Undertakers advocate for more ambulance operators in Lagos hospitals

The President of Lagos State Association of Funeral Directors’, Mr. Boye Akinkunmi, has called on hospitals in the state to acquire ambulance operators for prompt evacuation of emergency cases.

He made the call on Thursday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on the sidelines of the inauguration of the Isolo zone of the association in Lagos.
Akinkunmi said every hospital needed ambulance operators to evacuate the human remains in hospitals and promptly attend to emergencies. He further stressed that, most hospitals in Lagos State don’t have ambulance operators.
Akinkunmi said funeral operators help evacuate human remains from the hospitals and bring in those that were dead from their homes into various government mortuaries that operate within the general hospitals.
He hereby advised the newly inaugurated coordinator of the Isolo zone and the taskforce officers to discharge their duties effectively and obey the laws governing the association.
Earlier, Secretary of LAFD, Mr. Gbenga Stephen, urged the new officers to discharge their duties according to the constitution of the association.
He noted that the association would continue to support the various coordinators and task forces in their various zones in actualising its set objectives.
The newly inaugurated coordinator, Mr. Abakwuo Anthony, expressed his readiness to serve in that capacity.
“I will take my zone to another level, also will work with the state executives of our association in solving challenges confronting my zone,” he said.
Other members of the zonal task force were sworn in from different areas in the state, including Mushin, Yaba, Alimosho, Lagos Island, Isolo, Ikorodu, Badagry and Gbagada.
