Father of the baby of the year in Osun, Mr Kajogbola Olasunkanmi, has accused the Osun State General Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo for short-changing the family, even as he confirmed the receipt of N15,000 (Fifteen Thousand Naira) gift and other baby items from the wife of the Governor, Mrs Sherifat Aregbesola.
Olasunkanmi, who spoke with dailypost on Wednesday in Osogbo said the management of the hospital gave only water flask and 5kg rice to them out of the many gifts brought for the baby of the year, including cash, by the Lions Club of Nigeria.
He expressed disappointment over the alleged fraud perpetrated by the management of the hospital, saying such anomaly was unbecoming of a public institution.
“It is very unfortunate that the public institution, which ordinarily should uphold high level of truth and integrity
is found wanting of social vice of this dimension and magnitude
” As we appreciate the wife of the governor for her
gesture, we are not happy over the attitudes of the management of Asubiaro hospital. It is highly unacceptable, and we demand that those behind this fraud be brought to book.
“My mother-in-law, who was with my wife at the time when Lions’ Club came with the gift confirmed that the charity organisation brought many gifts for the baby of the year, out of which the hospital released 5kg of rice and water flask,” Olasunkanmi stressed.
