Report suspected unregistered schools to govt, Health minister tells Nigerians


The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole has called on Nigerians to report any school they suspect to be unregistered, as part of measures to curb tragedies like the Lagos collapsed building which housed an unregistered school.

The minister made the call when he reacted to the sad incident of school pupils killed in the collapsed building. He also warned hospitals to release corpses to family members at no charge.

He commended the state government for the prompt response and efficient healthcare management of survivors of the accident and commended the government for granting free medical care to the victims in order to remove any barriers to prompt, qualitative and comprehensive care needed or the rehabilitation of victims.

“I am greatly impressed by the promptness of the emergency response of the state and the efficient healthcare deployed to ensure that the survivors of the sad incident are stabilised and kept alive,” he said.

The minister added that there were plans to strengthen the healthcare system across the states in order to address emergencies and save lives from emergency situations.

He urged other states of the federation to emulate Lagos State in order to attend to emergencies and save lives.

“I also want to appeal to the media and Nigerians to report suspected unregistered schools in an environment not ideal for learning,” Adewole said.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Jide Idris, has revealed that at least 20 people were brought to the General Hospital in Lagos dead from the building that collapsed in Ita Faji area of Lagos.

The commissioner made this known during a visit to the hospital, Friday, adding that all the corpses have been released to the family members for proper burial.

Speaking further at the hospital, the Commissioner said 45 persons survived the collapse and are being managed across some of the state health facilities, including Lagos Island General Hospital, Massey Street, Children’s Hospital, Onikan Health Centre and Gbagada General Hospital.

He said: “Out of the 45 survivors known to the government as at this morning, 14, including 10 children and four adults, are still receiving medical attention at Lagos Island General Hospital. More survivors will still be discharged to their families before the close of work today, “he assured.
