According to the sponsor of the bill, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, member representing Owan Federal Constituency, the establishment of the medical Centre was informed by the need to bridge the existing gap between primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare delivery system in Edo State and Nation at large.

“This Bill, is in response to the yearnings of the good people of Owan Federal Constituency. I have watched helplessly on daily basis as women and children die due to lack of well-equipped healthcare centers. Residents, travel as far to Edo Central and Edo South Senatorial District of the State just to access better health care facility.

“There is the need to bring tertiary healthcare closer to the people which this bill seeks to achieve. When established, the Federal Medical Centre will bring the much needed relief to inhabitants who have for long had to travel long distances to get medical attention.” He said.
