He revealed that the project is possible through the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila who has agreed to champion the project through an intervention fund from the National Assembly. 

Gbajabiamila had on Monday after delivering a lecture at the 52nd Convocation ceremony of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) moved to the University’s College of Medicine at Idi-Araba for foundation laying of a new medical outpatient Centre for the benefit of LUTH, the community and members of the public.
