Kano to Establish 400 – Bed Hospitals in Each New Emirate


KANO (FIC KANO) The Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, while speaking recently at a condolence visit paid to the Emir of Rano, Alhaji (Dr.) Tafida Abubakar (Autan Bawo),  over the death of his son, Aliyu Tafida,  stated that his administration would soon commence the upgrade of the General Hospitals, located within the headquarters of each of the four newly created Emirates, in order to enhance the capacity for accommodating 400 beds.

 The Governor assured that all the hospitals would be equipped with state of the art equipment, to cater for all medical needs of the Emirates, as well as take away the  burden placed on other hospitals located within  Kano metropolitan Emirate.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Abba Anwar, Ganduje reiterated that, one of the major reasons why he created the new Emirates was to make life easier for those living within the jurisdiction of the newly established royal space.

While assuring that plans are already on – going for the upgrade of those hospitals, he maintained that “his administration is determined to make Kano one of the best States, with the best healthcare delivery system, we are determined to make our position in this sector, more profound, more pronounced and more consolidated”

In his response, Emir Autan Bawo commended the Governor for his foresight in advancing major and most fundamental problems facing the Emirate with the view of clearing them.
