Lagos residents express concern over non-implementation of free antenatal and child delivery services

Some Lagos residents have raised concerns about the reported non-implementation of the Lagos State government’s free antenatal and child delivery services at certain General Hospitals and Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in the state.

Speaking in separate interviews on Sunday, residents criticized what they perceive as lip service to the announced initiative.

Residents claim that the promised free services are not being implemented on the ground. A trader who delivered at Ikorodu Health Centre, Ita-Elewa, disclosed that she paid for child delivery fees, vaginal tears, and other services, contrary to the announced free services.
