    He called on stakeholders, traditional leaders and government at all levels to emulate federal government donkeys to rural farmers to boost production of the animals.

    He advised the beneficiaries to take good care of the donkeys as the association would not tolerate selling them.

    According to him, the association has implemented measures to monitor the beneficiaries, to ensure that the distributed donkeys are alive and in good physical shape.

    Adamawa transport board seeks for declaration of emergency in road transport sector

    The management of  Adamawa Sunshine  Transport Board (ASSTB)  has called on   federal and state governments  to declare emergency in the road transport sector of the nation.

    Muhammed Tukur -Abbo, the board General Manager gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria   in Yola on Wednesday.

    He said the call became necessary and imperative, considering that about 85 per cent of Nigerians used roads to transport themselves from one place to another.  

    According to him, Nigerians are more of using  vehicles, motor cycles, bicycles  and other related means of transportation to travel and in the movement of goods and services.  

    He lamented that a reasonable percentage of existing federal and state roads  in some parts of the country were  in bad shapes waiting for rehabilitation or total reconstruction.  

    He, however, lauded the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in rejuvenating the rail transport sector through construction of many Kilometres of rail lines and procurement of sophisticated trains.  

    He noted with dismay the current price of fuel, especially diseal which had made maintenance and road transportation activities difficult,  especially transportation of spare parts and other essential consumables within the country.  

    The manager sought for Federal Government’s intervention like it did in the aviation industry, by reintroducing mass transit system and palliative measures to cushion the hardship being experienced by pasengers.  

    He lauded the efforts of Gov Ahmadu Fintiri for constructing and rehabilitating  numerous roads connecting urban and rural communities in the state.  

    He said the board  was expecting additional fleet of vehicles from the state government to complement the existing number of vehicles in the agency.

    ” We will allocate those vehicles to our qualified drivers for inter state transportation.

    Adamawa govt. builds 6 cottage hospitals, 40 PHCs

    Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa says his administration has built six cottage hospitals, with more than 40 primary health care (PHC) facilities also remodeled and renovated in the state.

    The governor made this known at the “Adamawa Physicians’ Week 2022,” organised by Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Yola on Tuesday.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the theme of the event was: “Nigeria’s Healthcare Delivery System and 2023 Democratic Transition: A Time to Change the Narrative.

    ” Fintiri, who was represented by the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Abdullahi Isa, said that the medical equipment for the facilities had already started arriving from the United States of America.

    According to him, his interest in healthcare delivery has also encouraged some partners to do more for the state.

    NMA Chairman in the state, Dr Solomon Bulus, lauded the government for the infrastructural development recorded in the state and called for more, especially in the area of health workers’ welfare.

    He decried the shortage of manpower and the challenges being faced by health workers in the country generally, adding: “doctors are being underpaid, overworked and targeted by kidnappers.

    ” Bulus called for the review of doctors’ salary structure, which, he said, had been overdue since 2014. He also urged Nigerians to intervene over the review of the new salary structure in order to improve the welfare of health workers.

    Speaking, Dr Hayatu Ahmad, a Consultant Peadiatrician at Federal Medical Centre, Azare, Bauchi State, decried the challenges of manpower in the health sector.

    He particularly cited a state with seven general hospitals but without medical doctors to provide the needed services.

    Ahmad, who stated that World Health Organisation (WHO) had recommended one doctor to 1,000 patients, urged governments at all levels to do the needful in order to salvage the situation.
