By Rabiu Sani-Ali

The Kano State government has spent over 100 million Naira to provide medical supplies to the Getso health center in the Gwarzo local government area.

Dr Ibrahim Tsanyawa, state health commissioner, said this when handing over equipment to the management of Getso hospital.

This is contained in a statement by Mr. Sunusi Kofar-Naisa, spokesman for the Ministry of the Environment, on Friday in Kano.

He said Tsanyawa, represented by Dr Abdullahi Shehu, the ministry’s director of medical services, said the move was aimed at improving the delivery of health services at the grassroots.

“The state government has spent over 200 million naira for the rehabilitation and modernization of the hospital; the projects included the construction of additional rooms, a theater, a laboratory and an x-ray section as well as a staff quarter, ”he said.

Tsanyawa said the European Union also donated solar panels worth over 300 million Naira to the hospital.

The commissioner urged people to reciprocate by visiting the hospital when they are sick.

State Environment Commissioner Dr Kabiru Getso also praised Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for his commitment to transforming health service delivery in the state.

According to Getso, the Ganduje administration has implemented viable health infrastructure projects to improve the health status and social and economic well-being of people in rural areas.

“Ganduje also provided facilities to Gwarzo General Hospital worth 90 million Naira, and an additional 70 million Naira was spent on renovating health facilities in Komi, Unguwar -Tudu, Dangashi, Sabon Birni and Dorogo Kara, among others.

“I have assured you that the equipment is standard and modern, there is no doubt that this will improve the delivery of health services to our people,” said Getso.

He tasked health workers to ensure that the equipment is used efficiently to ensure quality service delivery.

Alhaji Halilu Ahmed-Getso, a community leader, also praised the state government for this gesture.

Getso, former managing director of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), praised Ganduje for executing viable projects aimed at accelerating sustainable development in the state. (NOPE)
