On her part Mrs Abiola Mapaderun who brought her child for immunization, thanked the Governor for visiting the Health centre.

According to her, the doctors and other health personnel were doing well but the challenge is the long hours they spend each time they visit because the patient population far outweighs the population of the medical personnel.
