Lagos LG poll: Chairmanship candidate promises to build 7 health centres, if elected

Mr Moyosore Ogunlewe, All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship candidate for Kosofe Local Government in Lagos State, has promised to build seven new Primary Health Centers (PHCs) within his first 100 days in office, if elected.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that elections were conducted into 20 local government and 37 Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) of Lagos State on Saturday.

Speaking with NAN on Saturday after casting his vote at Ward G, Unit 041, Ogudu Junior Grammar School, Ogudu GRA, Ogunlewe said his priority, if elected, would be security and healthcare delivery.

The APC candidate noted that Kosofe area lacked sufficient health centres to meet the healthcare needs of the local populace, adding that his administration would address the problem.

“There is a lot to be done; my priority is healthcare and security. I am already speaking to the banks to see how we can raise funds to build proper PHCs.

“We already have four PHCs but we are planning to have seven PHCs, three wards out of seven do not have PHCs and I think every Ward should have a PHC,” he said. (NAN)
