PLANS are afloat by Oyo State to institute a special health insurance programme for orphans across the geopolitical zones of the state.

  This was made known by the state governor, Seyi Makinde, while hosting orphanage administrators in the state at Government House, Ibadan, on Saturday.

  He said that his administration would continue to support orphans in the state, adding that the Oyo State Health Insurance Agency would ensure the prompt take off of the programme.

  According to him, the special health programme would enable the orphans to begin to access qualitative medical services in the primary health care centres nearest to them.

  Gov Makinde urged the children in the orphanages to take their studies serious, while praying to God to endow them with wisdom and understanding.

  “I have come to your midst today and pray to God to spare my life up to the time when one of you will be governor of this state; it will happen,” he said.

  Makinde, who noted that orphanages in the state were performing a Herculean task, said their efforts had been bearing on their growth and development.
