Osun State Deputy Governor, Mr Benedict Alabi has enjoined the people of the state to take maximum advantage of the Osun Health insurance Scheme introduced by the state government for unlimited quality health care.
He encouraged the people to enroll in the scheme with just 12,600 naira annually saying this would safe them any expenses on health related matters.
Alabi gave the advice on Friday in Ikire, while addressing a mammoth crowd of APC members gathered for ward monthly meeting held at ward 4, Oluofinrin Ikire.

Alabi also cautioned the youths against unwanted pregnancy which always leads to unintended marriages which is very rampant in the area.
” I want to advice our people particularly, our youths to stop unwanted pregnancy because the report by the world health organization shows that the menace is very rampant here than other places and the consequence of it, is multiplication of abject poverty”, Mr Alabi warned.
He announced to the people about the resolve of the political office holders in Osun West Senatorial District to sponsor at least 5 people among the poorest in each ward for Osun health insurance scheme enrollment.
