The Lagos chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has reacted to the painful death of Dr Vwaere Diaso of General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island.
In a statement forwarded to Parallel Facts on Wednesday, August 2, the Lagos LP chairman, Pastor Dayo Ekong blamed Dr Diaso’s death on the “inefficiency of the State Government” adding that “Preliminary investigation revealed that there had been complaints about the malfunctioning elevator for years without attention”.
“The death of Dr Vwaere Diaso is not only avoidable but very painful and a pointer to the decrepit infrastructure and inefficient government of the Babajide Sanwoolu-led Lagos State Government.
“The complaints were largely ignored until life was lost, then suddenly, an investigative commission was immediately set up. Must “Governor Sanwoolu” wait until life is lost? Will the commission raise the dead? Why did it take over an hour to get the then-injured (and now dead victim) out of the malfunctioning lift?
“The Babajide Sanwoolu-led LASG had always claimed to be a working Government, especially in the provision of “fantastic health infrastructures”. We wonder if this incident is part of the fantastic infrastructure.
“We continue to reiterate that this present Government is a failed and failing Government that pays little or no attention to the citizens it governs.
“We commiserate with the family of the shining star medical doctor on the death of their promising daughter.
“It is only the Almighty GOD that can console the family on this tragic and avoidable death of your promising daughter.
“It occurred due to the failure of the LASG.
“Please accept our condolences,” the statement read. #LP
