Institute trains personnel to boost healthcare delivery system in Nigeria
Lagos State College of Health Technology has said it is set to empower qualified and dedicated health personnel to boost healthcare delivery system in Nigeria.
Provost of the institute, Dr. Moyo Kasim, stated this while addressing over 700 matriculating students in Yaba Lagos, urging them to be good ambassadors of the institute, excel and become ambassadors of the institution throughout the training and in their future endeavours.
Kasim appreciated Lagos State Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo -Olu for his commitment to total transformation of health institutions and making Lagos Education a 21st century compliance with emphasis on science and technology.
ALSO, Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, said: “Education and Technology is the third pillar of the six development agenda of this administration.”
Wahab, represented by Mr. Adeniran Kasali (Permanent Secretary), advised the students to be studious, well-behaved, focused and self-disciplined so that government’s huge investment in education would not be a waste.
He urged them to always be conscious of the need to justify the confidence reposed in them by the state government and the society at large by shunning clandestine activities, such as cultism, thuggery, drug abuse, raping, kidnapping and other vices capable of derailing them from achieving the goals of education.
Permanent Secretary, Parastatals Monitoring Office, Mr. Toyin Oke-Osanyintolu, described the college as a premier destination for excellent learning.
She charged the students to consider themselves as part of the change-agent expected to bring a robust development to the nation’s healthcare delivery system.
Oke-Osanyintolu also advised the students to be more focused and driven by passion throughout their educational pursuit.
