He said that the government was concerned about the vision and mission of general hospitals that appeared to be
declining by the day due to its old structures, age and neglect of many years by successive governments.
“That was why government decided to secure a loan to the tune of N2 billion to renovate and expand the hospitals.
“The government decided to award contract for the renovation and expansion of the hospitals so as to offer better healthcare
services to the people. Very soon, the challenges would be over.”
Mohammed added that the Bauchi State Government had already published the tender for contractors to subscribe for bidding.
He noted that the health sector was a priority of his administration and that a state of emergency was declared on the sector in the state.
He explained that UBA had donated N100 million for the renovation of some parts of the hospital as part of its social responsibility.
He said “Alkaleri General Hospital is one of the most visited because of its proximity to the main road linking Bauchi, Gombe and other
states in the North East.
He assured that he will provide Alkaleri general hospital with a big generator for power as well as empoy more health personnel across the state.(NAN)
