Assembly pledges proper upgrading of Sokoto Health Technology school



The Sokoto State House of Assembly is to review the law setting up the Sultan Abdulrahman School of Health Technology Gwadabawa, to enable it produce relevant manpower for the state health sector.

Nigeria News Agency reports that the Chairman, House Committee on Higher Education, Alhaji Sule Romo (PDP- Tambuwal West), made the pledge during the committee’s oversight visit to the institution.

Romo observed that the law governing the establishment of the school has become absolute and needs total review to facilitate the upgrading of the school to College of Health Technology.

“As such, I want to assure you that we will revisit the law that established Sultan Abdulrahman School of Health Technology Gwadabawa, in order to enable proper upgrading of the school to a College.

“Moreover, the Assembly will continue to support the institution to overcome all its challenges ranging from infrastructure, manpower and equipment for the overall development of the state,” he said.

Earlier, the Executive Director of the School, Alhaji Nasiru Aliyu, commended the lawmakers for the visit, saying that it  would assist in improving the standard of the school.

Aliyu further lauded the state government’s commitment in improving the standard of the school, but appealed to the Assembly to give due consideration to the school’s 2020 budget.

“Sultan Abdulrahman School of Health Technology Gwadabawa was established in the year 1992, but since its establishment the school has no privilege of any infrastructure.

“We are aware that the state government is planning massive construction of infrastructure in the school, as such we solicit for your support as lawmakers to enable our dream come to reality,” he said.
