Agbaje, Sanwo-Olu absent at NMA debate

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Jimi Agbaje, and his counterpart from the All Progressives Congress, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, were absent at the debate organised by the Nigeria Medical Association in Lagos on Wednesday.

The candidates present at the debate were Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi (African Democratic Party), Mr Francis Adebayo (Alliance for New Nigeria), Mr Owolabi Salis (Alliance for Democracy), Mrs Adebisi Ogunsanya (Young Progressive Party), Dr Sam Anyamele (United Democratic Party), Ven. Funso Awe (National Conscience Party), Mr Oluwaseun Ajireloja (Africa Action Congres) and Dr Segun Musa (Africa Nations Development Programme).

The LAGOS NMA Chairman, Dr Saliu Oseni, said the purpose of the debate was to hear the plan of the candidates for the health sector.

On health insurance, Gbadamosi, said he would prioritise the Universal Health Coverage by ensuring that all Lagos State residents got free health service.

The candidate of the ANN, Adebayo, said he would scrap the health insurance scheme and block all the leakages for wasteful spending in the state.

“If all the loopholes are blocked, we will have enough funds to allow citizens to enjoy free health service,” Adelaja said.

Also the governorship candidate of the AD said his government would bridge the gap between the poor and the rich by financing the health sector.

Ogunsanya said his government would ensure that all the idle primary health centres in the state were provided with quality personnel.
