osun helicopterThe of State of Osun Government has acquired a helicopter to beef up its Swift Anti-Robbery Squad (SAS) in the aspect of aerial surveillance as part of the effort to make the state inhospitable to criminals. The helicopter, a French Five-Plus-One passenger Eurocopter AS-355N, is a 2006 Model with twin engines.

The latest security acquisition is to compliments the state’s earlier investments on adequate protection of lives and properties of the citizenry through the procurement of several Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs), communication gadgets and Police Patrol Van . The helicopter is to ensure aerial surveillance which would make it impossible criminals to escape out of the state the moment any crime is committed.

The helicopter is also to provide emergency services for the OSUN EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY AND THE O-AMBULANCE in cases of medical emergencies and other forms of evacuations.

    This is a great development in the State of Osun.Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is really doing things that previous administration thoughts it’s impossible due to the fact that the state is ranked 34th on the budget allocation.
    In Nigeria of nowadays good leader is rare to find but GOD endowed the state of osun with a visionary leader that has the vision of taking THE STATE OF OMOLUABI to a greater,may God help our dear governor to fulfil his promise……..GOD BLESS OSOGBO….GOD BLESS OSUN STATE….GOD BLESS FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA


    I read last week about Osun State Emergency Ambulance Services and i was very excited about the project not knowing that my happiness will be increased this week through this new Emergency Helicopter scheme,
    I am a Nurse Practitioner with the National Health Services in the United Kingdom and having worked at home and abroad my happiness knows no limit about this project, With all modest, i have donated medical equipments to Osun State Government in the past and i am ready and willing to do more of this when next i visit Nigeria on holiday.

    I used to work as a Nurse at Ring Road State Hospital and State Hospital, Oyo. I have seen enough deaths in my life but some of these deaths were not necessary but happened because of lack of ambulance to bring accident victims to the hospitals on time and lack of basic medical equipments that were necessary to treat these patients.

    Jamaica where i have worked as a senior nurse has less than Osun State population but has many ambulances for emergency including air ambulance.

    This project is the best gift the Governor of the State will give me and people of Osun this year. Please let there be defrilators, ECG, and monitors on these ambulances.
    Thank you Ogbeni Aregbesola for you kind gestures to the masses of the State. I am looking forward to State of art hospitals across all the local Government of Osun State.
    Osun State can provide affordable, modern and dynamic healthcare services for the masses through Health Insurance that masses can afford. I know that many Nigerians don’t want to pay for healthcare services because of their beliefs that Goverment should pay for everything.
    Let there be Osun State Health Insurance Scheme where the citizens of Osun State will pay six thousand per annum and be able to get the bext healthcare services money can buy.
    In UK where i work, people tat work pay National Insurance in addition to the regual salary and these Insurance contributions are used for healthcare services which is from birth to death.
    Osun state can do this but people who are not working will not be made to pay this Insurance but at the same time will not be denied healthcare services because of this.
    God bless Nigeria, God bless Osun State. The best is yet to come. Osun State people should give Aregbesola another four years and the State of living spring will never be the same again.
