Ogun State’s governor, Dapo Abiodun, has declared that the state lacks the buoyancy necessary to operate the hospital, which Senator Ibikunle Amosun, his predecessor, built, with a capacity of 250 beds.

At the State Council of Obas’ Statutory Meeting, which took place at the Oba’s Complex in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Abiodun made this statement.

The hospital was reportedly eighty percent finished when it was turned over by the Amosun government, according to the Janescope.

At that point, in May 2019, former President Muhammadu Buhari officially opened the facility.

The Abiodun-led government was unable to proceed with the hospital’s development and operation due to incapacitation.

The hospital’s grounds are now under the control of bushes.

However, Abiodun stated, the state administration has finalized preparations to turn over the 250-bed hospital to a medical company and Afrexim Bank.

Abiodun pointed out that the state must pay N300 million a month in wages to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, or OOUTH.

The 250-bed hospital memorandum of understanding will be signed right here in Abeokuta, he declared.

We acknowledge that the state will not be able to manage such facility because, at the moment, the salary alone at our tertiary hospital, OOUTH, costs the state almost N300 million a month. We recognize that the state is not equipped to manage the hospital in the most effective manner.

“Based on our observations and actions, the facility will draw medical tourists if it is managed well.

“Therefore, the state has approved a model wherein we will be the property’s landlords and others should come and take the concession and manage it in a professional manner.”

“We will execute the Memorandum of Understanding with Afrexim Bank and the medical group that has committed to take over that hospital, finish it, and professionally operationalize it before the end of the year.”
