Seriously? Lagos Cancer Centre Still Under Lock 4 Weeks After Being Inaugurated By Buhari

The cancer treatment centre President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) about four weeks ago is still under lock.

Buhari inaugurated the centre on Saturday, February 9, with a pledge to ensure that facilities for the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cancer are available to more Nigerians.

When TheCable first visited the facility two days after the launch, the doors were shut, while workers where outside putting finishing touches to some aspects of the building.

One of the officials who spoke to the reporter said the centre was not functional because staff had not been deployed there yet.

“The staff here have not resumed. They can’t begin operation for now. It might be after the election,” the official, who did not want to be named, said.

On a second visit to the facility on Tuesday this week, the building was locked. Only a guard manning the facility was seen.

In a telephone interview with TheCable, Kelechi Otuneme, LUTH spokesman, said he was not aware if the treatment centre had started functioning.

“The HOD is not around. He is the only person that can give you the information,” Otuneme said, promising to provide the HOD’s contact details. He had not fulfilled the promise as of the time this report was filed.
