Kano State Government has employed 2,458 health workers comprising doctors, nurses, laboratory scientists and other paramedical workers.

The government in statement issued by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, director general, Media and Communications, Government House, Kano, said it also recruited 1,000 sanitation vanguards

from across the 44 local government areas of the state.

The state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, personally issued employment letters to the newly recruited health workers at Government House lawn on Wednesday in an occasion where some health interventions for Kano citizens were also launched.

The programmes include launch of 11 mosquito control motorised fumigation machines, distribution of anti malaria commodities and fumigation equipment to 748 health facilities in

the 44 local government areas, launch of operational guidelines for Drug Revolving Scheme, as well as Zauren Tsafta Programme/Committees.

Governor Ganduje explained that “the initiatives were aimed at improving access to sanitation and health, thereby contributing significantly to educational advancement, poverty alleviation and overall human development.”

He hinted that his administration had accorded serious attention to quality health services delivery, explaining that his commitment to health development was exemplified in the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment such MRI machines, digital mammography, CT

scan machines and digital fluoroscopy machines, among sundry facilities that were hitherto unavailable at the state’s health facilities.

He stated further that besides initiating far-reaching health policies and programmes, his administration had committed billions of naira to the procurement of medical consumables,

provision of more infrastructure as well as recruitment of trained personnel in the health sector.

The governor announced that the recruited sanitation vanguards were graduates of Kano School of Hygiene, who would be paid a monthly allowance of N15,000 until they would be permanently engaged by the state government based on performance.

In his remarks on the occasion, the state Health Commissioner, Dr. Kabiru Ibrahim Getso, commended the efforts of the state government in procuring the basic health kits and equipment for the state owned health institutions.

He, however, urged all health workers across the 44 local government of the state to ensure judicious use of the equipment, as well as ensure maintenance culture, so as to protect the basic equipment. (Nigerian Pilot)
