The Kano state government will recruit more medical doctors and allied personnel to man its hospitals in a bid to facilitate delivery of more efficient health care services, the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has promised.
Dr. Ganduje disclosed this during the commissioning of the renovated and upgraded Dambatta General Hospital, under the 2012 MDGs – Conditional Grant Scheme state track projects.
He said the government acknowledges the fact that the health sector in the state is under-staffed and that efforts are on to fill in the gap so that the congestion often witnessed at major hospitals in the state capital would be significantly reduced.
The governor further stated that funds would soon be released for procurement of specialized medical equipment and facilities to make services in the public hospitals affordable and of good quality.
Dr. Ganduje highlighted that the abandoned hospital projects at Giginyu and Zoo road are being pursued with vigour to ensure speedy completion, asserting that his administration is committed to the attainment of all the Sustainable Development Goals, as endorsed by the United Nations.
In his remarks, the state Commissioners of Health, Dr. Kabiru Ibrahim Getso explained that the state government has designated its eight hospitals including that of Dambatta, as referral centers to accommodate the teeming patients, urging the people to patronize them for their well being.
The state Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Hajiya Aisha Muhammad Bello, stressed the need for members of the public to take ownership of such projects after completion. According to her, this approach will go a long way in facilitating the sustainability of the projects.
