The Chief Medical Director of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Prof. Abdulwaheed Olatinwo yesterday said the hospital would soon commence renal transplant surgery procedure.
The CMD stated this when he spoke to newsmen in Ilorin.
He said the hospital “is at an advanced stage of establishing a renal transplant department”, adding that the department would be ready soon.
Olatinwo, however, pointed out that the major challenge facing the hospital had been paucity of fund.
According to him, the hospital is paying N2 million monthly on electricity bill and N16 million monthly on diesel.
