Speaking at a special prayer service held at the Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja, Mrs Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by the wife of the deputy governor, Mrs Oluremi Hamzat, said the prayer session became imperative in view of the challenges confronting the country.

The affected agencies are the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, the Child Protection Unit of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, and the Gender Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Lagos.

She also appealed for understanding on the decision of the state government to ban the commercial motorcycles (popularly known as Okada), saying it was important for the provisions of relevant laws to be enforced to sanitize the environment.

Sanwo-Olu who on Wednesday joined policy makers, stakeholders and partners in the fight against TB to commemorate year 2021 World TB Day in Lagos with an Awareness Walk and an engagement meeting, said the state government is determined, now more than ever, to change the narrative of high TB prevalence in Lagos and its position as the state with the highest TB burden.

Sanwo-Olu, who spoke at the LTV Blue Roof in Agidingbi, Ikeja during the launch of Ilera Eko Day which is a symbolic social campaign designed to integrate Lagos residents to the health insurance policy of the state government, said the scheme aptly signifies the commitment of the present administration towards promoting human right to health and resilient healthcare network.

The wife of the Governor, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, who disclosed this on Thursday at the celebration of Year 2020 Universal Healthcare Coverage Day, organized by the Lagos State Health Management Agency, said the development was in furtherance of the commitment of the state government to expand access to healthcare delivery, especially for the less-privileged.
