Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, has charged all staff of the Federal Teaching Hospitals and Centers across the country not to undersell themselves but to showcase their talents and commitment to providing quality healthcare to the people.

He disclosed this during an inspection visit to a mega facility and commissioning of a 50-bed Maternity Center and a Pharmacy Complex completed by the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTH) in Ile-Ife.

The Minister, while noting that he was impressed by the feats accomplished by the center, tasked the staff to market their strengths, capabilities and accomplishments, in other to showcasing the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.

Adewole blamed Nigerians who are unaware of the capacities of the Nigerian hospitals as all they are aware of are the unpleasant happenings such as incessant strikes, saying: “We undersell ourselves but we have some of the finest brains you can find.”

He, however, pledged to work with the Chief Medical Director to project the hospital, adding that the Federal Government was working with Sterling Bank to document the capabilities of Federal Centers so that Nigerians know what they have and can do.

The Chief Medical Director of the Center, Professor Adetiloye had briefed the Minister earlier that the hospital has been able to handle several cases which Nigerians ordinarily go abroad to attend to, insisting that the hospital has expertise for renal transplants and has trained many other hospitals on renal care.

According to Adetiloye, “We have provided over 600 laparascopy surgeries. We have successfully separated Siamese twins and performed 14 open heart surgeries. And in this facility we conduct total hip and knee replacement surgeries among others.”
