His words, "Let me, first of all, congratulate the winners today, however, I must also reiterate that you should rededicate yourselves to duty because to whom much is given, much is expected. For those who did not win today. You must take heart and hope that it would be your turn next time as the State Government intends to hold the event periodically as well as expand its scope based on the availability of funds”.
The Head of Service averred that the choice of the use of e-ballot was to give every substantive Director equal opportunity in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Administration.
Permanent Secretary, Mrs Sunkanmi Oyegbola stated that the process streamed live on Twitter and Facebook was transparent, adding that winners would be verified to ensure eligibility.

LAGOS ASSEMBLY ADOPTS RECOMMENDATION ON PROPOSED TERTIARY HOSPITALS ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

img 20230123 wa00049120634381221826064 Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday adopted recommendations of its Committee on Health Services for the proposed upgrade of some general hospitals to tertiary health institutions.
Five general hospitals may benefit from the planned upgrade with the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Mudashiru Obasa, saying secondary health centres like the ones in Badagry and Ikorodu established since the 1950s should benefit.
The resolution was made after a deliberation on the report submitted by the Chairman, House Committee on Health Services, Hon. Olusola Sokunle.
In the report, the Chairman said that the committee went on a fact-finding mission to the general hospitals across the state to know the suitable hospitals that could be upgraded to tertiary institutions.
Sokunle said upgrading the general hospitals would reduce the pressure on the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).
His committee also recommended the establishment of renal and neurological departments in the proposed upgraded hospitals.
The committee further recommended the overhauling of the Primary Health Centres (PHCs) by the state government with the local governments intensifying awareness and sensitisation about the usefulness of the centres.
According to Sokunle, land mass, high tech equipment and quality of medical personnel were part of the considerations by the committee.
Debating the report, Hon. Wahab Jimoh (Apapa 2), observed that there was need to consider other general hospitals within the Lagos Island Division, saying that general hospitals within the Lagos Mainland axis should be considered.
The Chief Whip, Hon. Mojisola Meirada (Apapa 1), argued that aside the establishment of renal departments in the upgraded general hospitals, there should be trauma and bone departments in each of them.
She said this would help in reducing the pressure on the Gbagada hospital trauma facility.
In his contribution, Hon. Moshood Oshun ( Lagos Mainland 2), made case for the establishment of more general hospitals across the state instead of converting five hospitals to tertiary health facilities.
However, the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Mudashiru Obasa, said that there was need to sustain the glory of the five general hospitals by upgrading them to tertiary health institutions.
Obasa said there was a need to create synergy among general hospitals adding that there must be regular sensitisation to make Primary Healthcare Centres more functional.
The Speaker further suggested the need for effective data collation for adequate information that could help determine if a Renal Specialist Hospital should be established.

LAGOS COMMENCES FREE SCHOOL-BASED MASS DEWORMING EXERCISE, TARGETS 1.3 MILLION SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN IN 10 LGAs ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

88877678iiio1288615974617323431 Lagos State Government today commenced a free school-based deworming exercise to treat Soil-Transmitted Helminthiasis (STH), targeting 1.3 million school-age children between the ages of five and 14 years who are at risk of parasitic worm infections in the State.
The exercise which is being implemented in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Health and a non-governmental organisation, Evidence Action, holds in 10 soil-transmitted helminthiasis endemic Local Governments, namely: Ajeromi/Ifelodun, Amuwo-Odofin, Apapa, Badagry, Epe, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland, Ojo and Shomolu.
Speaking on the modalities for the implementation of the exercise, the State Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi disclosed that the five-day exercise will commence from Tuesday, 22nd to Saturday, 26th November 2022.
He added that children, aged five and 14 years, in schools and communities in the 10 LGAs will be dewormed and treated for soil-transmitted helminthiasis using Albendazole Tablets.
Abayomi disclosed that more than 1.5 billion people, representing 24% of the world’s population, are infected with soil-transmitted helminth infections, adding that over 875 million of this population are children.
He explained that Nigeria has the second-largest population of infected children worldwide with a prevalence of about 29 million cases, bringing to the fore the need to put in place strategies to treat and eliminate soil-transmitted helminth and schistosomiasis infections.
The Commissioner noted that School-age children are particularly vulnerable and most at risk, stressing that the infection poses a serious threat to children’s health, education, and economic potential as school-age children harbour the highest intensity of infection by soil-transmitted helminths.
Abayomi noted that school-based deworming is an important evidence-based strategy to treat children at risk of parasitic worm infections, adding that teachers and community health workers have been trained to safely and effectively administer the medicines to the children. While urging residents in the affected LGAs to take advantage of exercise, the Commissioner noted that the exercise reflects the State Government’s commitment towards a worm-free State for all, especially for school-age children. Also speaking, the South-West Programme Manager, Evidence Action, Maryann Edeh, who represented the Director of West and Central Africa, noted that the school-based deworming programme is an effective and cost-effective strategy to ensure that the diseases disrupting the educational growth of children are treated.
She explained that Evidence Action has over the years lent supporting hands to assist governments across the world in the organisation of various programmes, stressing that the organisation is currently targeting the deworming of over 1.3 million school children in Lagos. She, however, added that the deworming exercise is not limited to children in school alone.
Edeh, therefore, encouraged parents residing in the affected LGAs where the exercise is being held to ensure that their children and wards within the target age bracket receive deworming treatment, noting that the treatment is free and effective.
