Take care of their family. Let your healing power flow through them. This day marks a new time of testimony, signs and wonders in the hospital and all other hospitals in Lagos State. All those that have ailments heal them all. We unveil this plague in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. God bless you.”

“We have been partnering the state in the area of health because we believe one of the duties of the church is to serve God and humanity. This is just another milestone in our CSR project. This is a partnership of over 25 years. In the last 10 years we have been able to assist with mobile clinics, hospitals, cancer screening centres, feeding over 6000 people every Sunday within the state. We have rehabilitation centres, and equipped over 500 libraries in the state,” he said.
The head, Anesthesia and Intensive Care (IC), Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Dr Adetinuwe Majekodunmi, also expressed her happiness with the donations and the inauguration of the renovated intensive care unit at the hospital’s Surgical Emergency.
“With these new equipments now, patients, as usual will experience first class treatment. Though the number to be attended to are much, despite the fact that there are four beds along with the 16 at CCU that make it 20. And still not enough. The beds are always occupied each week of the month round the year. The hospital can do with more because we admit on referrals from other hospitals-private, general or even from neighboring states,” she said.
