The wife of Ogun State Governor, Mrs Bamidele Abiodun has come out to say that efforts must be put in place to employ more nurses and midwives to reduce maternal mortality in the state.

She recently revealed this at the town hall meeting organised by Community Development Association and Ogun Women on Maternal Health and Frontline Workers held in Abeokuta, the state capital.

According to her, all stakeholders should unite and come together to help improve the healthcare delivery system in rural areas.

Mrs Bamidele added that there is a need to give a level playing field for women in the rural areas in regards to maternal health.

Her words, “We need to put more efforts into employing more nurses and midwives to reduce maternal mortality in the state. Improving the state of maternal health in the rural areas in Ogun State will require the involvement of all of us.”

“We need to give everybody an equal opportunity, we need to give a level playing field for these women, they are just like us, but vulnerable because of circumstances, it could be any one of us. It is inherent in every society that midwives are present and in abundance but in Ogun, we have a rapid decline.”

“We should encourage our children to go to the school of nursing. By the grace of God, I will speak to the Commissioner for Health to do something, she is a woman and she is also passionate about anything that concerns the women, I will also speak to the Governor to do something about employing women.”
