The lawmaker recalled that he had earlier intervened in the equipping seven PHCs in his senatorial district in Kaduna North and Kaduna South local government areas, Kajuru and Chikun as well as Igabi and Giwa area councils.

‘’At Birnin Gwari local government area, I have constructed and equipped a whole modern Obstetrics and Gynecology Centre,’’ he added.

Senator Uba Sani further said that he did not only equipped those seven PHCs but also built staff quarters for medical personnel, adding that that is what he intends to at the two additional PHCs when voted into office.

Speaking on his achievements, the senator said that apart from sponsoring a record number of 32 bills at the upper legislative chambers, he has also provided hostels, built Information Communication and Technology(ICT) centres in schools and skills acquisition centres across the state.
