Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) branch, has commended Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for funding the commencement of residency training of medical doctors in state hospitals.

Speaking at the January edition of its Ordinary General Meeting and Scientific Conference, on Saturday, ARD President in UITH, Dr. Dele Abdullahi, said the governor is clearly committed to the growth of the health sector and deserves commendation for his efforts.

The development followed the accreditation of the state’s premier hospital, Ilorin General Hospital, for the training of resident doctors, among other health professionals.

“You are a governor that listens to us. We, at ARD UITH, are very grateful, as we have always enjoyed your support. You have supported our outreaches, you listen to us, and you give us the platform to reach for greater heights.

“Under you, the residency training started in Kwara. This is one huge achievement we cannot push aside. We will keep reaching out to you. We hope that this open-door policy you have pushed forward and your cordiality will always be there. The residency training means that we can now train more doctors in the state and that will impact positively on the health sector,” Dr. Abdullahi said.

In a short address at the conference, the governor commended health professionals for their selfless service to humanity and restated the administration’s commitment to improvement of facilities and workers’ welfare.
