The Kano State government says it has concluded arrangements to inaugurate the newly constructed Muhammadu Buhari Cancer Treatment Centre in October 2022.

The Commissioner for Health, Aminu Tsanyawa, said this at a news conference on Sunday in Kano.

The event is part of activities to signal the commencement of the maiden Kano Health Week.

Mr Tsanyawa said the centre, which had been completed and fully equipped, would attract health tourists across the African region and beyond.

He said the Kano Health Week was designed to showcase the feat achieved by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s administration in the health sector.

“The health sector under this administration went through a lot of transformation as Governor Abdullahi Ganduje gave priority to the sector,” he said.

The commissioner further explained that health week would provide an opportunity for medical outreach services and other activities.

He urged residents of the state to avail themselves of the opportunity to access free healthcare services during the exercise billed to hold between September 19 and 23.
