Onalaja assures of timely completion of 2021/22 Star Project

The Change Maker President, Rotary Club of Maryland, Rotarian Bamidele Onalaja has given assurances that the Amuwo Odofin Child and Maternal Health Centre being built in Amuwo by Rotary Club of Maryland will be completed in a record time.

Onalaja spoke in Amuwo on Friday, July 9 2021, at the groundbreaking ceremony of the Child and Maternal Health Centre which is the club’s star project for the 2021/22 Rotary Year.

The Amuwo Odofin Child and Maternal Health Centre is estimated to gulp about N70m and when completed, the ultra-modern and well-equipped centre will improve access to essential medical services on issues of child and maternal health, make provision for community health professionals and assist with a financial support base for advanced training in maternal care.

Giving a background into how the idea of the health centre was conceived, Onalaja, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of RevolutionPlus Group, told the gathering that he was, shortly before the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, opportune to chair a programme organised by nurses in Lagos State, at the invitation of the Apex Nurse, Mrs. Victoria Oyegun and that with the wives of the Governor and Deputy Governor in attendance, the management of the hospital met him after the programme and highlighted their challenges which included lack of adequate facilities and over dependence on the available ones.

Onalaja said after he met with the Chief Medical Director, Rtn. Dr. Soyinka who was equally excited at the plan by his Chris Bamidele Onalaja Foundation to build the Child and Maternal Health Centre and that on assumption of office as President of the club, he decided to adopt it as the star project for his year saying CBOF will work with Rotary Club of Maryland, Ikeja Lagos to actualise the project.

In attendance at the ground breaking ceremony were the District Governor, Rtn. Remi Bello, members of Rotary Club of Maryland, Ikeja and top management staff of the hospital.
