The Kwara State government says it will address the decay in the health sector of the state, with a view to make health care delivery accessible to the people.

The State Deputy Governor, Mr Kayode Alabi gave the assurance on Wednesday in Ilorin while receiving members of the State Council of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives led by its Chairman, Comrade Joseph Adekanye in his office.

Mr Alabi pledged that the present administration would fix the various health centres to meet the needs of the people.

The Deputy Governor described as unacceptable the deplorable condition of some health facilities in the state, promising that the government would do the needful in due time.

Earlier the Chairman, Comrade Adekanye highlighted some of the challenges to include the gross shortage of human resources, lack of adequate working tools, poor remuneration of Nurses and Midwives, Local government health Workers Welfare and the issue of local government pensioners among others.

Comrade Adekanye commended the State government intervention in restoring the status of the School of Midwifery and the Colleges of Nurses in Ilorin and Oke Ode just as he requested for the completion of Students hostels under construction at College of Nursing, Oke Ode.

He also called for adequate funding of the various health facilities to maintain quality and standard, as well as pledged to collaborate with the government to address decay in the state's health sector.
