programme to key into the scheme for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) that is affordable and convenient.
