An NGO, Olu Kosoko Foundation, on Friday collaborated with Rotary Club of Eko Atlantic to provide free medical service for residents of Badagry, Lagos State.
Founder of the NGO, Olu Kosoko, said that the foundation would provide free consultation and medications to more than 1,000 people in Badagry.

“We understand the limited access to health care and medical challenges we have in Badagry.
“Our health sector in Badagry have been grossly challenged with limited medical centres in rural communities, inadequate health facilities and medication,” Kosoko said.
He commended Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the recent completion of Maternal and Child Care (MCC) centre at Badagry General Hospital.Also speaking, Mr. Vinod Kaurani, President, Rotary Club of Eko Atlantic, said the club was always ready to assist people with free medical service.
Kaurani said that the medical team comprised of three doctors and many nurses to attend to residents during the two days free medical mission.
He commended the residents for turning out in large numbers to receive the service. The Oniworo of Iworo, Oba Oladele Kosoko, urged residents of Badagry to always find time to take care of their health.
He commended the foundation and Rotary Club for giving free medical services to his people. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Chairman of Badagry Local Government, Mr. Olusegun Onilude, and three traditional rulers were among residents who benefited from the exercise. The two days free medical service will continue at Mosafejo Town Hall, Aradagun, near Badagry on Saturday. (NAN)
