Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf claims he inherited a deteriorating health sector from his predecessor, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje.
He claims that the previous administration led to Kano’s poor prevalence of health-related disorders.
During a business visit to Kano by Ghana’s Deputy Minister of Health, Governor Yusuf revealed that upon taking office, he observed the health sector in disarray, with several hospitals in a state of ruin.
“Our first priority when we took office was to begin a comprehensive renovation of the State general hospitals.” “In some cases, we had to completely rebuild them in order to create the necessary environment for quality healthcare delivery,” said the governor.
Governor Yusuf also stated that in order to address specific difficulties, particularly maternity deliveries, the administration launched free maternity services in all hospitals and ordered the entire reconstruction of the state’s 44 primary healthcare clinics.
Governor Yusuf stated that his administration had achieved tremendous progress in its first hundred days in office.
“We have worked tirelessly to ensure effective service delivery in the health sector.”
“Our administration has provided free maternal healthcare to pregnant women and begun the renovation of state hospitals.” “We will soon begin the comprehensive rehabilitation of all of the state’s general hospitals,” he stated.
Ghana’s Deputy Minister of Health, Mahma Asei Seini, stated that they were in Kano to enhance ties between the two countries.
