- The beneficiaries appealed to that the program should be a continuous exercise to reach a wider spectrum of people.
The Alara of Ilara Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr Olufolarin Ogunsanwo, Telade IV, and other dignitaries present at the free medical outreach organised by BOSKOH HMI LAGOS/JIGI BOLA RELAUNCH have lauded the former Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his continuous investment in the development of Lagos State despite having left office a decade and a half ago.
Alara, whose throne predates the 14th century, spoke in an interview with Eko Hot Blog at his royal palace on Monday 12th July 2021, where he stated that he was positively thrilled at the synergy which exists amongst the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the present Governor of Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr Kadiri Obafemi Hamzat. Oba Ogunsanwo also noted that the program will be of immense benefit to his people.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a leader of leaders, passionate, generous and kind-hearted. Even many years after he has left the Government, he believes that our people must still enjoy good health and a sound mind. He has continued to sponsor this program for the benefit of the masses. It is not because he wants to contest for the Presidency in 2023 but as a passionate leader, a leader that many people want to emulate, we appreciate him for his generosity.”
“The medical outreach is being brought to provide succour to our people and they always say health is wealth. It involves the checking of eyes, the ear, the teeth, blood level check as well as sugar level check. There is also a desk for those that might be diagnosed for tuberculosis as well as screening people for AIDS, all these are to make sure our people are in good health,” he stated.
In the same vein, Hon Adeniyi Saliu, the Executive Chairman of Eredo LCDA, Hon Adeniyi Saliu, having thanked the organisers of the program for reaching out to the people of Eredo LCDA, said the exercise has saved his people the cost of medical check-ups and drugs.
“We commend our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dr Obafemi Hamzat for doing this and meeting a lot of their campaign promises. asiwaju has done this forever, I think it is the commitment that he has for the people that he has continued to deliver on. Jigi Bola is a popular program a lot of people have benefitted and now that it has been resuscitated, we don’t have anything but appreciation for him,” he said.
His Royal Majesty, Oba Builder Babatunde Asunmo Ganiu Aderibigbe, FLB, the Alayandelu and Paramount Ruler of Odo-Ayandelu Kingdom, Ikosi-Ejinrin LCDA Lagos State, who was also full of praise for Governor Sanwo-Olu and his progenitor, said he would key into the initiative by taking full advantage of the free medical outreach to polish his health status.
“I’ll appreciate the sponsors especially Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the wife and the present Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu. The man is good, he likes his people and that is why he always reach out to us. I wish him well, come 2023, we want him to become the next President of Nigeria because he knows the problem of the masses and he can solve it and that is why we the Ijebu traditional rulers in Lagos State have endorsed him. If the North still wants the Unity of Nigeria, they should zone the Presidency to the South,” he stated.
The event had other Eredo LCDA traditional rulers in attendance such as Oba Kolawole Aliru, the Alade Uraka of Poka, HRM Oba Onakoya Gbadebo, the Orijeru of Igbooye, HRM Oba Ogunnukan, the Adegbajo of Odo-Gbawojo and HRM Oba Adefowora Adegboyega, the Alaketu of Ketu, also had the Eredo LCDA Management team, Baales and Chiefs in attendance.

They appealed to opulent individuals to take it upon themselves to collaborate with the Government in making sure the people, especially those in rural communities, are reached out to not only in medical programmes but other viable socio-economic interventions.
Earlier, some of the beneficiaries of the free medical mission appreciated the sponsors for bringing the health programme to their doorstep. They, however, appealed to that the program should be a continuous exercise to reach a wider spectrum of beneficiaries.
