The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has congratulated the Marcelle Ruth Cancer Centre & Specialist Hospital, Ikoyi Lagos, for being the first of such centres in Nigeria.
Gbajabiamila said with the take-off of the centre in April, Nigerians have at last gotten a cancer centre with a state-of-the-art facility for chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, a one-stop centre obtainable anywhere in the world.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker said he was proud of the Marcelle Ruth Cancer Centre and Specialist Hospital for being the pioneer.
“I congratulate the founders, Dr. Modupe Elebute-Odunsi and Mr. Bolaji Odunsi, and the management of the Marcelle Ruth Cancer Centre & Specialist Hospital, Victoria Island, Lagos for this great feat.
“I am elated to be associated with this success story as I attended the formal opening of the centre in April. Within just a few months of your operations, you have started to prove that you can be trusted.
“Your story is not only encouraging but also inspiring. I am more than happy that this comprehensive healthcare centre is the first of its kind in Nigeria and, indeed, West Africa,” the Speaker said.
