Oyo state government has announced August 3rd as a schedule date for the launching of fifty billion naira health endowment fund. This was disclosed by the commissioner for health, Dr. Azeez Adeduntan at a press conference held at the state secretariat. The commissioner for health explained that the endowment would help revamp the state health sector and provide adequate health infrastructures for the well being of Oyo state citizenry while noting that government alone cannot do all.
The consultant in charge of managing the endowment fund, Dr. Bola Olaosebikan while reeling out all the possible benefits the endowment fund would facilitate, noted that Oyo state would be the first state in Nigeria to commence the lofty initiative. Shedding more light on the endowment fund, commissioner for information, culture and tourism, Mr. Toye Arulogun said the initiative was in line with Governor Abiola Ajimobi's concern at repositioning the state health sector to forestall cases of medical tourism.
