    Yobe Varsity Teaching Hospital to commence kidney transplant – Commissioner

    Dr Mohammed Gana, Yobe Commissioner of Health and Human Services says the state University Teaching Hospital (YSUTH), Damaturu, will soon commence kidney transplant.

    Gana told the News Agency of Nigeria NAN in Damaturu on Tuesday that  the hospital would  conduct the operation in partnership with the Urology and Nephrology Centre, Mansoura University, Egypt.

    Gana said the partnership would see doctors from the centre visiting YSUTH to conduct kidney transplantation and YSUTH doctors receiving advanced training in nephrology at the centre in Egypt.

    “ The ultimate management of renal impairment is kidney transplantation and we know how expensive it is and difficult to access.

    “ This is why Gov. Mai Mala Buni decided to provide kidney transplanting equipment to YSUTH, since the hospital has the manpower to use them with good training.

    “ All these are aimed at bringing down the cost of renal treatment and bringing succour to our people,” the commissioner said.

    He said that dialysis was free at the hospital, adding that new dialysis units would soon be established in Gashua and Nguru, two areas worst hit by the disease.

    On prevention and cause establishment, the commissioner said the state and development partners would soon commission a high-profile-research.

    “ Kidney disease is prevalent in Yobe, especially in the northern parts of the state.

    “ The research will be collaborative, because this disease is also present in some parts of Jigawa.

    ”We will work together in identifying the cause and addressing the disease.

    “ Preliminary findings are linking the problem to chemical fertilizer and water supply.

    ” If it is water supply, we will liaise with the Ministry of Water Resources for interventions,” Gana said.

    The commissioner expressed optimism that the research would unravel the mystery behind the upsurge cases of renal disease in the state.

    Buni condoles with families of 10 auto crash victims in Yobe

    Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe on Monday condoled with the families of 10 persons who died in a recent car accident in Fika Local Government Area of the state.

    Buni expressed his condolences in a statement by his Director-General Press and Media Affairs, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, in Damaturu.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Police Command in Yobe had earlier confirmed the accident which occurred in Bulakos in the late hours of Saturday, July 2.

    The Command’s Spokesman, DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, told NAN that 10 persons were confirmed killed and seven others injured in an accident involving a Hummer bus and a Sharon bus.

    The crash was said to have happened around 10.22pm on Saturday near Gashaka along the Potiskum-Gombe Road.

    The governor described the accident as tragic and unfortunate.

    He, however, urged motorists to observe traffic laws, avoid excessive speeding and over loading.

    “Motorists on night journeys and in the rains must drive with extra care for their personal safety, the safety of other road users and passengers,” he said.

    Buni prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and quick recovery of other passengers who sustained injuries in the accident.

    “ I pray Allah to grant their families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” the governor said.
