Prof Grange's new job

1 Mins read

….we are quick to forget.

Professor Adenike Grange Former Minister of Health, who lost her job from the Umaru Yar’Adua administration over the controversial unspent budget, was recently appointed as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Provost, Otunba Tunwase National Pediatric Centre, Ijeb-Ode, Ogun State.

While the case against her lingers on through the bureacratic hurdles of our judiciary, in the court of public opinion. At the beginning of this administration, when there seemed to be a clear determination to fight corruption, we mulled over the the issue on if Professor Grange will be seen as a victim or villian by the Nigerian people.

Since then a lot has happened in Nigeria. Politicians that raped the Nigerian people have turned kingmakers and elderstatesmen. Those that led the anti corruption crusade have been hounded out of the country. We are now in comical era of “rule of law” where emphasis is placed on branding, or re-branding.

The vision of the Otunba Tunwase National Pediatric Centre, it is an international centre of excellence, for teaching, research and health care for children with a total commitment to the very best in all activities related to the survival of infants and children.

According to its website, the Otunba Tunwase National Paediatric Centre has established a Non Profit Organization (NGO) known as the ‘‘Association of Friends of Otunba Tunwase National Paediatric Centre’’ a registered philanthropic NGO whose objectives is to raise funds both Nationally and Inter nationally for equipping, maintaining and generally financing the Paediatric centre and providing for all spheres of its activities in perpetuity.

We wish her well.
