Lagos to begin construction of N49b first medical park in Nigeria

Governor AmbodeThe Lagos State Government has approved approved the construction of the first Medical Park in Nigeria at a cost of N49 billion.
This is in line with government’s efforts to improve healthcare experience and promote medical tourism and excellent healthcare services of international standard.

At a news conference addressed by the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris at the State House, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria on Wednesday, he said that the development was awarded to MEDIPARK International Limited Consortium which comprises MEDIPARK International Limited, Cleveland Clinics Ohio USA, St. Barnabas Healthcare System New Jersey and American Hospital Management Company Washington DC.

The commissioner pointed out that the Lagos State Government was not putting any money on the project as it was purely a Public-Private Partnership, PPP project, but that it is providing the land, which is the old Nursing School in Ikoyi, measuring two acres of land.

Idris recalled that the state government had last year placed adverts in national dailies for Expressions of Interest for development of a Medical Park aimed at ensuring qualitative healthcare delivery to Lagosians.

He said 16 companies/consortiums responded to the advertisement, after which an Evaluation Committee was set up in line with State procurement guidelines with individuals comprising both statutorily mandated members and officers invited to lend technical depth to the exercise.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce that after the receipt of a Certificate of Compliance from the State Public Procurement Agency and a final presentation today to the Executive Council of Lagos State, approval has been given to MEDIPARK International Limited Consortium which comprises MEDIPARK International Limited, Cleveland Clinics Ohio USA, St. Barnabas Healthcare System New Jersey and American Hospital Management Company Washington DC to be the developer to construct manage and operate a Medical Park. It is a joint venture arrangement with Ibile Holdings Ltd,” Idris said.

He said the Medical Park would be sited at the former Lagos State School of Nursing site, spanning over two hectares expanse of land along Awolowo Road, Ikoyi. It would serve as a one stop shopping medical experience offering spaces to primary care physicians alongside in house specialists as well as ancillary services. It will provide a full spectrum of excellent quality high technology cutting – edge medical and diagnostic services to cater for general and specialty medical services tailored to meet the medical needs of Lagosians and Nigerians at large.

The facility, Idris said would comprise a central management area, clinic complex, theatre complex and procedure rooms, ward complex, conference and seminar complex, medical goods and lifestyle shopping centre, stress management and lifestyle improvement unit, data cabling/integrated IT system, structured landscaping, residential accommodation, staff quarters, hotel, emergency and ambulance service, trauma unit, helipad amongst other things.

The commissioner added that the facility would be completed in 20 months.
“We as a government believe that health is wealth and there is no amount of investment in the healthcare sector, that can be too much for the good people of this State, because Itesiwaju Ilu Eko Lo Je Wa Logun,” he said.

UNICAL Shut Down Indefinitely

In the light of recent kidnappings on campus, lecturers in University of Calabar (UNICAL) have embarked on industrial action to demand for more security on campus.


The lecturers want armed security personnel to be deployed on campus and residential quarters following the kidnapping of lecturers and students at the residential quarters on Tuesday morning.

Dr Tony Eyang, the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, told Vanguard that the lecturers feel insecure with the recent kidnappings on campus owing to the porous security in and around the campus and as such would not go to classes until the government takes decisive steps to secure the university environment.

“The action of the lecturers is in solidarity with their colleagues whose beloved ones were kidnapped in their homes at the University of Calabar staff quarters and they are saying this has never happened before so government’s attention has to be drawn to the poor security situation here in order for them to provide enough armed security personnel to stop such incidents from happening.’’

He said the Cross River State government, federal government and University of Calabar authorities have to join forces to provide adequate security on the campus before the lecturers return to work.

PUNCH reports that Head, Press and Protocol Unit of the bureau, Mohammed Idris, in a statement titled ‘Re: CCB still verifying Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki’s, others’assets,’ said, “The bureau wishes to inform the general public that it has since concluded the verification of assets declared by those mentioned in the said publication.

“Therefore, the said publication is another trick to misinform the public so as to undermine the ongoing trials of cases of false declaration of assets before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

“It could be observed that since the inception of the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari, the rate of compliance by public officials in responding to assets declaration has greatly increased.

“The bureau will like to use this medium to appeal to those who are yet to declare their assets to visit the Asokoro, Head Office of No 23, Halle Salasi Street Asokoro, Abuja to collect, fill and submit same to the office.”

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has refuted the report that he and some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West are having issues over the forthcoming election of the national chairmanship of the party.

According to a report filed by PUNCH, Fayose said specifically that he had no score to settle with the Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and the former Vice Chairman of the party in the South-West, Chief Bode George over leadership matters.

Fayose stated this while speaking at a meeting of the South-West leaders of the party, held at the International Event Centre, Akure, the Ondo State capital on Wednesday.

He said, “I read it in the newspapers that Chief Bode George abused me, but you can see me and him sitting beside each other here. He and I have come a long way, we are together. Dr. Mimiko and I have no score to settle too, we are together we are bound to agree.”

