A Dialysis Centre For Nigeria's Military

President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday inaugurated the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) Dialysis Centre in Abuja, Nigeria.

Chief of Defence Intelligence, Rear Admiral Gabriel Okoi, said that the need for the centre arose due to the large number of Nigerians who required treatment for Kidney ailments.
The newly commissioned centre centre will cater to military officers as well as civilians.

The president said that, previously, dialysis centres were quite few in the country causing a number of untimely deaths.

According to him, his chief personal physician has inspected the centre which is already working with the State House medical team in the provision of medicare.

Jonathan also said that the agency would continue to partner with other agencies and the international community to tackle the security challenges facing the country.
