Dr. Babatunde Okewale

In line with its commitment to deliver total healthcare to its patrons and patients and etched a permanent smile on the faces of families, St. Ives Hospital recently celebrated a landmark three thousand (3000) in vitro fertilization, IVF births. The hospital, which is fast becoming synonymous with IVF success, has continued to record ground breaking acclaim with its patients in its assisted reproductive technology initiative.
Many Nigerians who hitherto believed that their dreams of becoming parents via the IVF route can only be realized abroad are now the ones recommending the hospital to others in the same situation as themselves. The 3000 births success represents one of the highest rates in the medical industry in Nigeria.
St. Ives hospital started out in 1996, with the family as the area of focus, dedicating its service to women, children and the family at large. Overtime, in 2007, it delved into fertility as a core area of competence and has since distinguished itself as the hospital of choice for those who are seeking the fruit of the womb. Among its outstanding feats was the delivery of a set of twins by a 68-year-old lady, which went on to be recorded as the oldest IVF mother in Africa.
The hospital, whose team is led by Dr. Babatunde Okewale, the founder and Chief Medical Director has continued to grow in leaps and bounds with presence at Ikeja, Ikoyi, Akowonjo, all in Lagos State and Abeokuta in Ogun State. The FESTAC branch of the hospital is planned for opening in the third quarter of 2024. One of the outstanding features of the hospital is the fact that there is a medical consultant on seat at each of its hospital branches.

Debola Daniel, the son of the former governor governor of Ogun State and current senator at the national assembly, Otunba Gbenga Daniel recently encountered discrimination at a popular fast food restaurant, which serves as a stark portrayal of the challenges faced by people with disabilities in Nigeria.
Despite being a prominent figure’s offspring, the young man, who relies on a wheelchair for mobility, was denied access to the lounge area of a popular fast food restaurant, KFC, located inside the departure hall of MM International in Lagos.
His poignant revelation on social media has ignited a firestorm of outrage, shedding light on the pervasive discrimination and lack of accessibility faced by disabled individuals in the country.
The incident, which unfolded at a KFC outlet when he was on his way out of the country with his siblings and wife, revealed the systemic barriers encountered by people with disabilities in Nigeria. Despite the enactment of legislation aimed at promoting inclusivity and accessibility, many establishments continue to fall short in providing equal opportunities for all.
Speaking out against the discriminatory treatment, Debola lamented the prevalent societal attitudes that marginalize individuals with disabilities. His poignant reflections on social media resonated deeply, highlighting the profound impact of ableism on the lives of disabled Nigerians.
“I have never been the type of person to make a fuss or complain about my disability,” he expressed. “But to be disabled in Nigeria is to be undesirable, unwelcome, and unaccepted. It’s a lonely, scary, and isolated place.”
The young man’s candid revelation sheds light on the harsh realities faced by disabled individuals, who often grapple with feelings of invisibility and exclusion. Despite their inherent dignity and humanity, they are frequently subjected to discrimination and disregard in various spheres of society.
This unfortunate episode is a stark reminder of the challenges faced by people with disabilities in Nigeria.
KFC is yet to respond to calls for comments as at the time publishing this report.
