PRESIDENT TINUBU APPROVES UPGRADE OF HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE ACROSS 6 GEO-POLITICAL ZONES                                                                        16-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      President Bola Tinubu has approved the immediate upgrade of key health infrastructure and equipment across the six geo-political zones in line with his administration’s vision of overhauling the health and social welfare sector for enhanced service delivery.

To this effect, the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in collaboration with the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority, NSIA, will carry out comprehensive upgrade of cancer-treatment infrastructure and other critical developments in six tertiary hospitals across the zones.

This will also see to the full renovation and expansion of prior investments to improve broad-based access to high-quality healthcare in the six geo-political zones of the federation.

Accordingly, Teaching Hospitals of Ahmadu Bello University, University of Nigeria, University of Jos, Federal Teaching Hospital, Katsina, and that of Lagos University have been marked for the establishment of Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Centres.

Also marked for expansion across the fields of radiology, clinical pathology, medical and radiation oncology, and cardiac catheterization are the Reference Hospital, Kaduna, and Medical Diagnostic Centre Complex, Enugu.

Others are Usman Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto, University College Hospital, Ibadan, and University of Uyo Teaching Hospital.

The rest are Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital, Bauchi, Federal Medical Centre, Asaba, Harmony Advanced Diagnostic Centre Complex, Ilorin, University of Jos Teaching Hospital, and Federal Medical Centre, Nguru.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, explains that the projects are to be delivered between 12 and 18 months.
