  1. Osun state got $20m from SOML, got the BHCPF and got the FMOH supported nutritional supplements….wowww. Great dividends of having a Federal Minister of health from Osun state.

    I just hope Osun state can become the medical tourism hub in Nigeria with all this money at it’s disposal, thanks to the Son of the Soil minister.
