Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has directed that snake bites be treated in all the state’s hospitals and the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) free of charge.
State Health Commissioner Razak Raji told reporters Wednesday in Ilorin, the state capital on the sideline of the presentation of 100-bed sets, medicines, and other medicaments to authorities of UITH by Sir Emeka Offor Foundation in partnership with Savannah Centre for Development, Diplomacy, and Democracy.
Dr. Raji said “Just last week, Kwara state Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq donated several anti-snake venom vaccines to be used on patients of snake bite free. And we deployed such also to some of the state general hospitals. As I am talking to you now snakebite should be treated in the state free.
