ABEOKUTA - The Caretaker Chairman, Abeokuta South Local Government, Hon. Ayodeji Shomide has attributed the successful caesarean surgery operation performed by a Primary Health Centre in the council area to the healthcare transformation of Governor Dapo Abiodun's administration in the state. 

The Primary Health Centre in Erunbe, Abeokuta on Sunday reportedly carried out a cesarean surgery on a woman at the health facility. 

The woman and the baby are in good condition. 

Speaking with newsmen on Monday shortly after visiting the newborn baby and the mother, the Caretaker Chairman of the council area, Mr. Ayo Shomide commended the state governor for uplifting the health centre with state of the art equipment which according to him aided the successful operation. 

Shomide maintained that, taking healthcare system down to the grassroots has really reduced the congestion at the state facility.

He assured residents of the local government area of the council's continued support to provide democratic dividends to the people at the grassroots.

The council boss therefore, donated undisclosed amount of money to the mother for the upkeep of the baby. 

Also speaking, the medical staff who performed the surgery, Dr. Solarin Thomas thanked Governor Abiodun for renovating the health facility with effective equipment.

Dr. Solarin noted that, the surgery operation was the first the health centre would performed, urging residents of the community to always patronize the health centre for their medical treatment. 

He said, "we had a lady in labour yesterday that requires surgical intervention to save the baby and the mother. We thank God and most especially the governor of the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun for renovating this health centre with equipment to carry out the surgery successful. 

"It is a new dawn in the health sector of the state and this will improve on the health condition of our people. In time past, we always refer patients to the state hospital or FMC because we lack equipment to perform such service eight years ago, but now, we can handle those cases by ourselves."
