Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo Olu has mourned the sudden death of a medical expert, Dr Vwaere Diaso, of the Lagos State General Hospital, Odan, Lagos Island, within the hospital complex.
The tragic incident was said to have resulted from a mechanical failure within the elevator at the Doctors’ Quarters of the General Hospital.
“It is distressing to think that such a promising young doctor had her life cut short in such a devastating manner,” the Governor said.
He added, “As a parent myself, I cannot help but feel the pain and sorrow that Dr. Diaso’s loved ones must be experiencing during this difficult time. My heart goes out to her parents, family members, friends, and colleagues who are grieving this profound loss.
“To the Nigeria Medical Association, the Medical Guild, and all doctors in Lagos State, I extend my deepest sympathies. Losing a fellow healthcare professional is a tremendous loss for the entire medical community.”
However, amidst the condolences, Mr Sanwo Olu has set up an investigation panel into the cause of the mechanical failure. He required the conduct to be carried out “with utmost transparency and fairness, leaving no room for any biases or favoritism.”
“May Dr. Vwaere Diaso’s soul rest in eternal peace,” the Governor concluded.
