Doctor Drought No More! Lagos Unveils Hospital and a Bold Cure: Build a Medical Uni!



Imagine Lagos, buzzing with medical brilliance, not just a megacity but a Mecca for medics! That’s the future Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu unveiled on Tuesday, alongside a swanky new hospital: a brand spanking medical university, churning out 1,500 doctorly dynamos each year! Talk about slaying the brain drain with a brain train!

Think of it as the antidote to the brain drain epidemic plaguing our doctors and nurses. No more jetting off to greener pastures, they’ll be growing their own right here in Lagos. Sanwo-Olu, ever the medical marvel himself, unveiled this gem while christening the Femi Gbajabiamila General Hospital, a shiny new beacon of healthcare in Surulere.

“Exodus of doctors?” scoffed Sanwo-Olu, channeling his inner Hippocrates. “Not on my watch! We’re building a doctor factory, Lagos-style!” This medical uni, he declared, will be “a strategic intervention moment,” like a superhero landing and flexing against the villainous shortage of healers.

But wait, there’s more! This university won’t be some dusty old textbook trap. Sanwo-Olu promises it’ll be “cutting-edge,” a Silicon Valley of scalpels and stethoscopes. Think 3D-printed organs, AI-powered diagnoses, and robots assisting surgery with the grace of ballerinas (minus the tutus, hopefully).

So, buckle up, Lagos! Get ready for a future where finding a doctor is easier than hailing a cab (and that’s saying something!). This medical uni isn’t just about bricks and mortar, it’s about building a healthier, happier Lagos, one doctor at a time. And who knows, maybe one day, Lagos-made doctors will be flying in to save the world, one stethoscope-wielding superhero at a time!
