TO boost healthcare services at the grassroots level, the lawmaker representing Southern Kaduna Senatorial Zone, Senator Danjuma Laah, at the weekend donated hospital equipment worth N200 million to 39 Primary Health Care (PHC) centres in the area.
The equipments were delivered to Turaki Buga Memorial Hospital, Kpak Kagora, in Kaura local council, of Kaduna State with the first consignments arriving December, last year, according to Mr. Bala Gideon Duniya, one of the legislative aide of the senator at a ceremony in Kaduna at the weekend.
Each of the benefiting PHCs got 72 items, which included, hospital beds with mattresses, dressing trolleys, binocular microscopes, kidneys dishes, medium size refrigerators, a generating set, a motorcycle, delivery couches with stirrups, suture kits, diagnostic sets, autoclaves, fire extinguishers, nursery cots among others.
Senator Laah, who spoke at the occasion said he was unhappy with the slow delivery of campaign promises by both the state and Federal Government, adding that this prompted the quick intervention as a result of the dwindling health facilities in his zone.
