The Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari has promised to champion advocacy on prevention of obstetric fistula, as well as other maternal birth complications in Kwara State.

Sulu-Gambari, who made the promise while receiving the Country Project Manager of Engender Health, implementer of USAID Fistula Care Plus Project, Chief Iyeme Efem and his team in his palace, assured he would use the meeting of all traditional rulers in the state to charge monarchs to encourage their subjects to attend antenatal care regularly during pregnancy.

“Women suffer a lot during child bearing. Many people have lost their wives, sisters and mothers, because of maternal issues. I can assure you that we the traditional rulers in Kwara will take up this issue and give it the necessary advocacy it deserves to stem the cases of fistula in the state,” he said.

Sulu-Gambari called on women in the state to always deliver under skilled birth attendants to avoid childbirth related complications, particularly obstetric fistula.
