The Kwara State Ministry of Health has meticulously outlined the operational guidelines for the programme, which will cover all 16 Local Government Areas of the State. The programme kicks off on Thursday, September 28, 2023, at the General Hospital, Erin-Ile, in Oyun Local Government.

Therefore, I implore every citizen to seize this golden opportunity to prioritise their health, as health is wealth."

She added, "This is just the beginning, as there is much more to come from this administration for the good people of Kwara State as a dividend of democracy."

The free surgery programme includes medical and eye screenings, medical treatments, surgical services for common ailments, and operable eye diseases such as hernias, lipomas, cataracts, and pterygium. Reading glasses will also be distributed if necessary.

Hon. Olukoju calls on all Kwarans to actively participate in this vital healthcare programme, ultimately contributing to the state's collective well-being and prosperity.
