Ogun State Government has offered to enroll a new set of triplets and their mother on the State’s Health Insurance Scheme to aid their seamless access to quality healthcare.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker disclosed this during her visit to the Agbetu- Ile Nla home of the triplet- a boy and two girls, who were born on March 29, 2022, at the General Hospital, Odeda, in Odeda Local Government Area.
Coker, who was accompanied by the Chairman of the Local Government, Mrs. Folashade Adeyemo, presented some gift items and cash to the mother on behalf of the State government.
“The mother and the babies would be enrolled on the health insurance scheme free of charge so that it would be easier for her to look after herself and the children for the next twelve months. We have given them some succour and I will be getting the medical team to visit them regularly,” she said.
The Commissioner added that the First Lady who has been duly informed about the birth of the babies, would also be visiting them soon, assuring that some other ways to assist the family would be fashioned out.
Appreciating the present administration for the gestures, the mother of the triplets, Mrs. Kafayat Joseph, said she named the babies Dapo, Tomi, and Folashade after the Governor, Commissioner for Health, and the Odeda Local Government Chairman.
