Thank you Governor Ambode, by Mojeed Jamiu

Akinwunmi AmbodeWhatever magic the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has put in place to ease the traffic gridlock in Apapa must be sustained.

I spent less than 35 minutes from Shangisha to Lagoon Hospital, Apapa.

I must also thank the Lagos Governor for saving the life of my bosom friend, who was involved in a fatal accident along the Lekki-Epe Expressway last Sunday.

The swift response of the Emergency Team with just a call to 112 and the mobile ambulance (which I now termed hospital on the wheel) was key to my friend’s survival. He was treated free of charge!

I recall that those mobile clinics were launched by the Governor just two weeks earlier.

I must also commend the effort of the medical team at the Lagos Trauma (Accident & Emergency Centre) Ikeja Toll Gate, near 7-Up. You guys are wonderful and I thank you all!

Honestly, I can say that Lagos is working and Nigeria should learn from this example.

Thank you Mr Governor and your wonderful team in the health care delivery sector!
