Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko has urged Governor-elect Rotimi Akeredolu to build on his achievements in the health sector.
Mimiko advised his successor to sustain his policy on “Mother and Child health care” to reduce maternal mortality.
He gave the advice in Akure, the state capital, during the second anniversary of the Agbebiye Initiative.
The governor recalled the efforts put into the scheme by his government, especially Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs), who were recruited as Agbebiye Vanguards in the state’s 203 wards.
“Today, 14,121 referrals of babies are born safely through this initiative,” he said.
