Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello has assured people of the State, of his administration’s determination to continue to strengthen the healthcare sector in order to ensure their healthy living.
Bello stated this in Lokoja in a statement made available to Journalists through his Director-General, Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, assuring the people that the World Class Diagnostic Center will soon be completed and commissioned to serve the people of the State and Nigeria at large.
“The Kogi Diagnostic Center is poised to be the best in the country. We are working hard to complete and commission the project that has gulped hundreds of millions of naira since our assumption of office in 2016.
“Medical Diagnosis is a critical aspect of health management as it serves the double purposes of preventing ill health as well as managing health conditions.
“As a responsible Governor, I feel sad when citizens die not because we don’t have the medical facilities to manage their ill health; but because the culture of early diagnosis was poor.
“We commiserate with the family of one of our top Directors who was hardworking and dedicated to duties, late Mr. Haruna David who slumped and died recently. Our hearts are with his family and the entire Civil Servants in the State.
“To this end, I have directed the Commissioner for Health to quickly put together, a healthcare program that will enable us know the health conditions of our dear civil servants in the state”.
The Governor assured the people that the Healthcare Plus will continue to make healthcare accessible and affordable to the poor, saying expectant mothers are now at peace because his administration has made child delivery free in the “grossly improved health institutions across the States.
“One of my electioneering promises to the people of Kogi State was to ensure quality and affordable healthcare delivery. We have done a lot in improving our health training institutions and upgrade the standards of our health facilities.
“My administration has dragged down maternal mortality with the intent of ensuring that lives are not lost in the process of giving birth to lives.
“I want to assure Kogites that my administration will continue to strive to actualize this laudable project”.
