NANS lauds Oyetola for reviving Osun health sector

The Aare Ona Kankanfo of Yoruba Land and National Coordinator of Yoruba militia organisation, Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Chief Ganiyu Adams, has distanced the OPC from the Mega Accord, 57 civil society groups rooting for South West pro-restructuring presidential candidate in 2023.

He also warned those behind the group to stop using the name of OPC for petty political mileage, declaring that he has nothing to do with the groups.

The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Dr. Olu Agunloye, had, on Sunday, distanced the party from the group, saying neither himself nor the party executive had anything to do with any mega political group.

In a statement, the Publicity Secretary of OPC, Yinka Oguntimehin, denied the involvement of the Adams-led OPC in the Mega Accord.

The statement reads: “OPC was not among the 57 Yoruba groups that met in Lagos at the weekend to mobilise the South West support for APC national leader, Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo or Governor Kayode Fayemi for the 2023 presidency.

MEANWHILE, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Zone D, has lauded Osun State Governor, Adeogboyega Oyetola, for reviving the state’s health sector.

In a statement, yesterday, in Ibadan, the South West Coordinator of NANS, Adegboye Olatunji, expressed satisfaction with Oyetola for providing quality and affordable healthcare to the people of the state.

NANS noted: “The World Health Organisation (WHO), on December 30, 2021, stated that Osun has become a pacesetter in the provision of qualitative, functional and affordable health care. Osun has been leading the way in repositioning the health sector in Nigeria as demonstrated by the giant strides the state had taken to revive and redefine healthcare in the state.

“The WHO representative to Nigeria, Dr. Walter Kadazi, said these when he led other officials of the organisation to visit the governor at his office at State Government Secretariat, Abere, Osogbo.”

Olatunji also commended Osun Commissioner for Health, Rafiu Isamotu, for his relentless effort in providing a remarkable global leadership in the effective management of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), and the state government for the Mass Vaccination campaign.
