Gov. Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has expressed displeasure over the dilapidated condition of Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching hospital (MAWTH), Kano.
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,” Yusuf declared.
“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 assured that the state government would ensure the provision of modern heath facilities to improve quality healthcare services for the governed.
