Earlier, Oshiomhole said that since the hospital was established in 1902, successive governments had tried to renovate the hospital.

He, however, said he was embarrassed by the state of the medical facility during his first visit and decided that rather than continue with the “piece-meal renovation work; we decided to demolish and rebuild the hospital’’.

Oshiomhole stressed that this was with the conviction that public health facility should not be inferior to private ones.

The governor said that one way to show equality was for government to provide good health facilities and stop lamenting about foreign medical tourism.
