Governor Abiola Ajimobi gave cash gifts of N100,000 each to two babies born during the launching on Monday of the “Free Medical Mission” programme.
The babies were born fifteen minutes apart.
The first baby, a female, was born by Mrs Odunyemi Akinwale, immediately the governor began his keynote address.
The second baby, a male, was born by Mrs Monsurat Kamorudeen, as the governor was rounding off his speech.
Dr Adeyanji Alaruru, Chief Consultant of Adeoyo Maternity Hospital, Ibadan, received the cash donation on behalf of the two mothers who were still at the lying-in ward.
Alaruru thanked the governor on behalf of the parents of the two babies, adding that they were truly double bundles of joy to the Ajimobi administration.
“Today’s ceremony is two-pronged; we have the flag-off of the “Free Health Mission”, and the Unveiling of Medical Equipment and Consumables by the governor.
“This is a double blessing to the people of the state and to health care service delivery in Oyo as a whole, ” he said.
