Rep urges FG to establish FMC in Kano
House of Representatives member for Tarauni Local Council of Kano State, Hafizu Kawu, has urged the Federal Government to establish a Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in the state.
While responding to questions at the Kano Correspondents’ Chapel’s 2023 Dialogue Series, yesterday, the lawmaker said the project would reduce the burden on Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), which caters for the medical needs of patients also from neighbouring states, like Jigawa, Katsina and other states.
He said: “In view of this challenge, I initiated a bill, which is on the table of President Muhammadu Buhari for assent, to build a Federal Medical Centre in Kano, to further reduce the burden on AKTH in the provision of medical services.”
On his contributions to the advancement of education in his constituency, he said:
“During my electioneering for the House of Representatives seat to represent the people of the area, they complained to me that they lacked classrooms. To satisfy their yearnings, I built six classroom blocks. In terms of health, I built not less than two new hospitals and renovated clinics, to cater for the rural community and environs.”
