The Lagos State House of Assembly has directed the state governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, to immortalise the late medical consultant of the First Consultant Hospital, Stella Adadevoh, by renaming the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) after her.
This decision was reached during plenary yesterday after a motion was moved by the member representing Mushin Constituency 1, Adefunmilayo Tejuoso, that the hospital be named after the late Adadevoh for her role at ensuring that the Ebola Disease Virus (EVD) was not spread across the state.
At yesterday’s plenary session, Tejuoso moved the motion while it was supported by the member representing Apapa Constituency 2, Olumuyiwa Jimoh, who told his colleagues that the late Adadevoh was a grand-daughter of late Herbert Macaulay.
The speaker, thereafter, directed the Clerk of the House, Segun Abiru to communicate the decision of the House to Governor Fashola.
The lawmakers, had on Monday called on both the Lagos State and the federal governments to honour the late Dr. Adadevoh while they further stated that it would not be out of place to name the IDH after her if the federal government refused to honour her.
It would be recalled that Adadevoh was the medical consultant, who headed the team that handled the case of the late Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer, who brought the Ebola Virus Disease into Nigeria.
