According to Dr Raji, members of the public will benefit from the services provided like medical consultation, general surgery, eye surgery and reading glasses.

The commissioner, while interacting with the beneficiaries, community leaders and health workers at Malete reiterated the commitment of the Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq administration to providing succour to all segments of the society.

Dr. Raji stated that the free health care services is being moved from one community to the other on weekly basis per Local Government Area and that all the Local Goveenment Areas of the state would be visited.

He expressed satisfaction with the quality of services being rendered and further explained that the commencement of the Year 2022 round of outreach marked the onset of the eighth round of community based state-wide health care interventions embarked upon by this administration.

The matron in charge of the Comprehensive Health Centre, Malete in Moro LGA, Alhaja Afusat Mohammed, which hosted the medical and surgical outreach activity, expressed delight at government's concern for the less privileged who usually find it difficult to afford the cost of such surgical services that are being rendered to the people free of cost at the facility.

The father of one of the beneficiaries, Mr Oseni Rafiu, commended the state government’s efforts at ensuring delivery of qualitative health care services to the citizens. He said 'Our story has changed for good in Kwara State, we pray for many more of this kind of life changing interventions'.

The team lead of the medical and surgical outreach, Dr. Stephen Arigidi, said the turnout has been impressive and that the team has enough people on ground to meet the target of providing medical, general and Eye surgery and glasses to well over 500 beneficiaries.

Dr. Arigidi said the team is complying with the timetable as advertised and that the next point of call would be the Dr. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari Mother and Child Hospital at Eyenkorin, Thursday next week, where the Asa LGA edition of the free state-wide exercise has been planned to hold.
