Buhari To Commission Ayinke House, Eko Theatre In Lagos Wednesday

President Muhammadu Buhari will commission Ayinke House and Eko Theatre tomorrow (Wednesday).

Ayinke House is the biggest baby manufacturing factory (Maternity Hospital) in Nigeria, upgraded by the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The hospital, located within the premises of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, Ikeja, is an ultramodern 170- bed Obstetrics and Gynecology specialist hospital.

The hospital was conceived to help in reducing cases of newborn and maternal deaths and it boasts of state-of-the-art equipment specifically designed to cater for the health and well-being of mothers and newborns.

Other facilities at the new Ayinke House include 30 incubators with automatic oxygen delivery capacity, neonatal life support, five operating theatres and oxygen plants.

The hospital was upgraded from an 80-bed hospital to a 170-bed facility.

Already, Doctors and other medical staff have been employed and incorporated into the operations of the foremost tertiary medical institution, LASUTH, while it has been confirmed that Ayinke House will rank alongside hospitals in other parts of the world and boast of high-level technology befitting of a tertiary institution.

The Eko Theatre is a sterling concept by the Ambode administration to provide a viable platform for youths to harness their creative minds and potentials.

Presently, four new Theatres have been completed in Ikeja, Badagry and Alimosho and Epe and are set to be inaugurated for public use.

With 65 percent of the Lagos population below the age of 35, Governor Ambode believes that the coming alive of these facilities will afford youths to be more creative and then open the space for them to be able to showcase their talents.

The theatres are also part of the State’s Government development plan for the tourism sector as the facilities are expected to attract visitors from within and outside the country when it comes fully on stream.