While charging the leaders to embrace unity for the party to move forward, the governor urged members to elect the people with ideas to run the affairs of the party at the forthcoming National Convention.

“There is nothing wrong with the PDP but the individuals in the party, I want us to push forward people with great ideas, Nigeria is too big for octogenarian to be the President. We need young people with energy to do this job for us,” he declared.

NNPC Moves to Increase Capacity of Nigeria's Refineries

The Group Executive Director/Chief Operating Officer, GED/COO, Commercials, NNPC,Dr. Babatude Adeniran, has announced that the state oil firm is making moves to make Nigeria self-sufficient in the supply of petroleum products.

“The current situation being experienced by the general public with respect to the lingering scarcity, calls for a new thinking towards making the country self-sufficient in the supply of petroleum products.

“NNPC has commenced the process of increasing the refining capacity of the existing refineries through co-locations of private refining infrastructure. This is to balance the country’s needs, as importation of petroleum products doesn’t create jobs, rather it causes loss of tax income to the government, and also creates a large amount of emotional backlash when people have to queue for days looking for fuel.”

“The Federal Government can fund the development of modular refineries in the country. Nigeria relies majorly on importation, creating jobs for people overseas, thereby increasing unemployment in the country,” he added.

Tunji ‘Teebillz’ Balogun, husband of singer Tiwa Savage has maintained virtual radio silence since his social media rant last week and his wife’s subsequent interview.

THENETNG has now confirmed those close to him are working to help him recuperate and get rehabilitation.

As Tiwa said in her Interview, Teebillz has not lived in their home for about two weeks and after his suicide attempt last week, he’s hibernated at Banky W‘s home in Lekki.

THENETNG confirmed last night that his close friends have now moved him to an apartment in 1004 estate in Victoria Island, Lagos, with the support of popular promoter Paul Okoye.

‘Everyone says he’s in a good place now, getting all the love and support he needs’, a friend told THENETNG.

‘They want him to have his life back. He’s definitely going into rehab.’

‘His family in US are really praying for him and his close friends in Lagos are making efforts to get him to rehab’, a source told THENETNG.

Nigerian Entertainment Today confirmed that some of the close friends supporting and advising him include Paul Okoye, Psquare‘s Peter, Banky W, CECIL HAMMOND and Omawumi‘s husband, Tosin Yusuf.

Meanwhile his estranged wife Tiwa Savage is already back at work, with multiple sources confirming she was in a video set over the holidays. Those close to her say she’s ‘trying her best to stay strong and positive, and she’s not taking her mind off her work and her son- even for a minute.’

Jay Z is Set to ‘Release’ Response to Beyonce 'Lemonade'

According to Us Weekly, an insider source has revealed that rap icon and husband to Beyonce, Jay z will be sipping on Gin and Tonic soon or whatever his response toBeyonce’s lemonade album will be called.
The 46 year old father of one is allegedly in the studio spitting rhymes and recording his version of the events surrounding  the cheating allegations, contemplated divorce and rough patch his 8-year union to Queen Bey has experienced, and how they got through it.  “Jay is working on an album telling his side of things,” explained a source close to the couple.
Beyonce released her tell-all critically acclaimed album on April 23, where she took fans on an emotional roller-coaster of infidelity, betrayal, and the road to forgiveness, addressing long-­standing rumors about her husband’s fidelity with lyrics like “This is your final warning / You know I give you life / If you try this s‑‑t again / You gon’ lose your wife.”
Hopefully, this will be some sort of a public apology not the final nail on the coffin as the couple have been seen less and less together since Lemonade dropped, especially with Beyonce riding solo at the Met Gala.
We are impatiently waiting for that album and maybe it will finally reveal the identity of #BeckyWithTheGoodHair which has been the subject of much speculation.

Toke Makinwa Writes Idris Elba a Love Note| Must READ

We are not the only ones crushing on the handsome actor and DJ, Idris Elba. Apparently, Toke Makinwa has a thing for him too, and unable to hold back what she is feeling, the popular OAP took to social media to write the British hunk a short, love note.
It all started last night when Makinwa asked fans what they would say if they were to write Elba a love note, and then she asked if the actor has an Instagram account. “Dear Idris,” she proceeded, pouring her heart out, “you leave me speechless.”
toke idris elba
Makinwa has previously clarified that she is now single. The 31-year-old’s marriage to trainer Maje Ayida crumbled last year after he cheated on her and also put his mistress in the family way. Before now, there were previous speculations that she made peace with Ayida, but the OAP set the records straight in early March. “I am single,” she wrote, driving the point home about her status.
Now, she is writing love notes and we only wish the actor would respond to the cute letter.
Meanwhile, singer Yemi Alade who has always kept a low profile on her relationship also gushed about Idris yesterday. “Goodnight @idriselba πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜obsessed and inspired πŸ˜†πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ in my dreams,” the ‘Johnny singer said.
To catch a glimpse of why they are all falling over him, watch his video ‘Confidential’ with D’banj and Shadow Boxxer below:
