Songs of gratitude rent the air as the Lagos State Government offers a toolkit of first aid boxes each of 1017 primary schools across the states.

Each first aid box to be distributed by the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) contained first aid equipment such as iodine, paracetamol, moko lubricant, handgloves, glucose, and other medical supplies needed for supplying first aid to injured pupils.

Recently, the LASUBEB Chairman, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King, who was represented by board member in charge of Quality Assurance, Mr. Dayo Israel, passing comments during the first aid boxes’ distribution to the schools in Lagos. According to him, pupils would now be able to utilize healthcare at school. He said, “This is the beginning of equipping sickbays in our own schools. We are concerned about the safety of our children. We try to see that our children receive healthcare support.  We will maintain and use them for the safety of our children and our schools. Every school gets one box and sanitisers.”

Mrs. Sherifat Adedoyin, a board member in charge of Co-curricular Activities, affirmed that efforts will follow for the government to constantly refill the first aid boxes when the contents run out. Speaking further, she revealed that there was a plan to also train health officers occasionally. In her word, she said, “Most of the schools I visited had nothing in their first aid boxes. I found expired drugs. We will make proposal to government to continue to train and retrain our health officers. We will train health officials from time to time.”
