Barely one week after the presentation of the Best Service Charter Compliant award on the Ikorodu General Hospital, a prominent community leader and former Commissioner for Information in Lagos State, Otunba Ayodele Elesho has declared that the good people of Ikorodu are satisfied with the achievements of the Hospital Management, led by a son of the soil and MD of the secondary health institution, Dr Taiwo K. Hassan.
Elesho, who is also the Agba Akin of Ikorodu made the declaration in Ikorodu on an Ikorodu based social media platform.
His statement has been reproduced below;
The good people of Ikorodu are happy with the latest achievements of the General Hospital Ikorodu, under the fantastic Administration & Leadership of Dr Taiwo Hassan, the Medical Director & Chief Executive of the Hospital.
Within a space of few years, Dr Taiwo Hassan has positively turned around the services of all the departments, Sections and Units of the Hospital for excellent and adequate service delivery.
The latest Award for the Hospital by the Lagos State Government owned Office of Transformation, Creativity & Innovation as the best Best Compliant Hospital on Service Charter Demands for year 2022, as well as, our own Dr Taiwo Hassan who was adjudged as the best Charter Service Director for the period 2014 – 2022.
These are giant strides & great achievements in the history of General Hospital, lkorodu since it was established in 1983 by late Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande, the then Governor of Lagos State.
With the unparalleled achievements of the Management of the Hospital & the level it has attained, it is high time the State Government should proclaim & elevate the Hospital to become a TEACHING HOSPITAL, moreso that lkorodu is now a University town, with the new Lagos State University of Science & Technology (LASUSTECH) main Campus here in lkorodu.
I therefore join Kabiyesi Ayangbure, Oba Kabiru Adewale Shotobi and the good people of Ikorodu to congratulate the Management of the Hospital and pray for more excellent groundbreaking achievements and more wins.
SIR (Otunba) Ayodele Elesho, KJW
AGBA AKIN of Ikorodu Kingdom.
