Dangote N7 billion hospital in Kano nears completion

At the ongoing 36th Kano International, this weekend, Mansur Ahmed, executive director in Dangote Group, Trade fair, said the company had expended about N2 billion so far in the execution of projects under its corporate social responsibility’s component.

He said,“In regard to health, the company in the next two weeks will be commissioning seven of the 11 Primary Health Care Centres it is building across the state, and also the company will be mobilizing the contractor working at Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital Theatre back to site."

While paying a visit to Kano State Governor over the weekend, Halima Dangote, chief executive, Dangote Foundation, confirmed the construction of the N7 billion naira state-of-the-art operating theatre and diagnostic centre at the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital and said it will be completed next year.

She attributed the earlier delay to technical hitches and said the new contractor – Dantata and Sawoe – had returned to site.

 She also said the routine immunisation programme of the Foundation is being extended to Bauchi, Yobe, Maiduguri and Katsina.

Meanwhile, Dangote Group says it has concluded plans to build a power generation plant that will be capable of producing 500 megawatt electricity in the commercial city of Kano.

 Fantastic news and I must say Nigerian health care is stepping up SERIOUSLY with all the state-of-the art government and private hospitals cropping up in several states.

Definitely 5years from now, everything will be different and much better.
