Buhari commissions reconstructed Ayinke House

President Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned the Institute of Maternal and Child Health (Ayinke House), located within Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) Ikeja.

Buhari commissioned the building shortly after arrival in Lagos on Wednesday.

He was also taken on a tour of the facility by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State.

Governors Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Rotimi Akerodolu of Ondo and Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State were part of the inauguration.

Buhari is expected to also inaugurate the Lagos Theatre, Oshodi Transport Interchange and International Airport Road and 820 Mass Transit buses.

On Ayinke House inauguration, Ambode said the facility got its name from late philanthropist, Mobolaji Bank-Anthony, who donated the first maternal and child care facility to the state government in memory of his mother.

“Today, seven years after the closure of the facility, the new edifice is now a 170-bed facility with five surgical theatres.

“It has a 16-bed emergency care unit with three organ support facilities, 30-bed special baby care unit, five neo-natal intensive care units, a fully equipped laboratory with support services, laboratories and a blood bank,” Ambode said.
