Owner of fake clinic santioned by Ogun government

The Ogun State government says it has commenced the sanctioning of the owner of an illegal medical facility in the state for various infractions.

The Commissioner for Health in the state, Dr Tomi Coker, disclosed this, saying, the government had a few weeks ago sealed some health facilities in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state for falling short of set standards.

Coker in a statement said the government would leave no stone unturned in combating quackery in the state.

The commissioner explained that the monitoring team of the Ministry of Health barely a week after the sanction discovered that the Proprietor of Deevhine Clinic and Maternity Home, located in the Papalanto axis of Ewekoro, had broken the government seal and resumed operations.

She added that the maternity home was not duly registered and it lacked qualified medical personnel, noting that the audacious move of the proprietor to remove the government seal and resume operation forced the Ministry to initiate legal actions against her.
