The Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Dr. Ali Ahmad, in a bid to complement the state government efforts on the provision of qualitative healthcare delivery services on Tuesday inaugurated Isale-Asa Cottage Hospital for the community’s benefit and it’s environs.
The hospital’s location falls within Ilorin South Constituency, the Speaker’s constituency. It is equipped with necessary tools, facilities and furnished to meet the community’s yearning.
Inaugurating the health facility, Ahmad said any serious government must at all times be determined to prioritise the people’s welfare vis-a-vis provision of sound health care services.

The Speaker, however, expressed his belief that the health facility would totally eradicate the community’s sufferings, especially regarding having access to quality health services.
Earlier in his address, the President of Isale Asa Development Association, Mr. Raji Tunde, who appreciated the donor stressed that the community would forever cherish the good gesture.
Tunde, however, called on the state government through the Ministry of Health not to hesitate to provide adequate personnel to man the facility for the benefit of the people.
Also speaking, a political stakeholder in Ilorin South, Alhaji Saka Ayinde Kutijifu, commended the Speaker and admonished other political office holders in the area to emulate his good gestures.
Kutijifu said the donor had always prioritise the people’s well-being, stating that the gesture did not come to them as a surprise due to his antecedents since venturing into politics.
