Gov. Ambode inaugurates new road into LASUTH
Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode ,has launched a new road connecting the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital premises from Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way in Ikeja.
Ambode, who inaugurated the route on Wednesday, also examined the progress of work on the LASUTH Maternity Hospital, popularly known as Ayinke House.
He directed contractors handling the project to deliver in six months.
Ambode delightfully stated that newly completed road would ensure quicker access to medical care.
He said, “We realised that just one entrance into LASUTH is too dangerous. It has been like that for almost three or four decades; but we are happy to open another access road to boost the process of saving lives.

“Patients can come in ambulance, but they can be held up in traffic for almost 30 minutes and unable to disembark. However, this road will remove the tragedy that may occur through such delay. In another five to six months, we will be back here to make the Ayinke House functional.”
Ambode, who also inspected ongoing projects across the state, ordered additional projects such as a lounge and canteen for families of patients as well as Ear, Nose and Throat Department in the ongoing upgrade and expansion of the Alimosho General Hospital.
Applauding the governor, the Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adewale Oke, thanked him commitment to the health sector.
