Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, weekend, underwent a diagnostic check at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, just as he urged Nigerians to use facilities available in the country for treatment instead of seeking such treatments abroad.
In an interview with newsmen after the checks, Governor Fashola said he decided to use the facility available at the hospital to check on the sports injury he picked up a few weeks back because, having commissioned it a few months ago, he was confident that he would get the best treatment.
â€œA few months ago, I commissioned this facility as one of the best facilities in the country and I thought I should use it instead of going outside the country,â€ the Governor said.
He said the state government has always put everything it has into delivering the best services to the people of Lagos adding, â€œI believe in what we have done here and the quality of what we have invested here and I feel happy.â€
On hand to receive Governor Fashola on his arrival at the hospital were the Chief Medical Director (CMD), Dr. Femi Olugbile and the Chairman of the Governing Board of LASUTH, Dr. Nurudeen Olowopopo as well as the Consultant in charge of LASEMS, Dr. Mustapha.
