The Wife of the Lagos State Governor, Bolanle Ambode, on Tuesday welcomed the first baby of the year in the State, while restating her call for pregnant women in the State to always patronize government health facilities for safe delivery and also immunize their children against killer diseases.
Ambode, who said this at the annual celebration of the first baby of the year in the State, held separately at Shomolu General Hospital, Maternal and Child Care Centre, Gbaja, and Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, said it was important for mothers to give quality attention and priority to the well-being of their children in the overall interest of the society.
The first baby 2019 for Lagos State was born at 12am to the family of Mr. and Mrs. A. Adegbesan at Island Maternity, weighing 3.7kg.
The wife of the Governor said the huge government expenditure on infant and maternal health infrastructure could only be justified by commensurate use of the modern facilities by the women, their babies and the children.
