The government of Lagos state has conducted surgery for at least 3,000 physically challenged persons through the limb deformity corrective surgery and rehabilitation exercise in the state.

Governor Babatunde Fashola, who presented walking aids to the new beneficiaries of the limb deformity corrective surgery programme at the General Hospital, Lagos, said 27 out of the 67 physically challenged persons screened for limb correction have been treated in the ongoing edition of the programme.

“Today, I am putting smiles on the faces of the residents, giving residents of the state new hope is more important to me than constructing bridges and roads,” Fashola said while distributing the materials.

He said this was “why public infrastructures have ramps and side walk ways constructed to create equal opportunity for both able bodied and physically challenged.”

“It is also part of the effort to enhance their movement and to make them live a better life, achieve their goal and contribute meaningfully to the development of the society.”
