The Zamfara state government has approved the construction of 147 50-bed cottage hospitals in the state.
This was disclosed by Governor Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) when he paid Sallah homage to the Emir of Maradun, Alhaji Garba Tambari in his palace shortly after the Eid –Fitri prayer.
Matawalle, who was in his birthplace, Maradun, to observe the end of this year’s Ramadan fast told the emir that all the 147 hospitals will be provided with a tricycle ambulances each.
Matawalle said the decision to construct these hospitals and provide the ambulances is to bring healthcare closer to the remote areas of the state and serve as an avenue of networking health services in the state.
“The decision to work on this project is also to ensure that we fulfill our promises to the electorate that our administration will be people oriented and not self serving,” Matawalle further stated.
