Alternate Medicine Practitioners in 
Ogun State have been charged to sustain  the modern practice of the profession in line with government directives and policy of the World Health Organisation (WHO), targeted at complementing the efforts of the scientific medicine practitioners.

 Chairman of Ogun State House of Assembly Service Commission, Hon. Waliu Taiwo gave the charge during the swearing-in of the new executive members of Ogun State Traditional Healers Association, held at the State College of Nursing and Sciences Hall, Federal Medical Centre, Idi- Aba, Abeokuta.
Taiwo urged the practitioners in the sub- sector to embrace all the policies put in place by the Ogun State Government, to further enhance their profession and provide accessible, affordable and quality Healthcare services to the citizens of the State, saying the scientific practitioners cannot achieve the service required all alone, hence the need for alternative intervention 


In her remark, the Executive Secretary, Dr. Kafayat Lawal, who also doubles as Registrar of the Board, represented by Mrs. Ola Sobande, applauded the association for their good conduct since its establishment, imploring the newly appointed executives to continue the legacies of their predecessors in promoting the best practices.

She assured them of government support at all times as long as they comply with the rules and regulations guiding the practice in the State, adding that the present administration in the state will not relent in its efforts to promote the practice to world-class best in no distant time.
