Oyo Govt Intensifies Crackdown on Quackery and Illegal Health Facilities

The Oyo State Government has reaffirmed its commitment to eradicating quackery and illegal health facilities throughout the state

The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Oluwaserimi Ajetunmobi stated this while monitoring various health facilities statewide

The facilities sealed during the monitoring exercise include Ayinke Clinic and Maternity, Omowumi Hospital and Olajumoke Clinic Maternity at Saki respectively, and six others within the Ibadan metropolis.

The Commissioner said that a huge number of health facilities have been sanctioned for committing different offenses ranging from the recruitment of unqualified medical personnel, non-registration of the facility, handling of cases beyond the facility, among others.

It would be recalled that the State Anti-quackery Task Force was set up by His Excellency, Engr. Seyi Makinde, headed by the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Oluwaserimi Adewumi Ajetunmobi, with qualified Medical Personnel as Team members with the aim of eradicating fraudulent practices within the health sector.

Speaking during the exercise, the Chairman of the State Anti-quackery Task Force Committee, Dr. Adekunle Aremu reiterated that the State Government is making concerted efforts in monitoring various health facilities across the State to separate the quacks from professionals in the health sector.

He urged the public to report any suspicious or illegal activities in health facilities to the State Ministry of Health or any security agency. He noted that the exercise which began in Ibadan would soon expand its tentacles to other zones including Oyo, Ogbomoso and Saki with a clear message that anyone found culpable will face the full wrath of the law.
