Beds donation: HMB commends KAROTA, CPC Boss

 By Nasiru Muhammad

Kano State Hospitals Manage­ment Board (HMB) has ap­plauded the Managing Di­rector of the State Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA) and also the act­ing Managing Director of Consumer Protection Council (CPC), Hon. Baffa Babba Dan’Agundi for donating beds, mattresses and bed sheets to Dawanau Psychiatric hospital.

 The Director General of the board, Dr. Nasiru Alhassan Kabo made the commendation in a statement issued by Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Public Re­lations Officer of the board and made available to media outfits.

Dr. Kabo said Hon. Dan’Agundi was a friend to the state health sector since coming on board, recalling that in 2019 he had cleared Murtala Mu­hammad Specialist Hospital roadside of congestion of petty trades and ille­gitimate parking of commercial vehi­cles in order to maintain a favourable environment for both workers and pa­tients.

He also said that the donation by him was timely in view of the influx of patients to the hospital for one psychi­atric issue or the other from the state and beyond.

He assured him and people of the state of judicious utilization of the items, charging the management of the facility to make proper use of the donation as the board would keep its eyes open to see that the aim of the in­tervention is realized.

“Health system is enormously vast so much that government singlehand­edly cannot shoulder all its responsi­bilities.

“Its equipments are so expensive and government is doing its best to equip the hospitals despite limited re­sources.

“So, there is need for well to mean individuals to be supporting public hospitals.

“This will unarguably go a long in improving service delivery in our fa­cilities,” said the Director General.

He then commended the state gov­ernor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for paying attention to healthcare sys­tem of the state, appreciating his com­mitment to seeing that the state health sector attains maximum improvement.

On his part, the incharge of the hos­pital, Dr. Usman Muhammad Minjibir was glad for the donation, revealing that: “Dr. Baffa Babba Dan Agundi has donated 30 beds, 30 mattresses and 30 bed sheets to the facility. We accept the donation with a lot of glad­ness.”

He maintained that the items would be mounted at the main ward of the fa­cility in order to accommodate more psychiatric patients, pointing out that it would inevitably enhance service delivery in the facility.

“Dawanau Psychiatric Hospital is the largest facility, not only in Kano but also in other neighbouring states, that treats psychiatric complications.

“There is need for people, especial­ly the wealthy ones, to come and see where they can intervene.

“People with psychiatric problems need assistance the most because many of them can’t work and do other handcraft activities to cater for them­selves,” Dr. Minjibir appealed.
