He remarked that all the 114 healthcare facilities visited have standard infrastructures and equipment required to provide the basic minimum package of health services apart from a few flashpoints of manpower gap in some hard-to-reach areas.

“Haven worked in the state and left about 2 years ago, I could not believe the transformation I have witnessed in my return to the state”, he said.

In his response, the Commissioner of Health, Dr. Habu Dahiru reiterated that the revitalisation of healthcare facilities in the state was as a result of the governor’s resolve in prioritising health since assuming office.
