Governor Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has expressed displeasure over the dilapidated condition of Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching hospital (MAWTH), Kano.

This is contained in a statement issued by his Press Secretary, Bature Dawakin-Tofa, in Kano on Saturday.

Governor Yusuf stated this shortly after an on-the-spot assessment and unscheduled visit to the hospital.

He explained that the teaching hospital for training medical professionals and provision of tertiary medical care needed to be equipped with modern facilities to enhance knowledge and service delivery.

The governor said that the hospital would be overhauled and expanded to boost its services, especially maternity services and care for the children.

“It is disheartening to meet the hospital that caters for the medical needs  of thousands of patients daily in a condition uncomfortable for human inhabitation; a situation that needs to be checked and corrected,” Mr Yusuf declared.

He assured that the state government would ensure the provision of modern health facilities to improve quality healthcare services for the governed.

“I do instruct the management of the hospital to as a matter of urgency forward the request for rehabilitation and expansion of the hospital for immediate action to restore the lost glory of the gigantic health facility,” he directed.

He also charged medical personnel of all cadres to be at their duty posts as at when due and discharge their undertakings according to stipulated rules for the people of the state and beyond.

The governor also assured residents that the state government would do all what it takes in the execution of policies that have direct bearing to the lives of people of the state, especially the downtrodden.
