The leader of the group Isa Ahmed, while addressing a press conference in Kaduna on Wednesday morning, explained that so far, over 6,000 Kwarans, young and old have benefitted from the free medical outreach since 2020.
“As stakeholders and socioeconomic group, our survey has indicated that the Kwara state government is doing excellently well in the health sector,” Ahmed said while addressing the press.
The group however noted that the state government can still do better in the health sector following it importance to the people.
“Providing social health protection and equal access to quality health care has significant positive effects on individual and public health, economic growth and development. The health sector is also a major employment sector, with important potential in job creation. These being the reason why other Governors must emulate Gov. AbdulRasaq’s example in the health sector,” the group emphasised.
