According to Udoh, “the grant is part of efforts of the Chairman of the BUA Group Abdul Samad Rabiu, to give back to the African Continent and make a lasting impact in sustainable development as a means of uplifting and restoring the dignity and lives of Africans.

“We believe that upon completion, the N2.5 billion ASR Africa Maternal and Child Hospital will boost the tertiary healthcare delivery system, train adequate personnel, and drastically reduce maternal and child mortality rates in Ogun state.”, he added.

Responding, Governor Abiodun thanked the ASR Africa Initiative and its founder Abdul Samad Rabiu, for their continuous support to the people of Ogun State and noted that his government remains focused on improving the socio-economic well-being of citizens especially around healthcare delivery.
